wright2KALAMAZOO, Mich- A memorial service was held Saturday morning in Kalamazoo, remembering the life of Bill Wright.

The service was held at the Kalamazoo Valley Family Church.

Bill Wright passed away December 28th in his condo in Fort Myers, Florida. The exact cause of death is still unknown at this time as autopsy results are still pending.  He was only 54-year-old.

Wright became a successful business man with car dealerships in Kalamazoo and Paw Paw. He built his business with the motto “Yes We Can” and used that to end every commercial.

He also established a foundation to help needy kids in the Kalamazoo area and would openly speak about his very difficult childhood.

His business partner, Mike Seelye , says in a statement, “Obviously I have a long history with him. We have worked together and been partners for 30-plus years. So it’s shocking to me and a sad situation. It’s hard to believe that a guy who was as big as life as him is dead.”

The family of Bill Wright asks instead of sending flowers, please make a donation to Wright for Kids.
