?I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept my faith; Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." James Wesley ?Turbo" Wright, II, 43, Jonesborough, went to be with the Lord on January 11, 2018, after a long courageous fight with cancer. Wes will always be remembered for his infectious, beautiful smile, and sweet giving spirit. He never met a stranger and everybody he met he always told them he loved them. He could light up the room with his smile. Wes loved his racing Mustang friends and was very active in several car shows that he enjoyed with friends. Wes was of the Baptist faith. Wes was preceded in death by: his grandparents, John and Martha Eloise Dalton and Neal and Helen Wright.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Frank Johnson and Ashley Seals, PA and all coworkers at Johnson City Internal Medicine, that have walked this walk with Wesley.

    We are so very sorry for your loss. We pray that ?the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus? as you deal with the intense grief that comes with losing your loved one. (Phillipians 4:6, 7) The Bible assures us that God ?is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.? (Psalm 34:18) We look forward with you to the time when we will be able to welcome our loved ones back! (John 5:28, 29)

    Wes, you will be missed so very much by so many. You meant so much to me, and will forever be my Superman. I will never forget you and all of the memories, all of the hope and words you gave me that was such a blessing as God sent me an Angel when he sent you to be such an inspiration in my life… Fly High Wes… We will meet again one day soon when our precious Lord calls me home.

    Dear friends Losing a loved one can be one of the hardest things we have to face yet in this harsh world, but we have hope through the Bible, so hold on to it. You don’t have to grieve alone and Jehovah doesn’t want you to – so please take comfort in Psalm 62:2 it reads- Indeed, he is my rock and my salvation, my secure refuge; I will never be greatly shaken.
