Bill H. Wright II was born July 9th, 1957, in Eureka, and passed away April 8th, 2018 with his family by his side.

He enlisted into the U.S. Army and served his country during the Vietnam Era.

He was a stubborn, big-hearted man and a skilled mechanic who loved classic cars and always spoke what was on his mind. He was a grandfather, father, brother, uncle and anyone who knew him a friend.

He is survived by his son, Bill Howard Wright III; daughter, Angela Maria Louise Wright; sister, Edith Louise Root; daughter in-law, Lymari Wright; grandsons Dominic Wright and Christian Tapia; granddaughter, Destiny Wright; and other family members.

Bill believed and said that “every day was truly a new day to begin anew,” “you should never be sorry, just be yourself” and to “drive it until the wheels fall off.”

Bill will be missed but not forgotten. His memory will live on through his family and those who knew him.

Philippians 3:21 — He will take our weak and mortal bodies and change them into Glorious Bodies like His own.

A private ceremony will be held at a later date.

Arrangements are being prepared by Humboldt Cremation and funeral service in Eureka.
