Wright and Evelyn were some of the first friends we made when we moved to TN, and what dear friends at that. We were so sorry to hear about Wright’s passing. About 4 years ago Wright had invited us to his 100th birthday party and we had so hoped to be there celebrating with him. Now he’s going to be celebrating in the best place possible and we’ll look forward to seeing him again one day. All our love to Evelyn. Carol and Moses Gentey

Years of all good memories with Wright - auctions - flea markets - shops & great converstions in South Dakota. Another loss to the antique business and the neighborhood of man. Our thoughts and prayers to Evelyn and family and friends near & far. God Bless.

I will miss Uncle Wright a great dream. When they came to Sioux Falls he always called me and I sure will miss those calls. We hadn’t been able to visit lately and I hope he knows how special he was to me. He will be missed here on earth but there are some mighty fine folks for him to catch up with on the other side!! With Love, Chris

I have many fond memories of Wright throughout my life. Recently he was one of the people I was most excited to see at the reunions and I had a great time visiting his home as a child. I always called him great uncle wright because he was about the same age as my Grandpa Joe Bailey. He wasn't my uncle but he was a Great Wright. I will miss him and I am so sorry for your loss. I pray the lord bring you solace.

I met Wright back in the early nighties while working for his son mike in Kingsport TN he was always chatty always cheerful and all around a great person one of those people that made you happy to have known when I moved to GA and opened my shop he stopped on his trip to FL just to say hi not many friends of mine did that which goes to show how great of a man he was I’m glad to have known him and glad he’s a peace now you will be sorely missed
