June 10, 1949 – March 12, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Brian Wright on Saturday, March 12, 2022 in his 73th year after a short illness.
Beloved husband of Roslyn Wright (nee Kightley). Cherished father of daughter Laura (Mark) Perry (nee Wright), predeceased by his mother Rachel Wright, and father Eric Wright. Much loved brother to Vivienne (Jim) Davidson. Much treasured brother-in-law to Robert (Ann) Kightley and Jim Kightley. Brian will be missed by an extended family of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends around Canada.
Brian was a true friend who was always ready with a joke, a story, or a helping hand. He never met a bug he couldn’t kill (legally, of course) or a piece of junk that couldn’t be made into amazing lawn art. His ability to relate to people and become your closest friend in a microsecond was uncanny and served him well in his career with serving customers in the pest control industry. However, his ability with a rake, shovel, and wood in landscaping and beautifying yards was legendary and many a home of his friends and family proudly display the results of this talent! Bob Seger lost his biggest fan and we’re all grateful that Brian wanted to listen and not sing along!
Celebration of Life to be held in early spring with invitations to be sent at a later date. There will be a private cremation and internment at the family plot at the Barrie Union Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Bethell Hospice Foundation (foundation.bethellhospice.org) or the Canadian Cancer Society (cancer.ca).
The family wishes to express their deepest thanks to all of their friends and family for their support and love over the past three months. It takes a village to both raise a child and to care for a family losing a loved one. A special thanks to the amazing people at Bethell Hospice for the end-of-days care and attention for Brian.
