Mr. John Wright Jr. Obituary

John Wright Jr. was born April 12, 1937, to the late John Wright, Sr. and Wilma Lee Simmons Wright in Bulloch County, Georgia.

At the age of 19, “Jr.” relocated to Durham, North Carolina where he remained for the rest of his life.

Jr. was a one of a kind man. To know him was to love him. He enjoyed watching baseball, listening to his favorite tunes, and playing dominoes. Any time he visited home, you could always count on him starting up a game of “bones” with his nephews.

On Saturday, February 24, 2024, Jr answered the Master’s call and peacefully rested from his labor.

In addition to his parents, Jr is preceded in death by (1) daughter, Dorothy Wright; (3) sisters: Wilma Lee Jones, Sylvia Doretha Young, Mary Ellison; (4) step-siblings: Levern Mosley, Bonnie Reddick, Edward Percell, and Robert Percell Jr., and (1) son-in-law, Dwayne Tremble.

Mourning his loss, but also remembering his legacy, he leaves to cherish fond memories, (6) children: Johnette Wright, Ronald Wright, Donald (Lorraine) Wright, Chevelle (Vernon) Leathers, and Anthony Wright all of Durham, NC, and Jonnie Wright-Tremble; Lawrenceville, GA; (1) brother, Eugene (Debolia) Wright, Sr; Statesboro, GA; (1) sister, Maggie (Terry) Kelly; Statesboro, GA; (5) grandchildren, (7) great grandchildren, and (3) great-great grandchildren.
