Marvin D. Wright
January 15, 1949 – November 27, 2019
Marvin Dale Wright, 70, passed away on November 27, 2019 in Bentonville. He was born on January 15, 1949 in Beaver, Oklahoma to the late David E. and Edna L. (Arnold) Wright.

He worked 28 years for Crane Company and 13 years at Kennametal, both in Rogers. After retiring in 2014, he was able to spend more time enjoying the things he loved, like spending time with his family and especially playing with his granddaughters and going to their activities. Marvin was also an avid sports fan, but his favorites were football and baseball. He didn’t mind watching the games on TV, but attending the games was always a highlight.

Wright and Linda of Bentonville and Robert A. Wright and Pat of Utah; and four grandchildren, Chloe and Audrey Bracht and Hannah and Abigail Hinterthuer; and his aunt, Evelyn Clark.

I just found out about your loss of Marvin. Most in our Mountain Grove Class of 1967 didn’t hear of this until I posted it on our Facebook class group today. Since then, many have expressed their sorrow of his loss. Sorry we were not able to communicate our sorrow earlier. Marvin was liked by everyone and always had a friendly smile for each of us. We were so glad to see him and his wife at the 50th reunion. Several expressed how much they enjoyed visiting with him. He will be greatly missed at the next reunion.
