Jim Wright, age 57 and a lifelong resident of Hinsdale, died while hiking in the mountains of North Carolina on August 22, 2021. Jim was a smart, witty, generous man who was full of life. He was a talented software architect who enjoyed solving problems and building strong teams. His passion was his family. He was always planning the next family adventure and he loved to take hiking trips with his wife and son. Jim was a fantastic father, a beloved son and brother, a crazy-fun uncle, a loyal friend, and an absolute rock to anyone who leaned on him in a time of need.
He is survived by his wife, Bridget O’Hara Wright; his son Daniel; his brothers Kevin (Marilee) Wright and Patrick (Patricia) Wright, and his sisters Elizabeth (Paul) Grizzell and Margaret (Steve Koznarek) Wright, many nieces and nephews, and a family of in-laws who loved him dearly.
