Reini Lewis WRIGHT


WRIGHT

Reini Lewis Wright of Bluffton, Alberta passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, Red Deer on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at the age of 63 years. Reini was born on September 30, 1950 in Grande Prairie, Alberta. At only nine months old, Reini weighed in at a healthy 28 pounds, and he retained his bear-like figure his whole life, which earned him the nickname, “Bear”. He moved with his family to the Bluffton area in 1962, and called it home the remainder of his life. Reini was united in marriage to Donna in 1984, and became a father to three children:Trent, Jen and Scott. Over the next 30 years, he spent his time farming and driving truck from the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, and everywhere in between. In Reini’s later years, his priorities shifted to include spending time with his grandchildren. Reini’s friends and family could always count on his regular phone calls and visits over coffee to catch up and hear about his latest adventure. He will be greatly missed. Reini will be lovingly remembered by his son, Scott (Charmen) Wright and their daughter, Trenna all of Sturgeon County, Alberta; and his daughter, Jen (Rick) Dore and their son, Evan all of Red Deer; as well as Trent’s children and their mother, Ty, Kailyn and Terri Mullen all of Sherwood Park. He will also be lovingly remembered by his brother, Terry Wright of Ponoka; and his sister, Twyla Hauck of Rimbey; in addition to numerous other relatives and many cherished friends. Reini was predeceased by his parents, Retta and Ralph Wright; his beloved wife, Donna in 2008; and his son, Trent in 2010. A Public Funeral Service in Honour of Reini’s Life was held at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre, Rimbey on Friday, March 7, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. with the Reverend Mark Schultz officiating. Interment followed in the Forest Home Cemetery, Ponoka at 3:30 p.m. If friends desire, memorial tributes in Reini’s Memory may be made directly to the Lung Association – Alberta and NWT, PO Box 4500 Station South, Edmonton, Alberta T6E 6K2; or to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, c/o Cross Cancer Institute, 11560 University Avenue N.W., Edmonton, Alberta T6G 1Z2.
