Donny Wright, the son of J.D. and Gracie Wright, entered into Heaven’s gate on June 9, 2018. He was raised in Mississippi and moved to Arkansas in 1986.

He had many accomplishments, including but not limited to, his dual bachelor’s degree from Harding University in Bible and Social Work, Masters of Social Work from UALR, and PHD in Divinity from Hawaii. His most recent accomplishment was becoming the founder of Life Recovery Center, which he housed and operated out of his personal home.


He is preceded in death by his mother and father, J.D. and Gracie Wright of Fulton, Mississippi, two sons; Jonathan and Jeremy Wright both of Mooreville, Mississippi, a non-biological brother; Tee Cardin of Tupelo, Mississippi.


He is survived by his two children and five grandchildren, Levi and Krystal Wright, their daughters Hillary and Hadley, of Higginson; Selah and Nathan Neal, their sons Nate and Layton Neal, of Heber Springs, Arkansas; and McKenzie Wright, daughter of Jonathan Wright of Tupelo, Mississippi; as well as thousands of friends and extended family. Every single person’s thoughts and prayers are eternally appreciated.
