Find A Grave Memorial : William Lee Wright (1919-1973)

I've created a memorial page for my paternal grandfather, William Lee Wright (1919-1973), who is buried in the Park View Cemetery, Alexandria, IN, along with my grandmother, Bonnie.

William was born December 1, 1919 in Monroe Twp., Madison Co., IN, the middle of three children born to Virgil Lee and Edna Muriel (Pierce) Wright.

He was known as "Johnny Bill" throughout his life, apparently due to a conflict over whether or not to name him John William after his grandfather. The 1920 census record bears this out, as he is listed as John W.E. Wright, 1 month old.
