June 13, 1927 - September 14, 2014
Horace "Rusty" David Wright, 87, of Aubrey, passed away Sunday, September 14, 2014 in McKinney, TX. He was born June 13, 1927 in Waco, TX to Jessie and Mildred (Pardo) Evans. Horace married Charlotte Marian Harvey on February 3, 1957 in Arlington, TX. Horace served in the US Merchant Marine. Rusty lived a full and interesting life. At the age of 17 he joined the Merchant Marines because he wanted to serve but was not of legal age for the regular Armed Forces. After traveling around the world twice he worked at several Defense companies and operated a launder mat. His mathematical ability led him to create CNC Products specializing in Cams and Helical work. Rusty was always looking to find a better way of doing things and this resulted in two patents being awarded to him. After selling his company he started teaching machine programming at Richland College passing on to his students his many years of knowledge and experience. He remained friends with many of his students up to the time of his death. He liked to fly single engine planes, was a member of BPOE, and loved to play pool. His humor will be missed by many. He is survived by his two daughters, Christine Olivarri of Aubrey, TX, Renee and husband Larry Kleckner of Garland, TX; five grandchildren, Scott Kleckner, Paula and husband Charles Schandelmeier, Rylie and husband Keith Emmert, Rex and wife Andrea Kleckner, Cid Olivarri; six great-grandchildren, Chase Schandelmeier, Chad Schandelmeier, Cooper Emmert, Astoria Kleckner, Maddox Emmert, Asher Kleckner. He was preceded in death by his parents and wife, Charlotte. No services are scheduled at this time. Online condolences may be shared at www.slaymemorialfuneralhome.com.
