Obituary: Wright, Kelly

Age 50

WRIGHT, Kelly Kelly passed away at his home August 30, 2013. Kelly was born November 30, 1962 in Sandpoint, Idaho. He graduated from Cusick High School in 1981. After high school he moved to Alaska to work in construction. This is where he started plumbing. He moved back to Spokane in 1986. While on a job in Goldendale, he met Andrea. They married September 17, 1988. They would have celebrated their 25th anniversary this month. They were blessed with two wonderful children. Kelly was a simple man who worked hard and would do anything asked of him. Anyone who knew him, know his children were his pride and joy. He was so proud when Melissa told him she was starting nursing school this fall. He knew she would be great caring for others and it would take her where she wanted to go in life. Kelly and Matt were best buds. They fished and hunted together. Watching Matt grow into a young man gave him great pride. As a family, many special memories were made at their family cabin, Kelly’s favorite place to be. Kelly is survived by his wife Andrea; children Melissa and Matthew; his parents John and DeLila Wright; brother Dennis Wright (Jenise); and sister Lisa Canning; father-in-law and mother-in-law Frank and Beverly Schultz; sister-in-law Angela Schultz; brother-in-law Kirk Schultz (Donna); also several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. And last but not least, his Grandma Minnie who showed him nothing but love his entire life. Kelly will be missed by his family and friends. He was a true good guy. We will cherish the many, many memories we have and always keep him in our heart. Graveside service will be Wednesday, September 4th at 2pm at Calispel Cemetery in Cusick, WA.
