Thomas Edward Wright, 62, loving husband, and wonderful father, of Lake Isabella Calif., passed away March 18, 2017, with his wife Kelly and daughter Samantha by his side.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Mary Wright and is survived by his wife Kelly, daughter Samantha, son Eric, brothers James and Fred, sisters Susan and Bonnie and many nieces and nephews.
Tom was an avid pilot and really enjoyed working on anything mechanical. One of his true joys wasmining Randsburg with the “old man,” his father.
In his lifetime, Tom had many different jobs, but none of them gave him as much joy as being a Respiratory Therapist. He worked for Kern Valley Hospital from 1988 to 2011, which allowed him to pursue his great passion, helping others.
In 2013, Tom was diagnosed with brain cancer; he never gave up the fight for four years.
His Celebration of Life will be held at Highland Chapel United Methodist Church, 5301 Lake Isabella Blvd., on April 1, at 2:00 p.m. Go Hawaiian or wear bright colors. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Cancer Society.
