Robert A. Wright

June 15, 1950 - March 22, 1999

Robert A. Wright, 48, of Lawrence Street, Mishawaka, Ind., died on Monday, March 22, at his residence.

He was born in Mishawaka on June 15, 1950, and had lived in this area all of his life. He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert A. and Audrey (Myers) Wright.

Robert worked as an electrician for 27 years and was currently employed at Noetzel Enterprises Incorporated of South Bend, Ind., as a production manager.

He was a 1969 graduate of Mishawaka High School, a member of I.B.E.W. Local 1392, the Diloreto Club and the Mishawaka Eagles.

Robert married Cheryl Young in Mishawaka on Aug. 29, 1970. She survives. He is also survived by two daughters, Jennifer (Jon) Crutchfield of Canton, Mich., Tara Wright of Mishawaka and her fiancŽ, Tim Donlin; his grandson, Andrew Evan Crutchfield; a sister, Sharon Lamb of Mishawaka; and by a brother, Charles Wright of North Liberty, Ind.

Bob was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed ''taking the long way,'' especially on trips through Michigan's Upper Peninsula with his wife Cheryl. Fishing, birdwatching, and nature hikes were his favorite family activities.

A dedicated father, Bob supported both of his daughters through college. He was always available for his family and took great pride in his daughters' achievements. Most recently the addition of a grandson to the family brought Bob great joy.

Bob's many friends and family love and miss him dearly.

Friends may call from 4 to 8 p.m. today, March 24, in the Bubb Funeral Chapel North, 3910 N. Main Street, Mishawaka.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday in the funeral home, with Pastor Otis Buchan officiating. Burial will follow in Fairview Cemetery.
