Larry Timothy Wright

December 13, 1946 — January 30, 2020

Larry Timothy Wright was born December 13, 1946, in Richmond, CA to the late L.T. and Helen (Muse) Wright. He died Thursday, January 30, 2020 in Oklahoma City, at the age of 73 years, 1 month and 17 days. Larry and the former Ms. Kathleen E. (Kathy) Tam were married on July 18, 1967 in Pinole, CA. Their marriage caught the eye of many other couples because of the unwavering love and devotion they had for each other. Where you saw one, you saw the other.

Larry grew up in Napa and Richmond, CA, graduating from Richmond Union High School. Follow graduation, he was drafted into the U.S. Army, serving during the Vietnam Conflict. After his service to our country, Larry returned to California where he worked as steamfitter. He was member of the Steamfitters Union, Local 342 of Walnut Creek, CA.

In 1977, Larry and Kathy moved to Davis, where they raised their three daughters. For many years, he and Kathy owned and operated Sportsman’s Food Store, or better known as “Larry Wright’s”, on the east edge of Davis. During the years of owning the store, he was also employed with Halliburton of Davis. After leaving the convenience store business, Larry drove a truck for the Swift Trucking Company and later drove for Jack Cannon Trucking, hauling rock.

Larry was known to be a generous man, always helping others. He served on the Davis Fire Department for several years. One of the many enjoyments Larry had was playing Santa Claus for area schools, individual families, local nursing homes and many others. He was possibly the best helper the real Santa Claus ever had. In his spare time, he enjoyed caring for animals, watching westerns on TV and most importantly, spending time with his grandchildren.

Survivors include his loving wife, Kathy; three daughters, Tambra Wright, Desiree Wright and Lena Wright; nine grandchildren, Randy Dickinson, Jr, Styllon Wright, Taylee Dickinson, Tavis Wright, Bladen Wright, Bailer Wright, Bryndle Vails, Briar Vails, and Rory Vails; one great-grandson, Kaleb Wright; three sisters, Drenda Haseltine, Juliette Wright-Frank and Donna Harmon; as well as two brothers, Danny Lee Wright and Danny Dill.

Larry was preceded in death by his father, L.T. Wright; his mother, Helen Dill and his son, Shane Timothy Wright.

Per Larry’s request, no services will be held.
