Obituary for David Michael Wright Sr.

David Michael  Wright Sr.
David Michael Wright Sr. began writing his story on the 21st day of January 1953 in Pasadena, Texas. His life was filled with laughter, loss and most importantly love concluding on the 11th day of March 2018 in Pasadena, Texas.

David met Debbie Yates in July, 1969 and shortly after made her his bride in the spring of 1970. Forty-Eight years of marriage they would have shared together on April 3, 2018.

Over the last 65 years David has made several relationships but the ones he leaves behind were the dearest to his heart. In his passing he leaves his loving wife Debbie, quick witted son David Wright Jr and his bride Brianna, and his baby girl Dee Ann Wright. He also leaves behind his grandchildren Preston and Joseph Wright, Kevin Boudreau and wife Heather, granddaughter Mackenzie Boudreau; and great-grandson Maximus Boudreau; father-in-law C.P. “PawPaw” Yates and dear family friend of 49 years Debbie Hale, and a host of family and friends.

David has been reunited in Heaven with his father Johnnie Goodman Wright Sr; mother Patsy Johnson; brother Johnnie Wright Jr.; mother-in-law Annie
“MeeMaw” Yates; and best friend Doyle Hale.

David enjoyed his quiet time putting pen to paper writing poetry and music. David was a self-taught guitarist with the help of his friends and with that came all the music that filled his home. He used to love introducing new music to his children, playing the “Who is That?” game on road trips and strumming the guitar while his daughter picked out songs to sing along to but most importantly grabbing his brides hand and dancing with her bare feet in the kitchen. As his children got older it was their turn to introduce their father to new and interesting music which became a past time for the three of them. For many years David enjoyed spending Saturday’s at the golf course teaching his son patience on the back nine, playing a scramble with his friends or attempting to teach his daughter how to drive a golf cart. As the years went on and he could no longer take the clubs out, David began to enjoy a game of poker which later became a weekly endeavor for him. He looked forward to sitting around the table with his son and friends and most
importantly sweeping them under the table and taking their money.

I believe most of all, David enjoyed sitting around family and friends telling stories of the past and seeing the love and laughter that was shared by all. He especially enjoyed the annual Wright/Johnson family reunion in Point Enterprise.

David attended Sam Rayburn High School in Pasadena, Texas which is also where his wife, son and daughter graduated. Throughout his career he completed several college courses at San Jacinto Junior College – Central Campus.

David Wright was by definition a hard worker. He began working at Champion Paper in 1970 learning the trade of welding. After a few moves and a few years he then began working at Diamond Shamrock in 1978 (which is now known as Occidental Chemical) where he worked as a Welder, Pipefitter and an
Instrumentation Technician. After many years of hard work David had to go on long term disability in 2009.

Anyone who knew David Wright, “Dad” to many, knew that he was a man of many talents. He loved without judgment and without fault. David’s life changed in 1969 and he never looked

The Wright family would like to thank you for all the prayers that have been said throughout this process. In lieu of flowers please make a donation in the memory of David Wright to either of the following non-profit organizations.

Brave Bully Rescue – this organization is very close to the Wright family. David’s daughter has worked with the group for the last 3 years fostering bullies that were left behind or mistreated.

Pasadena Animal Shelter – this organization is one David followed avidly and always said, “If
only we had the land to save them all”.

David’s Honorary Pallbearers include family and dear friends as listed, Darrell Moore, Bubba Alston, Kevin Simms, Marcus Upchurch, Dwayne Landry, Gary Dearman and Billy Joe Neel.
