WRIGHT, William Hale - I755
Memories of William Hale Wright
He was generous, too generous, but we loved him for his random acts of generosity, taking the family to the theme park, out to a restaurant and even on a 30 day tour around America in 1976. I know he personally paid for over 30 people to go on overseas holidays as well.
Often, I would sit and talk at night while 'waxing up the dentures' in his laboratory. At these times he would share his words of wisdom and stories about people, how to judge character and then we just sat in silence, happy to be father and daughter at work together in harmony.
Work. Yes, he worked hard, very hard, too hard, even to the day he died.
Golf, a brilliant player, many holes in one and he played off a zero handicap for over 30 years. We children sort of grew up around golf courses as well and were so proud of his bounty of silver trophies, trays, glassware and newspaper photo clippings.
Life was never still or quiet with Dad around. He was building boats, fixing cars, visiting people, making dentures or planning the next holiday or house to build.
As his daughter, I loved him the most, argued with him the most and appreciated him the most. On the day of his passing, I was there. I prayed him into the Kingdom and ministered to him with love, as did my son Dean.
So, William Hale Wright, you surely lived a full and amazing life, helping many and achieving much. May our Lord bless and keep your spirit and heart in His Kingdom and may your strong and pure strength of character and wisdom gained from the earth be passed on to your children's children and even to the seventh generation.
