Welcome to the Retiree's of Alameda County Fire Department.
Jim Wright Passes
Retired Engineer from Castro Valley
I just received the e-mail below. It is from Jim Wright's wife. Jim was a retired engineer from Castro Valley. Until a couple months ago a number of us met once each month for lunch in Tracy. Jim was a great guy to work with. He will be missed.
Please pass on this information.
It saddens me to inform you Jim passed away this morning. (April 1)
The past couple of weeks there were some very serious setbacks and he was to the point where he was to weak to continue to go on.
Thank you for your loyal friendship to Jim. I know your friendship meant a lot to him as you all were an important part of his life.
James E. Wright JR., retired in 1989 after 25 years of service from the Castro Valley Fire Department.
Jim was a resident of San Leandro, Castro Valley and Modesto, CA. He passed away the morning of April 1, 2014 at the age of 78, from complications of a stroke in which he suffered in February.
Jim is survived by his wife Linda. He is also survived by his two children: son Matthew Wright (Liz), daughter Beth Wright-McCarty (Joel) and step-daughter Stacy Farquhar, grand children Michael Spring, Casey Wright, Ryan Farquhar and Ricky Truckner.
Jim requested that no services be held. Interment will be in the Mt. View Cemetery Mausoleum, Oakland, CA.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Children's Hospital Research or your charity of choice.
I got a call from Ray's friend Saunie. Ray fell and hit his head and is now in a nursing home. He is recouperating, but now has a bladder infection that is leaving him a little incoherant. I thought the guys might send him get well wishes, or if in the area might want to stop by for a visit. He is at the Golden Empire Nursing & Rehab, 121 Dorsey Dr., Grass Valley, Ca., 95945.
