Wright, David Charles


David Charles Wright was born July 6th, 1953 in McAllen, Texas to Charles Pleasant Wright and Voncile Preston Wright.  David passed away August 9th, 2014 three weeks after being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.

In 1962 the family moved from Mission, Texas to Richardson, Texas where David attended school and graduated from J. J. Pearce High School.  In the early years of his life, David was a member of the First Christian Church of Richardson and attended regularly with his family.

David had two marriages.  The first was to Brenda Denise Wright and he has a daughter from that union, Susan Marie.  Susan is married to Majid Kamyab and they have two children: Kamran Jaxon and Kaylee Janah.  He is survived by his present wife, Laurann and their daughter, Kristina Lindsey.

Other survivors include his father and step mother, Charles and Naomi Wright and a sister and her husband, Lucinda and Jeffrey Cheshier along with their family: Elizabeth and Steven Cheshier and Christopher and Madison Cathey; and step-brother, Benjamin Kyle.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Voncile Wright and his infant son, Christopher Charles Wright.

David worked in new home construction and various carpentry jobs.  He enjoyed working, being creative, helping others and spending time with his family.  David made friends wherever he went and he will be missed terribly by all.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 AM Wednesday August 13, 2014 at Custer Road United Methodist Church in Plano, Texas. An additional memorial service is at 2:00 pm on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Carrollton Josey Ranch Lake Library.

It is wonderful to learn of David’s full life he led after moving from Mission. Due to the distance, I only saw him three times afterward. Our family is very precious to me, and I’m happy to know he has children and grandchildren to carry on. My memories are mainly of playing together — baseball, hide-and-seek, etc. I’m so glad I’ll see him in Heaven someday!

Lucinda Wright Cheshier says:

The memorial service was perfect for David. Our heartfelt thanks to all for your thoughts, prayers,tributes and words of comfort during this difficult time. I already miss his weekly phone calls… He always ended with “All right, be good!”

The memorial service on 8-13-14 at Custer Road UMC in David’s honor was beautiful. Our thanks to Rev. Jack Gibson for a service that was just perfect for our son, David Wright.
