Sept. 4, 1891 - Aug. 5, 1941
|The late Rev. P. P. Wright was born September 4, 1891. He was the son of the late Rev. S. S. Wright and Dinah Wright. He served through the years as pastor in the Louisiana Confer-ence. He was always a loving and devoted son and brother. He was loved by all who came in contact with him. When in early life he accepted Christ and the call to preach the Gospel. He joined the Louisiana Conference under the pastorate of the late Rev. W. M. Harrall, and ably served through many years. He was a fine leader and an excellent preacher. In the year of 1941 he was stricken. Although he fought hard, the struggle seemed to have been in vain. On August 5, 1941, God called him home.
He served the following charges: Conrad, Lobedell, Winterville, Slaughter, Zachary, Derford, Lettsworth, Union, Mount Carmel, and Ashley. He attended the public schools of Con-rad and Baton Rouge and pursued further courses at Baton Rouge Academy. He leaves to mourn his loss, a devoted wife, Mrs. Adele Wright, his mother, one daughter, two sons, three grandchil-dren, one sister, and a host of other relatives.
“Servant of God, well done. Thy glorious warfarer, past the battle fought. The race is won and thou are crowned at last.”
