WRIGHT, John – January 9, 1955 – May 25, 2010

It is with extreme sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of our beloved John at age 55. John spent 40 years in Maple Ridge before moving to Kelowna for his employment with Extra Foods/Real Canadian Superstore in 1994. John is survived by his loving high school sweetheart and wife Diana, three sons Gary (Jessie), Graham and Greg, his precious one year old granddaughter Ireland, his mother Edith Wright, mother and father-in-law Betty and Bill Ford and siblings Don (Gin) Wright of Kamloops, Jack Malm of Maple Ridge, June (Thor) Halvorson of Squamish, sisters-in-law Kathy (Gary) Pring and Brenda (Phil) Van Loo and many nieces and nephews all of Maple Ridge. Sadly John was predeceased by his father Harry George Wright. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, June 5, 2010 at 1:00 pm at 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. Flowers graciously declined, instead please perform a random act of kindness in John’s memory. John loved life to the fullest. He enjoyed travelling, camping, fishing, sports – he was coach to many of his sons’ sports teams. But his greatest love was his family. A dedicated family man who will be missed by all. We’re sure gonna miss ya! Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
