Obituary For Paul David Wright
Paul David Wright age 83 passed away at his home in Cedar Springs on April 18, 2021 with his family at his side. He was born January 16, 1938 in Flint, Michigan to Rev. Ira and Sylvia Wright. David worked for first class delivery for many years. He was a key delivery driver for this company and built many relationships. David was a faithful servant and ushered at his church for 19 years. He loved to get to know someone for who they really were. David had the love of Christ for everyone he met because Christ was number one in his life and it shined through him. He was a very loving, kind, funny, humbled man. He also was very family oriented. He loved Sunday dinners with his family followed by watching his favorite football team the Detroit Lions. He loved to sing with anyone and would be the first to tell you if you hit the wrong note. He left a beautiful legacy for his family to follow. And in his favorite words “can you dig it”. He was preceded in death by his parents, Rev. Ira and Sylvia Wright; siblings, Byron, Bruce, Georgia, Ruth, and Phil; his son, Melvin Martin. He is survived by his children, Jennifer and Jim Griffin, Dawn Wright, Joseph and Kimberly Hamlin; grandchildren, Megan Wright, Marissa Abrigo, Brooke Fosmore, Ally Fosmore, Alyssa Griffin, Zach Griffin, Trinity Griffin, Leslie and Josh Gaydos, Brian and Rachel Hamlin; great grandchildren, Samuel and Silas Gaydos; brother, Richard and Sue Wright; several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, April 24, 12:00 Noon at City Church of Rockford with Rev. Jeff Walker officiating. Friends may meet the family at the church on Saturday 1 hour prior to the service. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to the Michigan Chapter of Cystic Fibrosis.
May he Rest In Peace!!!
