Robert Arthur Wright

February 2nd, 1942 - March 29th, 2018

Obituary Robert (Bob) Arthur Wright of Fort Lupton, CO, passed peacefully in his home, surrounded by loved ones, on March 29, 2018. Bob was born in Palmer, Alaska on February 2, 1942, Groundhog Day, to Thomas Burl Wright and Mable Neoma (Hayes) Wright. He is preceded in death by his parents and his babies, Melody and Myles Wright. He is survived by his beloved twin sister Roberta Lee Cooke (Gaylon), and sisters Neoma Joan Scott and Lee Jordanger. As well as his wife, the love of his life, Susan Dawn Wright, and his sons, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews that he loved so very much. He was the proud father of Robby Wright (Samantha) and Adam Wright (Kristi) from his first marriage, and he was a great stepfather to Greg Glisan (Marci), Casey Kamerzell (Natasha), and Brad Kamerzell (Angel). He loved and adored his 7 grandchildren: Brandon, Chris, Matt, Jeff, Dana, C.J., and Kaylynne, and his 7 great-grandchildren. A Life Celebration for Robert Wright is planned for Sunday, April 15, from 11AM to 2PM, at J M Post Veterans Club, 104 E S 1st Street, Johnstown, CO 80534. Bob was first married in 1963. His son Robby was born in 1965, and it was around that time that he started working at Woodward in Fort Collins. He welcomed his daughter Melody in 1968, who passed from SIDS that same year. Even more heartache was suffered when his son Myles was born in 1970, with a heart defect that took him within days of being born. Adam was born in 1973. Bob was divorced in 1985. Bob was the assisting coach of a Woodward softball team when he met Susan, his soulmate. They were married on March 30, 1991, and Bob would have a hand in raising her three young sons. After 24 years at Woodward, Bob decided to part ways. He worked for a short time at Hewlett-Packard in Fort Collins, along with taking classes in Denver to become a blackjack dealer. Bob started working at Glory Hole Casino in 1992, and he and Susan moved to Black Hawk, CO, in 1993. In 1995, they moved into a beautiful home that they had built. Bob and Susan had many great years in that home. After the kids were grown, they decided to follow their dream and travel. In 2007, they sold their home and purchased a fifth wheel. They would spend the next 7 years traveling all over the United States. They went wherever they wanted and did whatever they liked. They submersed themselves into different cultures, making many friends along the way. With Susan by his side, Bob would say that those were the best years of his life. The plan was to ultimately end up in the home that they owned in Lake Havasu City, AZ. However, as grandbabies were born, and great grandbabies, and with the decline in Bob�s health, they decided to settle back in Colorado. They purchased their home in Fort Lupton in 2014. Bob�s dying wish was to be at home with his family when he passed. Susan cared for him until his very last breath, and he passed just a day shy of their 27th wedding anniversary. He was a great brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, mentor, and friend. He was the most charismatic and genuine person you would ever meet. Bob was a great man. He will be missed beyond words by so many people.
