David E. Wright Dave E. Wright was born on August 15th, 1951 to Ralph & Arlene Wright. Dave lived in Chariton, Iowa, before moving to Newton. Dave always looked forward to seeing his friends.

He graduated high school in 1969; moving to Des Moines shortly thereafter. It was there he met his wife Joyce. They married in June of 1980 and had 3 wonderful children. Dave was always a proud Dad. After the floods of 1993, Dave and his family moved to Bondurant where Dave, with the help of family and a few friends, built their home. Dave was never too busy to enjoy the simple things in life. He often treated his family to an ice cream at dairy zone, took them for rides on his motorcycle, and preformed numerous car repairs. He was a lifelong member of Wesley United Methodist Church in Des Moines. One of Dave’s greatest joys in life was becoming a grandpa.

He is survived by his mom Arlene Wright of Newton, Brother and Sister in law Steve and Connie Wright of Ira, Sister and Brother in law Vonda Springer and Bryan Weldon, several grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
