It is with deepest sadness that we must announce the passing of beekeeper and writer Walter W. Wright. As many of you may know, he fell and broke his hip Saturday evening, January 30. After a successful hip replacement he was transferred to a rehabilitation facility nearby. He seemed to be recovering, but around 2AM on Saturday, February 6, his heart stopped. Despite heroic efforts by EMT and emergency room personnel, he did not recover. Walt left specific, written instructions that there be no flowers and no donations in his name. He also requested that there be no ceremony. The family will hold visitation from 11 AM to 1 PM on Monday, February 8, at Ardmore Chapel Funeral Home, 27186 E. Main St., Ardmore, Alabama, Phone: (256) 423-4100. Ardmore Chapel is just East of Ardmore at the corner of Alabama Hwy 53 and Carson Way. http://www.ardmorechapel.com/#divMap...Direction70845.
Internment will follow at 2 PM at Wright Cemetery, Hwy 64, McBurg, TN. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Wr...d024a014e36bce.
