ROBERT L. WRIGHT
Age 78, of Batavia, died Friday morning January 14, 2011 at United Memorial Medical Center. He was born May 12, 1932 in Batavia son of the late Martin & Edith (Heale-Conrad) Wright, step-son of the late LaVerne Heale, also preceded in death by his wife Barbara (Turner) Wright, sisters Gladys Wright, Katherine Weiser, brothers Roger & William Heale. Robert was gravely injured at the age of 10 when he was struck by a truck in front of his home. His many years of subsequent back problems did not deter his love for life. He always minimized the daily physical pain he endured. Robert was a retiree of Lapp Insulator in LeRoy and developed many supportive friendships while residing at the Genesee County Nursing Home. He enjoyed painting, singing country songs, fishing and time spent with his children & grandchildren.
Surviving are his loving daughters Bonnie Wright of Batavia and Diane Smith of LeRoy; sisters Arline (late Ronald) Gillette of Wyoming, Patricia (late Bob) Passage of Alexander, Beverly (Mike) Maniace of Batavia, Lori (Dan) Andrews of Linwood, Karen (Scott) Sheffield of Texas; brothers David (Norma) Heale of Bergen & LaVerne (Gail) Heale of Caledonia; 5 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, dear friend Joan Turner along with many nieces, nephews, cousins & friends.
There is no prior visitation. Family and friends are invited to attend a 2:00 PM Celebration of Life Service Saturday January 29, 2011 at City Church in Batavia.
