Obituary

Robert was a decent, stand-up, devout Christian with strong core values instilled in him by his maternal grandparents Bennie and Henretta Wright. He was united in holy matrimony to the love of his life and best friend, Maggie Ann (King) Wright on July 29, 1972.  He was a God-fearing man and a member of Pilgrim Baptist Church.
