named him George W. Wright. George lived out his childhood in Brazoria Co., TX and
matriculated through the public school system. He graduated from Marshall High School in

were born. For 50 years, George could be found in worship every Sunday morning at Lilly Grove

he served with a smile. He joined the great cloud of witnesses to include his parents: General and
Alberta Wright Sr., grandson: Dominique Wright; siblings General Wright Jr., Robert Wright,
