Thomas “Tom” Wright of South Charleston, born January 28, 1938, son of Scott T. and Freda Wright, ran to Jesus on January 2, 2011 surrounded by family and friends after a short illness at Thomas Hospital.

Tom graduated from South Charleston High School, class of 1956. He was an avid hunter, recently taking a trophy Moose in Canada, diehard fisherman, best pancake maker (according to his grandkids), passionate follower of Jesus, dedicated husband and loving father and Pawpaw. Tom was actively involved in ministry at God’s Tabernacle of Praise in South Charleston where he introduced every person to Christ with his hugs as they entered the building. He retired from Pepsi Cola after 29 years serving as a driver, route manager, and supervisor.

Tom is survived by his loving wife of 50 years Sandra, daughter Cathi (Fred) Whaples (THE VILLAGE CHURCH PASTOR FAMILY), son Tommy (Angie) Wright, seven grandkids who will miss him terribly (Beth, Allen, Bobby, Andrew, Elaina, Brady, and Lydia), one great granddaughter Aubrey, beloved “adopted” son Billy (Sheila) and “adopted” grandkids Robbie and Amanda, brother Edward (Sue) Wright, sisters Mary (Carl) Holdren and Stella Mae Thurston, and step sister Shirley Holdren.
