Lawrence Carl Wright – November 2, 2022

Lawrence Carl Wright, 65, died unexpectedly in the early morning hours of Wednesday, November 2, 2022, in his home in Reed’s Ferry.

Larry was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Clayton Bailey and Dorothy Leah (Ray) Wright on May 5, 1957. The family moved from Malden, Massachusetts, to Bradford, New Hampshire in his early childhood. Larry participated in Track and Field in the shot put and discus events at Kearsarge Regional High School.

He began working around the age of twelve and spent most of his life in a variety of jobs. He drove tractor trailers for many years and earned the CB handle “The Instigator” from other truckers. At the same time, he became a mechanic, working on the trucks he drove. If it moved, he could drive it, and if it had a motor, he could fix it. For a short time, he owned his own business, a mobile mechanic service. He retired in 2019 after 20 years as a truck mechanic for UPS.

He loved travel, adventure, sight-seeing, and trying new things. The White Mountains of New Hampshire were his favorite place to tent, hike, swim, and fish. Canoeing on the Saco River in Maine was a must each summer, when he would spend an entire week’s vacation camping with family and friends. He greatly enjoyed cruises in the Caribbean with “the six pack,” visiting National Parks, traveling to other countries, and he was always ready for the next trip. He enjoyed going to concerts and to the movies, and no matter where he went, he was always talking to the people around him. He was proud to say he “would try anything once.”

Larry was predeceased by his father in 1987, his mother in 2009, and his sister Nancy Ray Wright in 2020.

Larry is survived by his long-time partner, Stephanie C. Levesque of Merrimac, brother Edward C. “Rusty” Wright and wife Elizabeth Wright of Peabody, Massachusetts, brother Richard W. Wright and wife Stephanie Wright of Westford, Massachusetts, son Justin L. Wright and wife Megan Wright of Andover, New Hampshire, daughter Cassandra L. Levesque and fiance Ian Nicholas of Pownal, Maine, niece Alex Wright, niece Jennifer (Wright) Cruz and husband Jonathan Cruz, niece Erica Wright, niece Brianna Kruczynski and husband Casmir Kruczynski, and a great-nephew, Jaxson Cruz.
