Mr. Cecil H. Wright, Jr., age 59, departed this life March 24, 2015, at the Genesis Health Care Nursing Home. Cecil was preceded in death by his loving siblings: sister, Stacia C. Wright and brother, Kevin L. Wright. Beloved son of Mr. Cecil H. Wright, Sr. and Mrs. Priscilla Wright; loving brother of Denette Clark, Darryl Wright, Toni Wright-Jones, and Lauretta Dorsey. Cecil attended Harlan Elementary School and graduated from P. S. DuPont High School in 1974. During his high school years, he was a social bug, who enjoyed sports, playing football, and was one of many who gathered at the P. S. DuPont SOUL DOOR. You had to be a Dynamiter to relate. Upon graduation, Cecil became employed with the State of Delaware, landing a custodian job with the school system. He loved his music, the drums to be specific. In his early years, he took drum lessons. He played wherever he could, mostly in the basement of his home - and he was quite good. He enjoyed listening to all types of music, but topping the list was oldies; however, he also liked jazz. Cecil enjoyed music so much that he would choose listening to it rather than watching television. Cecial had an undeniable and protective love for his family, especially his mother and father. He was a caring and loving person, who in his later years found peace in the church and became a member of The Resurrection Center. He went to church every Sunday; most times attended both services. He became an Usher and was so proud, he would show off his badge. So proud, that he would summon any and every one to take a picture of him in his suit and wearing his Usher's badge. He enjoyed helping others, especially seniors whom he befriended. He would sit for hours talking and laughing with them, doing small jobs or running errands. Early to rise, he would be up preparing for church and before the day was done, he would visit with a senior. He loved to dress and would be decked out, cleaner than the board of health - to use some of those familiar slangs. Cecil enjoyed laughter and was the household prankster; he liked teasing or getting you with one of his jokes. He always could make you laugh with one of his stories or impersonate someone or something that happened. He is also survived by his nephews, to name a few: Gerald, Kevin, Jamel, David, and Devon; devoted Aunt & Uncle, Mildred & Lenny Moore; Aunt Marion Gibbs; and a host of nieces, cousins, aunts and "Grand Mom" Juanita Gibbs. Funeral 11am, Wednesday, April 1st at The Resurrection Center, 3301 N. Market St., Wilmington DE 19802; viewing 9am-10:45am only. Burial, Silverbrook Cemetery
