He was the son of Boyd and Jimmie Ann Wright. He was joined in marriage by Fayann Penkert on April 30, 1976.
He graduated from San Angelo Central High School in 1970. He spent 4 ½ years in the United States Marine Corps. He retired from Runnels County Precinct 4 after 26 years. Over the last 10 years, he enjoyed woodworking and crafting handmade pieces out of mesquite for Lipan Creek Mesquite. He loved going to the trade shows selling his pieces and visiting with everyone that stopped by. He was definitely a salesman and a character. He enjoyed helping Santa Clause visiting both old and young during the holidays, varmit hunting with his buddy Mike, scratching lottery tickets, watching his granddaughters play sports, teasing and bothering his family, and most off all going to Walt Disney World with his family and Robin’s travel agent friends. He was a member of the Miles First Baptist Church where he was involved with the youth group for several years.
He was preceded in death by his father Boyd Wright, step-father Harold Mathis, and sister Ann Harp.
Randy was survived by his wife of 43 years Fayann, his son Chris Blackwell and wife Charla; daughter Robin Wright; and very special granddaughters Britnee Counts and Cora Blackwell; mother Jimmie Ann Mathis; brother Roger Wright (Linda), sister Nancy Arnold (Freddie), brother Craig Mathis (Phyllis), and brother-in-law Terry Penkert, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
He will be greatly missed by all of the people he picked on at the grocery store, had coffee with in Mereta, and most of all his family.
A visitation will be held at Miles United Methodist Church Saturday, October 12, 2019 from 10:00-10:45 AM. The service will follow at 11:00 AM. A celebration will follow at Weatherby Hall in Miles.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Miles Museum, Miles United Methodist Church, or Interim Hospice Care.
The family would like to thank Robin’s co-workers, the girls from Coasters and Castles Travel, as well as family and friends who made his last trip to Walt Disney World possible.
