Mr. Wright was born in Macon on August 26, 1941, to the late Earl and Lillian Wright. He was a hard-worker all of his life and had only been retired a few years. Frank had been a farmer for a long time, spending quality time with his family harvesting and canning through the years. He also worked with Mid-State Paving for 19 years operating equipment to paint stripes on roadways. He enjoyed "scrapping," collecting treasures from others' roadside discardings and repairing them for others to continue using. He was known for fixing bicycles and distributing to kids in the neighborhood. One of Frank's favorite pastimes, though, was being the best Papaw he could be, spending time with his granddaughter, Kristin, and special nieces and nephews. He also loved fishing, forever in dire search of that sweet fishing hole. He was preceded in death by his loving and faithful wife of 38 years, Betty Jean McCommon Wright.
Left to cherish the memories of Frank are his devoted children – his son, Dale Swain of Perry, and his daughter and son-in-law, David and Dana Suiters of New Port Richey, FL; his granddaughter, Kristin Suiters; his brother-in-law, Norman McCommon, Jr.; his sisters-in-law, Reba Menard (Jean), Frances Jones, and Evelyn Wilson; his brothers, Tommy Wright and Gary Wright; and several nieces and nephews.
