We have all lost a dear friend. William Franklin Wright, a longtime resident of Incline Village, passed away March 22, 2012.He was born October 20, 1962 in Royal Oak, Michigan. He was everybody's best friend, always helping out with fundraisers, sporting events, or just lending a hand to help someone out. Every day was a great day to Will. He had a very positive outlook on life. All those who knew Will, will always remember the “STORIES” he would tell, one after the other! Socially, he was always the center of the conversation.Will attended Michigan State University before moving west at the age of 20 when he moved to Northern California. In 1992, he moved to Incline Village, Lake Tahoe. Will loved Lake Tahoe and all it had to offer. He enjoyed bowling, boating, snowshoeing, lying out at the beach, (with a good book) hiking and stopping by the local social establishments.He volunteered for several organizations, including Kids andamp; Horses, Lions Club, Tahoe Players Association, Lacrosse Tournaments, Clampers and the Optimists Club.Crosby's is hosting a dinner in Will's honor on Friday, March 30th at 5:30 p.m. A Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday, March 31st, at 3:00 p.m. at the Chateau.
