Marcus "Mark” D. Wright, 65, of Platteville, passed away October 14, 2021 at UC Health in Greeley, Colorado. He was born on December 7, 1955 to Donald and Lillian (Swain) Wright in Chappell, NE. Mark grew up in Chappell, NE and later graduated from Salina Central High School in Salina, Kansas where he met Regina Brown and later married on February 9, 1980. He was an entrepreneur, owned several businesses, as well as drove a truck for over 30 years. Mark had a strong work ethic with pure ambitions of taking care of his family, his top priority in life. Beyond his family Mark had a passion for auctions, restoring vehicles, and his community; where no one was a stranger, only a friend he hadn’t met. He developed a love of baseball through watching his grandsons where he never missed a game.
Mark is survived by his wife, the love of his life, Regina, their three children, Alichia Wright, Jeremy Wright, and Eric Wright; grandchildren, Troy (Korina) Wright and Kayden Wright; his great-granddaughter Wrenlee Wright; his brothers Les (Linda) Wright, Kenny (Raylene) Wright, Mike (Deb) Wright; his sisters Mary (Gary) Jeppson, and Dodie (Rodger) Martin.
