Donald D. Wright of Marlborough died Saturday, February 6, 2021, following a lengthy illness. He was 80 years old.
Donald was born in Newport Center, VT. He was the son of the late Kenneth S. and Isabelle (Sanville) Wright, and the beloved husband of Alice R. (Ferland) Wright. Married over 61 years, Donald and Alice did everything together. With farming in Don’s blood, he and Alice’s passion in life was their Berlin farm, ADDA Farms, where they produced their own maple syrup from their maple trees, and sold it locally. They were also a fixture at the Bolton Fair for a number of years where they displayed their Shire draft horses and a beautiful array of wagons and carts. Donald had a wide range of business interests including his construction company, WBCC (Wright Brothers Construction Corp.), Post Road Used Auto Parts, and the Marlborough Transfer Station, all of which he ran with his wife, Alice.
Besides his wife, Donald is survived by his three daughters, Teresa Amici of Holden, Jean Rabelo and her husband Julio of Shrewsbury, and Angela Lutton and her husband William (Bill) of Berlin. He leaves behind five grandchildren, Kristen Donahue and her husband Jeffrey, David Santospago, Kenneth (Kenny) Amici and his partner Ashley, Kevin Amici, and Brian Amici, and a great-grandson, Luca Amici. Donald is also survived by two brothers, Terrill (Short) Wright and his wife, Jackie, and Wilfred K. Wright and his wife Claudette.
Donald is remembered by his family as a model of who every man should be - loving and kind, honest and hard-working, fiercely protective of those he loved, so generous and so brave in the face of adversity. We pray now for God to embrace him as he joins his loving family in heaven.
