Caleb N. Wright, 82, of North Swanzey, passed away in the comfort of his home surrounded by family on December 11, 2017.

He was born November 12, 1935 in North Swanzey, the son of Pauline (Wilber) and Frank Wright.

After high school, Cal proudly served his Country for three years in the Army. Upon returning home he met and married the love of his life, Louise Bussino, on January 12, 1957.

Cal was employed by Frank W. Whitcomb Construction for 40 years.

Loved by all, Cal was known for his dry sense of humor. He stayed socially connected to his community as a member of the Elks Lodge 927 where he played cribbage, VFW, Eagles, and the Italian Club. He was a jack-of-all-trades and built two of his homes from the ground up. He was an old car enthusiast and enjoyed spending winters at his home in Boynton Beach, FL. More than anything, Cal loved spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and well as his dog, China.

Cal will be dearly missed by his loving wife of over 60 years: Louise Wright of North Swanzey; daughter: Cynthia Mackenzie and her husband Mark of Surry; son: Kevin Wright of Alstead; sisters: Carole Wright of Boynton Beach, FL, and Charlotte Kittredge of North Swanzey; brother: Casswell Wright and his wife Deborah of Bellows Falls, VT; 7 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family members.

He is predeceased by his daughter, Jennifer Wright, and parents Pauline and Frank Wright.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, December 17, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the Elks Lodge, 81 Roxbury Street, Keene, NH.
