Robert R. Wright of Hoboken, passed away on October 20, 2019.
Born to Jane and Bob Wright of Blackwood, NJ on August 16, 1972, Bob grew up a diehard Philadelphia sports fan. He graduated from Gloucester Catholic High School and Villanova University, where he played football with players who became life-long friends. After teaching History at Gloucester Catholic for a few years, he went on to work for Bank of America Merrill Lynch and most recently, Mizuho Securities. Bob had the opportunity to work with so many special people, many of whom became his closest friends. His passion for life was evident in his bigger than life personality, his love of family, and his commitment to leadership. Nothing brought Bob more joy than time on the golf course with friends, good music and his grill.
Bob’s memory will be cherished by his loving and formidable wife, Mary Wright (nee Sheridan), and beloved children, Aidan and Shannon. He is still loved in Eagles country by his dear siblings including his brother Brian Wright and sister-in-law Tanya, and his sister Lauren and brother-in-law Kevin Calzonetti. His extended family, including his Godmother Jeanne Muehlhauser and many cousins, nieces and nephews will forever miss Bobby in the backyard.

A Memorial Funeral Mass will be offered at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Hoboken (corner of Fourth and Hudson) on Thursday, October 24th at 10:00 AM. Interment private.
