Ansel Wright


WRIGHT, Ansel V….

June 10, 2020, the Lord called Ansel Vivian Wright, home in his 98th year. Loving father of Dorrett Darling (Jamaica), Daphne and son-in-law, John Martin (Vancouver), Heather (London) and Susan (Toronto). Cherished grand-dad and great-grandfather. Friend to your old buddy, Fiddler, the Cat. Predeceased by his siblings and his son, Owen. A family service has taken place. Interment in Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens, London.

Dad, your journey began at 19 leaving Jamaica, taking you to the USA, England and settling in Canada, a country you loved. We appreciate your loving care in raising us. We remember how well you treated your patients in your 33 year career as an orderly at VH South Street and how, in turn, they remembered you.

Dad, you were a believer in God, a husband and father, a story-teller and an adventurer. We remember how at 95 you were still shovelling snow and raking leaves. You so enjoyed your weekly drives to see the shoreline at Port Stanley and to stop and have orangeade and fries at Mackies and an ice cream cone at Shaw's.

We wish to remember Pastor Bruce Redding and your church family at Berean Baptist and we thank everyone for their prayers. Thank you to Reverend Canon Greg Smith. Special thanks to Dr. Steven Goldie, the EDITH Team of Dr. Kirk Hamilton, Dr. Ed Stack and Dr. Jill, VON Nurses Rachel, Shaquilla, Nancy, Derek, Jane, Liz, and Cody, E-Shift care providers Henry and Juan and the SWLIN, especially Ruby. Your care and attention to our father and our family made dad's journey home peaceful.

Till we meet again dad, all of our love.
