SGT George Marshall Wright

October 16, 1990 — January 6, 2024

San Antonio, Texas 78239

 

     George Marshall Wright went to be with the Lord on January 6, 2024, in San Antonio, Texas, after complications from his battle against cancer. George was a dearly beloved husband, father,

son, brother, and friend. George was born to Thomas William Wright and Linda Katherine Ruff Wright on October 16, 1990, in Fairborn, Ohio. George’s parents loved him dearly and recognized him as unique, even from a very early age. When George was in fifth grade, he was selected to represent the United States as a “People to People Student Ambassador,” and through that program, George traveled to over 13 countries. He was selected to be a representative at the inauguration of President Barack Obama. George was very well-rounded and exceptionally intelligent. He always excelled academically, and in middle school, he won writing contests and had one of his paintings selected to be displayed at the Springfield, Ohio, Art Gallery.

    

     One of George’s many passions was the sport of hockey, and he served as the goalie of his high school hockey team. George had a passion for flying, and after high school, he studied at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and received both his commercial and private helicopter licenses.

 On January 7, 2014, George married Kristen Lynn Beccue and, at the same time, gained a stepson, Brayden Michael Beccue. They later welcomed Samuel Thomas in 2016, Gracelynn Diane in 2018, and Tobias William in 2021. George was passionate about the sanctity

of life and worked for Focus on the Family before joining the United States Army in 2016. George was deeply honored to serve our great nation and was blessed to form many friendships with fellow service members. He was very humbled and proud to receive several medals throughout his time of service. On August 30, 2023, he received his dual Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Networking and Cybersecurity and Legal Studies. George indeed was a great thinker and was innovative, creative, and an excellent problem solver.

He was analytical in nature, was always looking to find ways to improve anything, and was never at a shortage of ideas. George was a man of many passions, including all things technology, board games, the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals, hockey, helicopters, motorcycles, electric vehicles, gourmet cooking, traveling, hunting, fishing, the Disney Character Goofy, and most recently, Ratatouille. He dearly loved his family and especially enjoyed family vacations to

Disney World and cruises together. George enjoyed spoiling his family and rented out a spa for Gracelynn’s fifth birthday was for a daddy-daughter date to remember, and he recently ordered a limousine to pick his family up from the airport.

 

      Above all, though, George loved the Lord and was a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. On July 22 of this year, George publicly proclaimed his faith and trust in Jesus through his water baptism and, at the same time, was also able to baptize two of his sons, which he considered to be a tremendous honor.

 

In January of 2022, George was diagnosed with cancer. He fought courageously and valiantly, and until his final breath, he never gave up. He was a great example of toughness, perseverance,

and continuous faith in God. Even in tremendous pain, George fought through it, clung to the Lord, and lived each day to its fullest.

George was predeceased by his father, Thomas, and his grandparents, George F., and Evelyn (Matthews) Ruff, and Brooks and Cora (Dumford) Wright. He is survived by many who love him, including Kristen and their four children, Brayden (12), Samuel (7), Gracelynn (5), and Tobias (3), his mother, Linda, his sister, Heather Anderson (Steve) and nephew Jacob Anderson, his mother-in-law, Deana Nutter, and her parents, Vernon B and Joanie Nutter.  In addition, he leaves many cousins and an extended network of family and friends.

 

A celebration of life service to honor George will be held at 9 AM on January 18th, 2024, at Vista Community Church, with a burial at Fort Sam Houston to follow immediately.
