He continued his education at University of Central Florida, completing his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering before accepting his first job in what would be a long career working for a handful of companies at Kennedy Space Center.

Later, he coached his son Jacob in baseball, football, and golf through Jacob’s time playing baseball in college. He also spent much time playing guitar and singing with bandmates and friends.
He is survived by his mother Miki, his father and stepmother Bill and Virginia “Ginny” Wright, his sister, Patty Tworkowski, his son, Jacob Wright, his nephews, Daniel and Trey Lee, his partner Patty Catrett , and Jacob’s mother Carrie Wright.
