Family and friends are saddened to announce the passing of Rodney (Rod) Charles Wright of Bellisle.
Rodney was born in Sussex, NB on July 20, 1959. The son of the late Eslie Charles Wright and Helen Doreen (Lynch) (Wright) DeVine. Grandson to his beloved grandparents, the late John C. Lynch and Nancy (Dolly) E. (Armstrong) Lynch and Hazen and Della Wright.
Rodney spent many years working out west before returning to live in Bellisle with his beloved dog Wren. Rodney fixed up the old Lynch homestead and made it a home. A quick visit with Rodney was never quick, many hours were spent sitting at the kitchen table reminiscing with his friends. Rodney had an extraordinary memory and never forgot a birthday, anniversary, special occasion, or details of hunting or fishing trips and adventures.
Rodney never missed an opportunity to be outside, spending many hours in his yard, hunting and fishing. Rodney took on the role of neighborhood caretaker and friend. He had a close relationship with neighbors Roy Pope Senior and his late wife Agnes. Known to his friends as Rod, if he considered you a friend, you were more than just a friend, you had a lifelong friend.
Rodney would often joke saying he was an only child, when he was actually one of seven siblings. We all knew we had a special place in his heart like he had in ours.
Rodney is survived by his siblings; Brenda Wright (Wally Currie), Jenny Wright, Randy (Mary Lou) DeVine, Beth (Bradley) Armstrong, Heather DeVine (Mark Thompson), Stacy DeVine (James Munroe), many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. His closest friends and brother’s from different mother’s; Rob Gale, Darryn McFarlane, Mike Crawford, Dave Joynes, Wally Sears, Dave Dunbar, Shawn Pope, and Rob Aiton. Predeceased by friends Gordie Bradley and Eric Mullin.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Wallace Funeral Home, 34 Sunnyside Drive, Sussex, NB (506-433-1176).
