William Owen Wright, III

Our beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend took his life after a long and valiant struggle with mental illness and addiction.
While fighting his demons, he graduated from Chopticon High School in 1989, was an Eagle Scout and a member of scouts Order of the Arrow.
Later he became a Certified Addiction Counselor in California.
Billy was always a fighter for the underdog. A lover of all creatures great and small. His greatest passions were to help people recover from mental illness and addiction and his pets.
Billy loved rock music, heavy metal rock and especially loved Pink Floyd’s “Learning to Fly” and “On the Turning Away”.
He will rest in peace with his beloved dogs, Buddy THE Dog, and Abby Normal. He also joins Kitty the Cat.
He had a great sense of humor and was very, very smart, and a cute guy!
We will forever miss him, and hope he is flying peaceful and free.
If you or loved ones struggle with these issues, please reach out for help, and for those of us without these demons, educate yourself, be patient, kind and compassionate and above all loving.
Services will be private.
