Mr. Bernard Ceasar Wright, 70, passed away on October 18, 2023. Bernard was born on February 11, 1953 in Columbus, Ohio to Ceasar Wright and Carrilla Wright-Wall. He is Preceded in death by his mother, Carrilla Wright; father, Ceasar Wright; brother Kermit G. Wright.

Brown (George R. Brown); Marritta Morris (Roderick Morris); Ballarrie V. Wright; brother Gregory L. Wright; 20 grandchildren; 3 great grandchildren; and 17 nieces and nephews.

Bernard was a kindhearted God-fearing man who worked as head Chef at Scioto Country Club for more than 25 years until retiring 5 years ago. He enjoyed cooking and took pride in whipping up spectacular meals for family and friends. He always seemed to have a joke on hand and brought laughter to any room that he entered. In his free time, he loved listening to music and watching classic urban movies. He fancied himself a DJ in his prime and always dressed in the latest fashions. Bernard was also a car enthusiast and moonlighted as a mechanic; you could often find him under the hood of a car or cruising around town in his freshly waxed ride. Bernard was easy going and one of the coolest people you could ever meet. He will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
