The family of Stanley B. Wright of Lac la Hache, B.C. regret to announce his passing on February 6, 2013 in 100 Mile House, B.C.
Stan was born on November 29, 1920, the first of eight children born to Mary Melissa and Richard Thomas Burton Wright. A rancher, husband and stepfather, Stan was a pioneer and a community leader throughout his years in the Cariboo. Most of his time was spent working on his ranch at “Wright’s corner” in Lac la Hache. In his free time he was well-known for service to his community having spent many years as a member of the Lac la Hache Community Club, many of which he served as club president. Stan was also a long-time volunteer of other organizations including the Cariboo Regional District and the B.C. Cattleman’s Association. In his retirement he was instrumental in organizing the Lac la Hache Historical Society. Stan’s bingo calls of “O-clickety-click 66” and “top of the house, O-75” were a familiar refrain for bingo players all throughout the Cariboo for many years.
The family would like to thank the staff at Mill Site Lodge for taking such thoughtful care of Stan in recent years. They would also like to thank his long-time physician Dr. Rod Dickey and the emergency room staff at the 100 Mile Hospital for their kindness.
A “Celebration of Life” for Stanley will be held at the Lac la Hache Community Hall on February 23rd beginning at 2:00 p.m.
