William Wright, Jr. Obituary

William Wright, Jr. (Byll) Was called home to the Lord on January 23, 2024.  Born February 23, 1954, to William and Inez Wright.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his stepfather, Louis Turley.  He is survived by his wife, Kathy Cline; two sons, William Jar-Rel Wright and RaShaun Isaac Wright, Sr., their mother, Sheryl Sumpter-Wright; six grandchildren, Tahneye Smith, Sonnie Rose, Luna, William Jar-Rel, Jr., RaShaun, Jr. and two great grandchildren, Zakari and Mya.

Byll was always a man of great faith and was baptized at the age of thirteen at Morning Star Baptist Church.  He attended Glenville High School and graduated in January 1971.  He found his passion for music in high school and played woodwinds in both the marching band and orchestra.  Music was one of his great loves and he continued to play throughout his life.  He was a band member of Stone Creation and Kinsman Dazz.  He later played with the legendary Robert Lockwood, Jr.  Byll had many interests in addition to music.  He was an avid student of Martial Arts studying under Master Robert Baker, and those who knew Byll know that he loved his cars.

Byll worked as an electrician at LTV Steel for 34 years and retired from Arcelor Mittal in 2011.

Byll was a big personality and will be missed by those that loved him.  The family would like to thank all those that have been a part of his life.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Malachi House who cared for his beloved mother before her passing.
