Christopher J. Wright, 53, of Milford, passed away on Friday, August 24, 2018 surrounded by his family after a courageous nine-year battle with cancer. He was the fiancée of Debi Campbell. They were together for 19 wonderful, adventurous years. Born in Framingham, he was the son of Jean (Gavigan) Wright of Framingham and the late Raymond Wright. He was a former long-time resident of Framingham. He was a graduate of Keefe Technical High School (Framingham) Class of 1983. Chris worked as an automotive technician at Land Rover MetroWest for many years, then J. White’s Automotive, Framingham, MA; most recently he was employed at Lowes of Milford, and Gillette Stadium as a Concession Supervisor.
His passion was cars. For many years he owned an International Scout which he showed and won many trophies. His current passion was restoring a 1973 Pontiac Grand Am. He followed the Bruins, the Patriots and NASCAR. He spent the winter of 2016-17 in Nokomis, Florida where he loved going to the beach, searching for shark’s teeth and metal detecting. While in Florida, he was able to attend a pre-season Red Sox game, a NE Patriots game in Miami and a Bruins game in Tampa.
In addition to his fiancée and mother, Chris is survived by his children, Kelly C. Wright and Julie A. Wright of Milford, his brother Raymond Wright and wife Arlene of Clinton, MA, a nephew, Kevin Wright and niece, Olivia Wright of Clinton, MA. He was pre-deceased by his brother, Bruce S. Wright.

He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins.
