Bob R. Wright
March 5, 1933 - December 16, 2019
FORT WORTH - Bob R. Wright passed away peacefully on December 16, 2019.
Bob was born on the farm of Jesse and Edna Carlisle Wright in Polk County, Texas on March 5, 1933. He met Nancy at school in Livingston, Texas and they would spend the rest of their lives in loving devotion to one another.
Bob was a graduate of Texas A&M University (Class of '55) and a proud member of the Corp of Cadets. He enjoyed a long and successful career as VP of the Agricultural Loan Department at the former Fort Worth National Bank. Upon retirement, Bob found rewarding
work serving as a Sunday School Director, heading the Church Finance Committee, and volunteering at the Mission House at University Baptist Church, Fort Worth.
Bob inherited a love of ranching from his East Texas roots and enjoyed being a part of the ranching community, whether serving on the Board of the Texas Cattle Raisers Association, as a Superintendent for the TCU Collegiate Livestock Judging, as a Director
of the Fort Worth Southwestern Exposition Livestock Show and Rodeo, or out on the land west of Fort Worth with his own herd of cattle.
Survivors: Wife of 64 years, Nancy Davis Wright; children, Karan Hamilton and Robert Wright; grandchildren, Mark Hamilton and Rachel Hamilton; sister, Virginia (Ginger) Baker; and a host of loving friends and church family.
