Obituary

Cpl. Robert E. Wright Jr., 73, of Harrisburg, Pa. went home to be with the Lord on August 25 after battling an illness at the Hershey Med Center.

He was born January 10, 1947, in Harrisburg to Robert E Wright Sr. and Betty Grazier Wright.

Robert graduated from Lower Dauphin High School in 1966 and joined the Marine Corps after graduation. He served in Viet Nam where he was wounded, which ended his military career. He married Katherine Brandl on June 5, 1969 and they lived in the Harrisburg area for 51 years. Robert was a member of Mountain View Bible Church, The Bob Smith Detachment of the Marine Corps League, and multiple other military organizations. He was a truck driver for 15 years until he joined the Mechanicsburg Post Office where he was a letter carrier for 30 years until his retirement in 2012. He loved rifle competitions, spending time with family and friends, and reading his Bible. Robert was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Sherman F. Wright.

He is survived by his wife of the home, his daughter Malissa Fisher (Joe) of Parkesburg, his son Michael Wright (Beth) of Linglestown, his sister Victoria DeFrank of Harrisburg, five grandkids, Amanda Fisher, JJ Fisher, Coryn Fisher, Madison Wright, Robert Wright III, 5 great grandkids and numerous nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.

Services will be held Tuesday, September 1, 2020, at 11 AM at Mountain View Bible Church, 34 Sipe Ave, Hummelstown. Due to Covid restrictions burial will be family only at Fort Indiantown Gap. Viewing will be Tuesday from 10 to 11 AM in the church.
