Dr. Wright performed two life-saving surgeries on my Amazon parrot, Cesar. He and Marlene teamed up to provide excellent care to Cesar and Riley, my cockatiel. We will miss him greatly.

I was so shocked and very very sad when I heard about Dr. Wright's passing. There are people you meet that just absolutely amaze you and leave a huge impression from the day you meet them and Dr. Wright certainly did this. I only knew him for about 7 months but from the time I met him he impressed me. One of my guinea pigs got very sick and he fit him into his busy schedule, did surgery and took great care of him. Not too long after I was leaving for vacation and was worried about my little baby and Dr. Wright said he and Marlene would take care of him and another one of my guinea pigs while I was gone. I don't think he and Marlene ever knew how much that meant to me. I was able to go on vacation and know that my babies were in good hands. As time went on Snuggles began to have more and more issues and Dr. Wright would always make time to see him. He would come to my office or meet me at Piggie Poo and I would always wind up asking him tons of questions and he always answered every single one. He would then share stories with me or things he learned and I was always amazed at the enormous amount of knowledge this man had. We would then somehow wind up being silly and laughing until I was crying. This man was not only the most compassionate person I've ever met he was just so genuinely nice. His love for Marlene was tremendous and very apparent as his face always lit up when he talked about her. It was very clear that she was the most important thing to him and I always admired that. I learned so much from him and made sure to tell him how grateful I was that he came into my life. Dr. Wright's passing is a huge loss to everyone that knew him. He was only here a short time but certainly touched and saved so many little precious lives. There are not enough words to express how much he will be missed.

I have known Dr. Wright for many years, he was the only one I would trust to take our rats and rabbits too. The world has lost the best vet ever and also a wonderful human being. :( Jodi Page

Sadly, Kevin and I were merely acquaintances. We would see each other occasionally at zoo conferences or briefly talk business on the phone. I thoroughly enjoyed each chat and every encounter. He was the most eccentric and charismatic character I have ever met. I envy all of you that knew him well enough to call him friend and my heartfelt condolences go out to all of you.

We knew Kevin for only a few short months and yet he made a lifelong impression. Kevin treated several of our Guinea Pigs and saved their lives and improved their quality of life. But beyond that he was such a dear, modest, real and decent person. Our hearts are very heavy and sad for the loss to the veteniary world and especially to Marlene, whom he spoke glowingly of, but we have not met. We are grateful to have known him the short time we did and our "piggies" are still thriving.

When my little gerbil, Mientje, was sick Dr Wright came almost every week to check on her and adjust her medication. Sometimes Marlene would accompany him. And then when I was sick they took care of Mientje for me. At the end of her life, he and Marlene were there - thanks to them Mientje's suffering was ended and her end very quick and peaceful. Without realizing it I really counted on him to be there if my pets needed anything. I also looked forward to his visits and his enthusiastic stories about his many interests. My gerbils and I will really miss him.

Our deepest condolences to Dr. Wright's family and friends. Your kindness toward our 4 bunnies and incredible support through their illnesses touched our hearts. You will be missed.

Kevin, I was always confident that if my many amphibians became ill, you were there. So many times you helped me with my frogs or toads and I learned so much from you too. Thank you so much. Now there is a huge void that you used to fill and I and the frogs and toads will miss you terribly. I have so many memories from the time I met you at University Hospital right up to your mobile practice.You were a kind, compassionate, funny, incredibly knowledgeable and generous person and our herp community has lost a great friend and advocate. Perhaps you were needed in heaven for all the animals that went before you. I am so sad that you have left us. Peace to you good friend.

I offer my sincere condolences to Marlene. I heard many stories of how you two would go frog hunting at night. Very few wives would consider that spending quality time with their husbands. LOL I live in upstate NY and not many vets would accept amphibians as patients. Once in a while I would find a vet who knew nothing about treating sick amphibians but would be wiilling to care for one of my 50 plus frogs and take direction from Kevin via email . Kevin was so generous like that, and he helped me out like that on many occasions. He must have been inundated with emails from panic-stricken amphibian owners who didn't know where to turn for help for a sick toad or frog. I learned how to stand out among the competition for his attention by coming up with the most shocking and catchy phrases for the subject line of my emails. Subject lines like "MYSTERIOUS DISEASE CAUSES FROG TO OOZE BLOOD FROM HIS SKIN. They were always true, but my graphic descriptions must have piqued his curiosity because he always got back to me. Kevin gave careful instructions to my local vet and received nothing in return except the satusfaction of knowing that one of God's very sick creatures was getting the best care possible short of being fortunate enough to live in close proximity to Kevin Wright. I did have the opportunity to take Kevin out the lunch a few years back when I visited my dear friend and fellow amphibian lover, Carole Tobey, who lives in Scottsdale. The world has lost a brilliant, compassionate man. No one will ever take his place. Rest in peace, my friend, and God bless you, Marlene. I pray that God will comfort your heart and help you at this difficult time. Marilyn LeGrand

good bye dear friend. At least you got to meet Jax and convinced me to get my vet tech degree before you passed.
