Kingston - George Edward Wright 74, of Kingston, Oklahoma passed away Friday, January 15, 2021 at his home. He was born on February 17, 1946 in Salem, Illinois to the late Edgar Wright and Helen Steen Wright. George was raised in Healdton, Oklahoma and graduated from Healdton High School in 1964 and later attended East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma.

In 1975 they made their home in Healdton and later moving to Kingston in 2014 where he worked for the Kingston Schools for seven years. George was the most patient, caring, devoted husband, dad and grandfather and would do anything for his family from changing light bulbs to changing the oil in our cars. He never missed a softball game of his daughters and spent endless hours with them practicing in the back yard and going to lessons. Later when he had grandchildren, he loved attending their activities and having them around. George would beam with pride when talking about their accomplishments.
