Ronald Joseph Wright, 80, passed away on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 in Marana, Arizona.
He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Antonina; daughter Janie; two sons Kevin and Kyle; six grandsons and one granddaughter.
Born in Laconia, New Hampshire, he was the son of Percy and Germaine Wright. A U.S. Navy veteran and logistics manager by trade, Ron was known for his love of sports, particularly baseball. This led him to volunteer his time and knowledge as a coach for many years with Sunnyslope Little League where he led the Dodgers and Expos to a handful of championships. His generosity to the children of the community was rewarded as he lived to see his favorite professional team, the Boston Red Sox, finally win a World Series (and then a few more). In retirement, Ron’s love of travel brought him and Toni to the Philippines, Bangkok, Greece, Egypt, Rome, Paris, Venice, Jerusalem, and Portugal to name a few.
A private service was held for Ron’s family and memorial donations in lieu of flowers may be made in Ron’s name to the charity of your choice. Visit https://www.hansenmortuary.com for condolences.Print Obituary & Condolences
