David W. Wright

David W. Wright, 65, of Rochester died May 27, 2024 at Charlton Memorial Hospital.

            Born in New Bedford, son of Thelma H. (Santos) Rogers of Rochester and the late Arthur Wright, he was raised in Rochester and lived in Freetown before returning to Rochester.

            He was formerly employed by J.P. Noonan, W.C. Smith and son and T.L. Edwards until his retirement.

            He enjoyed fixing up cars, driving his Jeeps and spending time with his daughter. Dave could fix anything put in front of him. He loved playing in and digging up dirt, whether it was on an excavator, peeling out of driveways or riding his dirt bike too fast. Dave would grudgingly take care of any and all animals that his family brought home. Though not with an occasional glue factory joke. He will be remembered for making everyone around him laugh with his witty sense of humor, and will be deeply missed.

            Survivors include his mother; his daughter, Adrianna Coderre and her husband Andrew of Fairhaven; his former wife, Lorrie Haskell of New Bedford; 3 brothers, Arthur Wright of Rochester, Robert Wright of Wareham and Steven Wright of Taunton; 3 sisters, Cathy Bishop of Rochester, Debra Tower of Marion and Ruth Correia of Rochester; and numerous nieces and nephews.

            He was the brother of the late Paul Wright.

            His visiting hour will be held on Saturday, June 8th from 11 am – 12 Noon in the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Rd. (Rt. 6), Mattapoisett. Burial will follow in North Rochester Cemetery. For directions and guestbook, visit www.saundersdwyer.com.
