I was lucky to have known Kevin. He always made me smile, even when I didn't want to. He was a good friend and a good person in general. He made the world a better place and will be missed by all who knew him. Gone too early.
Kevin Wright was a true man. He was a very caring person that loved his family.. I have many fond memories with Kevin, but one of my favorites was racing a go cart with him. He lapped me 3 times in 10 laps!! Mitzi was a witness. Then the 3 of us went out for a very nice dinner.. I could go on and on! He will never be forgotten!!!
A sweet friendship refreshes the soul (Proverbs 27:9) and that's what you did. You were a true friend for so many years and even when we went without seeing each other, when we all got together, it was if no time had passed and you loved the same. Your sincere honesty made you a gem. Your jokes and sarcasm made you a delight. Your love and dedication to my friend made you my hero. You will truly be missed. Prayers for comfort, peace and strength for Mitzi, Lucy, David and the rest of Kevin's family and friends.
The Scripture says "Iron sharpens iron"; and Kevin was one of my "sharpeners". One area he sharpened very well in was "keeping it real" - no hypocrisy. I will miss keeping it real with Kevin Wright...love you Mitzi, much grace to you and David and Lucie.
Mitzi, Lucy, David and family, know your pain at this loss is shared by many. I can see his grin and smile as I rejoice with the knowledge that one day we will be together again. Sending much love, hugs and prayers for family and friends in this time.

Kevin you were my guardian angel and the best neighbor I ever had. Thank you for watching out for me. You were loved and will be missed terribly. My prayers go out to Mitzi and may God embrace her with love and peace until you meet again in heaven. ♥️🕯 🙏🏼

I have many memories of Kevin from 25 years ago when we lived and worked together in Knoxville. Kevin watched me go through the process of becoming a Christian! From working in a strip bar to accepting Christ, he never judged me...rather he supported my decision. Kevin went to my first Watercraft race with me and video taped me doing a prayer, (my first prayer), for the riders meeting. I’m saddened by his loss. I’m praying for Mitzi and his family. God bless.
Lucie, David, Mitzi We are so sorry about Kevin's sudden and unexpected passing. Our thoughts are with all of you.
Kevin was a kind and amazing man. He was the love of my best buddies life. So thankful for his love for our Mitzi. Praying peace for the family and Mitzi. He is in Gods hands free of pain. ❤️
My dear friend. I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
So very sorry for your loss, keeping all in our thoughts and prayers ❤🙏❤🙏. Love, Pat and Patty
Mitzi and family, I am so incredibly sorry for your heartbreak. I didn’t know Kevin well, but I could always tell how in love that he and Mitzi were and he was so kind every time I was around him. I know it can be so hard to understand why someone is taken from this life before we are ready, but he is rejoicing with Jesus!
Mitzi, Lucie, David, Phyllis, Savannah, Andrew - we are so, so sorry for your loss and our hearts are breaking for you all. Kevin was always full of fun and mischief. We'll always remember his smile!
You're all in our prayers. Mike & Karen
It is not right to lose someone who you held as a baby. He was a little kid running around when I was already a “grownup” college kid. But, he was always somewhere around. Just like a few weeks ago when we were on Facebook arguing....he was around. He will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace, Cuz.
I will never forget you. You are one of the few men that shaped my life growing up. I always watched how you loved Mitzi, and your loyalty to family. One of the greatest men I know. I can’t believe I won’t get to laugh with you again. Miss you so much!
