Former Ohio resident Wayne Eugene Wright, 67, passed from this life unexpectedly June 10, 2018, in Lebanon, Tennessee.
Wayne was born May 18, 1951, in Hamilton, Ohio.
Recently retired from Square D/Schneider Electric where he worked more than 45 years as a Manufacturing Engineer. He was known by many as a gentle giant, a simple man and a kind soul that never met a stranger. He was a good listener and a great friend. He was a lover of muscle cars and known for his incredible fashion sense (suspenders, a flannel jacket and oversized blue jeans). He welcomed all into his home and into his heart. He and his wife, Hilde, met sharing their love of horses and eventually goats. After retirement, Wayne could often be found sitting amongst their herd of Boer Goats in a pasture on their farm solving the problems of the world.
He is survived by his wife of 15 years, Hilde, 5 siblings and a loving extended family.
At his request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Sellars Funeral Home, Lebanon TN, 615.444.9393.
