Robert Allen Wright was born February 17, 1944, in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Robert and Myrtle (Hines) Wright. Bob grew up in Minneapolis and graduated from North High School. He then attended college at the University of Minnesota for one year before entering the United States Army. Upon his honorable discharge, Bob went back to the University of Minnesota to complete his degree in accounting. On June 16, 1984 Bob was united in marriage to Lloydeen Hoida in Maple Gove.  Bob worked for various accounting companies over his career, with M.A. Mortenson being his most recent. Bob retired on April 15, 2005. In his spare time, Bob enjoyed reading and completing crossword puzzles. He liked being outside and simply spending time at the lake. In his younger years, Bob was the self-proclaimed greatest softball first baseman and then when he could no longer stretch for the long throw, became the self-proclaimed greatest catcher. Above all, Bob treasured the time he was able to spend with his family.
Bob is survived by his wife of almost 31 years, Lloydeen of Maple Lake; daughters and their spouses, Shannon and Jay Lotthammer of Eden Prairie and Jennifer and Deric Peterson of Winter Springs, FL; adoring grandchildren, Nick Taylor, Anna Taylor, Cayden Peterson, and Kennedy Peterson; sister, Pat (Jim) Graen; and numerous nieces, nephews, and other family members and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Myrtle; siblings, Wilbur “Billy” Wright and Linda Skogman; and Shannon and Jennifer’s mother, Paulette (Seppelt) Wright.
