On the morning of Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2002, Granville Township native Willard Dane Wright died quietly at the Bradford County Manor after a lifelong battle with a debilitating illness. He was 45 years of age. Born April 28, 1956 in Sayre, he was the son of Ernest and Mary Schmouder Wright. Willard was a graduate of Troy High School, Class of 1976 and had been employed by SERVE, Inc. of Monroeton, during which time he resided in Towanda. When health conditions would no longer permit him to work, Willard moved to the Smith Personal Care Home in Wyalusing. He enjoyed reading and visiting with friends and family, always quick to give a cheerful smile and a big hug. Willard had a great love for the Lord and church involvement was always a high priority. While living in Wyalusing, he became a member of the Wyalusing United Methodist Church, being as active as his physical limitations would allow. In his own special way, Willard would reach out to those around him, touching their hearts and brightening their days. Besides his parents, Ernest and Mary of Granville Summit RR1, Willard is survived by brothers and sisters-in-law, James and Diann Wright of Towanda and Donald and Diane Wright of Canton RR2; niece, Megan Wright and nephew, Donald Wright, Jr.; numerous cousins and a special friend, Margie Porter.
