Kevin D. Wright

Mr. Wright

Kevin D. Wright, 53, of Bloomville, passed away Sunday, April 14, 2019, at James Cancer Center in Columbus with his family by his side.

Kevin was born June 14, 1965, to Gordon and Mary (Stephens) Wright. He married Terri (Jones) Nov. 15, 1986, in Tiffin, and she survives in Bloomville.

Survivors include his wife; two children, Jamie (Josh) Lipstraw of Bloomville and Jordan Wright of Columbus; a sister, Brenda (Bill) Merle of Columbus; brothers, Larry (Judy) Wright and Duane (Peg) Wright, both of Columbus; and three nephews, Andy and Nick Wright and Greg (Steph) Wright.

He was preceded in death by his father, Gordon Wright.

Kevin worked at Ardagh in Fremont for 15 years and was a member of the Bloomville United Church of Christ in Bloomville. Kevin always had the philosophy that there are no strangers in this world, just friends he had never met. Kevin was an avid fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes and loved to golf, be with his family and friends but most of all, as everyone knew, he loved to talk. Kevin’s passion was mowing first and foremost and his most prized possession besides his family was his truck.

Visitation for family and friends will be 4-8 p.m. Wednesday at Lindsey-Shook Funeral Home, Bloomville.

The funeral for Kevin will begin at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, April 18, 2019, at Bloomville United Church of Christ with Pastor Tom Kagy officiating. Burial will follow in Woodlawn Cemetery.

The family would like to ask that everyone please wear their Ohio State attire as we know this would have been Kevin’s wish.
