"You know, Warren...you don't have to kick *every* dog that you pass."
- Ron Wright, just one of the uncountable times that he invested his life into others.

Ron was the most effective communicator of Christian values in an elective office that I have ever personally experienced. I miss him terribly and will continue to do so for a long, long time. And there is no doubt that I will ask myself, time and time again in the future - what would Ron do in this situation?

Ron was a true servant to the citizens of our District. He was concerned with sharing the truth whether it was popular or not. I appreciate him most when the opportunity came for my daughter Libby when he offered an internship in his DC office. He called to ask for my approval of his offering the position. This certainly was not required but it showed his compassion towards a father concerned about his daughter spending a college summer away from home in unfamiliar surroundings. I told him the decision was Libby's but that I truly appreciated his concern as one father to another. Susan demonstrated similar concerns for what was best for our family. The summer went well. It was a tremendous opportunity for Libby. And she spent it in an office that could not have been more family centric. Thank you Congressman Wright. Thank you Susan. We pray for your family.

Ron was truly a great gentleman. He always exercised his faith in tangible ways and always tried to be kind to everybody and maintained a great sense of humor. He always worked hard whether it be for his family or the public. He always tried to work with everyone despite their views. He had persistence to get things done despite his recent health issues. One favorite little joke about Ron is that he was “a bleeding heart conservative” in his efforts to help people who needed a hand. While all of us are grieving his death, we can rest assured he is at peace. May God continue to give Susan and the whole family strength to mourn, but to always cherish what a wonderful human he was.

May perpetual light shine upon him.
With love, Ralph and Pam Brotherton

Ron and Susan were our neighbors for many years. When my husband, Carrol was sent to Iraq, the Wright family checked on us and made sure my kids and I were ok. Ron would always stop to say hello even though we knew he was very busy. My son, Nolan, raked leaves at their home, and Ron would give him a big handshake and compliments for a job well done. That’s how Ron treated everyone, both young and old, with the highest respect. It was an honor to know him because he honored others with his service and kindness. He will be missed by our nation, community and family. God bless the Wright family and especially Susan, during this time. We are praying for you.
Love,
Pamela, Carrol, Nolan, Jessica Hoover, and Lauren Corder

I never got to meet Ron, but I feel like I know him and Susan well. I worked with his mother in law that loved him dearly. I got to here all about politics from her. I can say he was a terrific family man . He fought his cancer and never complained. My condolences go out to his family. Heaven just gained another Angel.

Had the pleasure and honor of meeting Mr. Wright while he was Tarrant County Tax Accessor when he visited the Haltom City Senior Center. Such a kind and personable man. He shared a power point presentation explaining so much information including homestead and over 60 exceptions before answering questions . We were all grateful to have met him and wished him well as he went on to serve in Congress. So sorry his time there was cut so short. Sending prayers to family and friends 🙏.
