He was born on April 5, 1938 in Charlotte, North Carolina the son of Donald B. and Rose (Carroll) Wright. Don graduated from Conneaut High School. He served honorably in the Ohio National Guard, C Company.
Don was a machinist by trade, and was passionate about building guns, making knifes and doing leathercraft. He enjoyed helping others with their gun projects, a broken chain saw or getting a snow mobile to run. Don enjoyed visiting with friends and family at the home, where it was never a dull moment. He also loved to fish, although not a hunter, he was always willing to assist with harvesting a deer that his family and friends would bring to him.
He was a member of the First Congregational United Church of Christ and was a life member of the NRA.
Don is survived by his children, Rosanne (Joseph) Spaulding, Tammy Wright, Donald "Ozzy" (Melissa Wright) Wright; grandchildren, Rose McKenna Wright-Hampshire and Samantha Mae Wright; and his twin brothers, Walter (Judith) and Mason Wright.
