Clifford Olen Wright Obituary
Clifford Olen Wright May 8, 1922 - September 6, 2013 Clifford was born May 8, 1922, in Melrose, New Mexico. He passed September 6, 2013, at the age of 91, in Bakersfield. He was preceded in death by his brother, Roy; and two sisters, Ollie and Thelma. Clifford met and married the love of his life, Frances V. Miller, on May 12 in Portales, New Mexico. They moved back to Bakersfield in November 2009. They were married nearly 70 years. They had four daughters, Beverly Caetano and Fred, Olene Whitt and Tom, Carol Davidson and Alan, Connie Esmond and Mike; and two sons, Larry and Amy and Ronnie and Sally. He also leaves behind 15 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren. He had numerous loving friends and relatives in New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma, who kept him in their prayers over the last eight months. Dad worked in construction as a millwright and carpenter, which meant a lot of traveling and hard work. He thoroughly enjoyed his work and meeting new people. He loved to share stories with anyone who had time to listen. He always had a wink in his eye and a smile on his face. We will miss him but know we will see him in a better place someday. A chapel service will be held on September 13, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. at Greenlawn Southwest Memorial Chapel, 2739 Panama Lane, with visitation before the service at 9:00 a.m. Pallbearers will be his grandsons.
