John Keifton Wright 64, was born in Ravenna, Ohio on March 15, 1957 to Allie Jean Wright and John K. Wright.
John Keifton Wright known as “Keith” was the eldest of 9 siblings. As a child growing up Keith embraced the responsibilities of being Big Brother. In return all his brothers and sisters showed him lots of love, and respect, embracing him as there big brother. At the age of 18, Keith was ready to take care of himself. He willingly moved out, married Robin Jennings and together created three children Darin, Jamiel and Kierra. He followed in the footsteps of his father and became a cement Mason. After 25 years of service with the cement masons and plasterers union Keith ventured out and started a construction business called Wright & Sons. Business was successful and stayed that way for many years. Keith eventually retired and was able to reflect and relax. He really appreciated the value of family and often helped a lot of family with anything he could. Keith made one thing clear, Dont Mess With His Family. Strongminded, loyal, loving, and genuine is who Keith was. If he had you in his heart…. He has you under his wings. He will be forever missed but never be forgotten.
