Kim James Wright was born April 26, 1962. He passed away on July 22, 2018, at the age of 56. Kim was born in Plattsburgh, New York, to James Cecil and Mona Faye (White) Wright.
Kim moved to this area in 2000 from the East Coast. He fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness of this place. Along the way he met several people he came to care deeply for: Keith, Dean, Sherrie, Bob, Tom, Cory, Midge, Charity, Johnnie, Pops, to name a few.
He worked mechanics mostly but did other odd jobs between LaVerkin and Hurricane. Kim was content to be “in the day” living a simple, easy life. Tangible items were never that important; as often as he was given, he gave. If he moved, I’d ask him, “Where’s your coffee pot or dishes or table?” “Oh, that little family moving in, they don’t have anything, I just left it for them.” That was Kim.
Probably his favorite place here was the mountain, there the stress would seem to dissolve; simple, easy, campfires, that was Kim.
Kim served his country in the Army National Guard. Thanks, Bud, for your service.
When hearts “break,” eagles “fly.” Fly high, Brother. In your words, “God speed.”
