Clifford Wright, Jr. Life and Times

Drill Sergeant Clifford Wright, Jr., a stalwart and beloved figure, passed away peacefully on March 9, 2024, surrounded by the love of his family in his beloved community of Headland, Alabama. Born in his hometown of Dothan, Alabama on January 14, 1952, Clifford was a son of the late Clifford "JC" Wright and Lizzie Thomas Wright, his life was a testament to the values of dedication, service, and family.

Clifford's journey through life was one of unwavering commitment and love. On December 17, 1971, he was united in Holy Matrimony to his cherished wife: Mrs. Annie Wright, in Georgia. Their union was blessed with a beautiful family, including his children: Mario (Allison) Jones, Clifford (Amy) Wright, Zackery, and LaKendria; his twelve precious grandchildren: Tytianna, Dejanique, Elijah, Joshua, Xavier, Jaylin, Zachariah, Jasmine, Johanah, Johny, January, and Montoya; as well as his one great-grandchild. Clifford's legacy is also carried on by his siblings: Rosie, Terry, Willie, and Christopher, alongside a host of aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and cousins. His beloved dog Missy, who was affectionately known as his baby, will miss his warm presence dearly.

A proud Drill Sergeant in the United States Army, Clifford served his country with honor and distinction. His dedication to duty was matched only by his commitment to his fellow soldiers and the community he so dearly loved. Clifford's service was not just a career; it was a calling that he answered with pride and excellence.

Beyond his military achievements, Clifford was a man of many interests and talents. His outgoing nature and sense of humor were infectious, and he had a remarkable ability to make everyone around him laugh. Clifford was an avid fisherman, often spending time with his uncles: Billy, Matt, and Buddy, where he found peace and solace in the simple pleasures of life. When he wasn't by the water, he could be found tinkering with anything he could get his hands on, a testament to his hands-on approach to life and love of problem-solving.

Above all, Clifford's family was the centerpiece of his world. His love for his wife and children was the guiding force of his life, and his devotion to them was boundless. He had the unique ability to light up a room with his presence, and his passion for his family was evident in every action he took.

A quote that captures the essence of Clifford's approach to life comes from Helen Keller: "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." Clifford lived by these words, touching the hearts of all who knew him with his warmth, generosity, and spirited character.

As we bid farewell to Drill Sergeant Clifford Wright, Jr., we honor a man who lived a life full of purpose and love. His impact on the lives of those he touched will be felt for generations to come, and his memory will be cherished in the hearts of his loved ones forever. Clifford's departure leaves behind a legacy of courage, kindness, and laughter—a legacy that will never be forgotten.
