OXFORD – John W. Wright, 63, of Rhonda Rheault Drive, died peacefully on Monday, March 25, 2024, in his home after a short illness.  He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Norma (Pouliot) Wright of Oxford; three children, Jessica Wright of Centreville, VA, Ashley Barry and her husband Jason of Worcester, and Christopher Wright and his wife Alicia of North Grosvenordale, CT; his sister, Paula Dwyer and her husband Michael of Chicago, IL; his granddaughter, Charlotte Wright of North Grosvenordale, CT; and many nieces, nephews, and friends, who were like family to him.  He will be greatly missed by his beloved dog, Miss Sadie.

He was born in Holland, son of the late John and Mary (McFarlane) Wright, Jr., and lived in Oxford for over 30 years.  He graduated from Northbridge High School in 1978 and received his bachelor’s degree from Nichols College in Dudley.

John was very proud of his work accomplishments, but his greatest pride was his children. He was currently a Project Manager at GridIron IT Solutions. He worked for Juniper Networks for several years and many other startup companies setting up their service organizations. He loved golf and was a member of Quinnatisset Country Club.  He loved to entertain in his home, was a wonderful cook and a great bartender. The night wasn’t complete until he entertained friends and family as “DJ Johnny Wright.”
