Obituary

Richard Wright , 69, of Columbus, Ohio, passed away on November 8th, 2021 after complications due to Covid. Richard was born on September 1, 1952 to Daniel and Erma Wright in Columbus. He graduated from East High School in 1971.   After graduation, he landed his first job at the mental hospital as an orderly for 2 years, then three years at Huntington National Bank, then went on to work at General Motors from which he retired.  In 1970, he met Linda McClendon, and they wed in 1971, going on to have four beautiful children, Sonya, Saundra, Sabrina and Sequoia. Richard was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he often mentioned. He was unendingly proud of his grandchildren, Sonequia, Sema'j,  Savion,  Savon,  Sakiya,  Sirron,  Sion and Saige, great grandchild, Ayden Wright;  bonus grandchildren  Aaliyah, Mikala, Kaseem, Marchello, Carmelo and Nyajah,  and always tried his best to support them. Richard was also a passionate fisherman and could often be found at someone's fishing hole with his best friend Ron Mickens when he wasn’t at home.   Anyone who knew Richard knew that he was the most loving father and husband a family could ask for. Richard was predeceased by Daniel and Erma Wright (parents). He is survived by Robert (his twin brother and Charles (brother).
