Floyd Wright, 1943-2019

Floyd Dale Wright passed away June 30, 2019.

He was born the middle child of Floyd M. and Alice Wright on Sept. 5, 1943. He roamed a lot in his younger years but spent most of his childhood in Moab, Utah. While roaming he mined gold and uranium all over the Southwest. He joined the Air Force and served until July of 1962. He worked at Texas Gulf Potash in Moab and later in life he was the proud owner of FD Wright Drilling in Lovelock, Nevada, until his retirement.

He loved family, hunting and fishing. He was able to spin tall tales that always got a laugh at the end. He had quick wit and used it whenever he could. He never met someone that he didn’t count as a friend, and he trusted people to a fault. There was never a time that he didn’t greet you with a smile and he was always happy to see you. When he asked how you were, it wasn’t just a traditional conversational question, he truly cared about you.

Dale was a planner and a dreamer. He always had some project he wanted to do or was in the middle of. He rarely boasted about his time in the military, but he was proud to have served his country.

His wife of 42 years, Laura, and children, Crystal Tackett, Melody Dubois, Wyland Wright, and Floyd Wright survive him. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Brandon Bellows, Matthew Bellows, Steven Neese, Corey Neese, Chance Bellows, Eva Bellows, Ayden Bellows, Aurora Neese, Ella Neese, Landon Moralez, Austin Paris-Wright, Bailey Wright and Dawson Wright will miss him.

He would be proud that his bloodline runs deep.

A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Aug. 9 at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 14 Veterans Way in Fernley, Nevada.
