Anyone who had spent time with Troy would be aware of one undeniable statement that formed his outlook on life – “I’m Consistent.” This was not just a mission statement for Troy but his lifestyle choice, one that was exclusively powered by his belief… a belief loved and cultured, held dearly and deeply, residing in his being. That was his belief that Jesus Christ is his Lord and Savior.
The Psalmist David, King of Israel paints a picture to which Troy would have confirmed as an example to the reasons that he chose to walk in Christ and in others with this consistency:
But “Troy’s” delight is in the law of the Lord and in this law does “Troy” meditate day and night. He is like a tree planted by the streams of water that yields its fruit in its season and whose leaf does not wither and whatever he does shall prosper.
Troy was a well rooted, well watered, and fruitful tree. And much like a tree, his life and legacy bear the fruit of the multitudes of people who have personally witnessed his lifestyle. As his roots stretched and his branches grew those who would remain in his midst would find shade and shelter from his constant love and dedication towards them to reveal the fruitfulness of his life and being.
Troy Lamar Wright was born on the 4th of March, 1981 as the last child and baby boy to Theada Wright, Jr. (deceased) and Linda Wilson Wright; his older siblings Tiffany Loreal Wright and Theada “Trey” Wright, III
As Troy grew from seed to tree, others in his life helped to ensure his steady growth by nurturing and watering him into the man that he chose to be. We honorably mention his foster mother Mary Evans (deceased); Aunt Truddie Evans; Aunt Mae & Uncle Jesse Gray; Uncle Donald Evans; Uncle, Bishop Jerryl & Aunt, Evangelist Jospehine Wright.
He accepted Christ at the age of 19 and devoted his life to learning more about the Lord and seeking fruitful ways to serve the Kingdom and God’s children.
Troy attended Christ for the Nations Bible Institute and Dallas Baptist University, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in History. He had aspirations to work in patent law, programming and desired to enhance the lives of children in the Asia’s as an ESL Instructor.
Troy loved his family dearly and took pride in unconditionally loving and caring for his elderly mother Linda and in raising his nieces Taylor, Tierny, and Zainab who had a profound impact on his life – “My Girls” as he would call them. Soon his pride would grow with the birth of his nephew, Loyal Lamar Wright, who carries his name and with whom he loved and cared for with the same diligence.Troy is preceded in death by his father, Theada Wright, Jr.; grandparents Theada & Barbara Wright; and his foster mother Mary Evans.
Troy is survived by his mother Linda Wilson Wright; siblings Tiffany Wright, “Trey” Wright, Lapricia Hathcock, Howard Chatman, Aninta Wright, Donna Hudson, Jason Evans, Darrell Hill; nieces Taylor, Tierny (Trey), and Zainab (Tanaya), Yolanda Prado (Lapricia), nephew Loyal Lamar (Tiffany); best friends Joshua Alvarado, David Anderson and Tangela Boyd along with a host of family and friends in the Dallas area, San Antonio area, and in Anderson, IN area who loved him, will miss him and are appreciative of his constant love for them.
