Kirk Jack Wright (born February 12, 1977) grew up in Springville, UT, and at an early age, started driving and working on trucks, motorcycles, and just about anything with a motor. He served an LDS mission to Spokane, WA, and later moved there, where he met his wife, Alana. They were married in the Seattle LDS temple in June 1998. Over the next several years, Jack (as he was known after high school) managed or owned moving and freight businesses in Spokane, Seattle, Salt Lake City, and Los Angeles. During those same years, three amazing children – Andrew, Brooke, and Turner – joined the Wright family. In 2008, they moved to Texas, and Jack began to endure the crushing attack of the antibiotic-resistant MRSA bacteria. On March 1, 2011, after many hospitalizations and much suffering, he passed away. Friends and family remember him as “larger than life”, an “old soul”, and “wise beyond his years”, but at age 34, he was too young to leave us, and we miss him tremendously.

This site is intended as a collection of memories and stories both for friends to smile and remember, and for his children in the future. We want them to understand what he was really like. For that, we need to you share your memories and stories. If you want to be notified when new stories and memories are posted, you can subscribe to the site feed (if you know what a feed is), or subscribe by email. Thank you for helping us remember and honor him.

Josh Bancroft, CuratorI’m Josh Bancroft, and I created and curate this site. Jack and I were best friends since high school, and he became a brother to me. Being a web nerd, I thought a living online memorial like this would be a good way to honor him, and help his kids get to know him better.
