In Loving Memory of Michael T. Wright

13 September 1954 – 1 June 2020

On June 1, 2020 Michael “Mike” Wright passed away in a fatal accident in Pensacola, Florida.  He was 65 and is preceded in death by his father Edward Wright.  He is survived by his wife Jo Ann Wright, his mother Rona Wright, his brother Thomas Wright, his sister Janet Nelson, daughters Samantha Wright, MayB Sersland, Heather Sersland, and his Grandchildren Tylyn Sersland, Steven Whiting, and Samantha Seip-Bayes. 

Mike had many hobbies some of which include cycling, shooting, and most importantly diving.  Mike started recreational diving in 1994.  Upon (first) retirement he was able to invest more time into diving and started to pursue the path of instructor.  Combining his passions for teaching and diving he earned multiple PADI certifications achieving the level of Master Scuba Instructor.  He also became the owner of Blue Octopus Scuba in Alexandria, Virginia.  He dedicated himself to his dive shop, teaching, and helped introduce many others to the joy of diving and his passion for it.
