March 5, 1952 - August 4, 2018
William Alan Wright was born March 5, 1952 in Traverse City, Michigan to Alan and Rita Ockert Wright. As local festival fireworks illuminated the sky on Saturday, August 4, 2018, he passed from this world to find his place in heaven after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 66 years old. He graduated from Kingsley High School and received advanced degrees from Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan Universities. The majority of his career was in public finance in the educational setting and consulting. He served as assistant superintendent for finance and administrative services at Lenawee Intermediate School District, several public school finance directors, and as a consultant for Plante Moran. In retirement, he became an avid cyclist, upland bird hunter, fly fisherman, and enjoyed an occasional round of golf. Futures trading added to his cerebral interests. William (Bill) leaves his wife, Marcia, a son Aaron, Ann Arbor, MI two stepchildren-Zachary Compton, Chicago, Illinois and Jennifer Compton, Adrian, MI , his mother Rita Wright, Kingsley, MI , a sister, Carolyn (James) Kik, Honor, MI and two brothers, Samuel (Cathy) Wright, Caledonia, MI and Thomas (Robine) Wright, Springfield, Ohio along with many nieces and nephews.
