On Monday, November 21, 2016, John Wayne Wright, our precious husband, father and grandfather was called home into our Savior's loving arms at the age of 76 years. Wayne was preceded in death by his father, and leaves behind his loving wife, his children Wendy & Tony Kinkade, Gary & Jennifer Wright, Cheryl Wright, and grandchildren Ryan, Hannah & Jacob Kinkade; Corlan, Graham and Adalynn Wright, as well as his mother and his sister, Patricia Ann Adams.

Wayne was born in Dallas, TX, to Wanda Jocelyn (Crumpton) and John Harrison Wright. He graduated from W. W. Samuel High School and married his high school sweetheart, Rita Faye Samford, while earning his Business degree from North Texas State University. He joined the Army in 1966, where he served for 4 years in the Transportation Corps and received an honorable discharge as a 1st Lieutenant. He worked for Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. until 1982, when he moved his family to San Antonio to open a Goodyear franchise. As a Goodyear dealer, he could be counted on to help neighbors and friends in times of need.

Wayne loved cars, especially Corvettes, earning Top Flight classification for restoration of his 1965 Stingray. Later, as a real estate agent, he preferred to do minor repairs himself as a service to his clients. He was a deacon at Crestview Baptist Church for many years, and loved the Lord. He enjoyed being "PaPa" to his grandchildren, playing cards with family and friends, and visiting his friend, Doyle, for coffee in the mornings.

He was the best husband, father and grandfather we could have asked for, and he will be desperately missed.
