Brother Dullie Wright transitioned from labor to reward on Friday, January 20, 2023. Brother Wright was born to Duley and Helen Wright (Allen) on October 23, 1949, in Moncks Corner, SC. His early educational development was fostered in Holly Hill, SC. He graduated from Roberts High School in 1967 and entered South Carolina State College (SCSC) in Orangeburg, SC that fall. He left SCSC to serve his country in the Vietnam War in the United States Army as member of the 101st Airborne Division. Earning the rank of Sergeant, he was honorably discharged in September 1977. Brother Wright returned to South Carolina State College where he completed the requirements to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree in Social Welfare in December 1980. In 1995, he earned his Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Webster University in St. Louis, MO. He retired from the South Carolina Department of Social Services in 2013, after thirty-three years of service.
He was joined in holy matrimony to the love of his life, Leatrice George Wright, on May 20, 1972, who preceded him in death. To this union two children were born, Robin Kristen and Mychal Allan.
At the time of his death, he was a faithful member of St. Peters A.M.E. Church where he served diligently on the Senior and Male Choirs, Warming Center Ministry, Prison Ministry, and on the Steward Board as Steward Pro-Tem. He had prior appointments as a class leader and member of the Culinary Committee. He was also a Life Member of the Colleton County Chapter of South Carolina State University Alumni Association.
He leaves to cherish his memory: a daughter, Robin Kristen Wright of Orangeburg, SC and a son, Rev. Mychal Allan Wright of Walterboro, SC; one sister, Alfreda Gail Bryant of Columbia, SC; two sisters-in-law, Rev. Sandra Winfield of Walterboro, SC and Maike George of Richmond Hill, GA; four brothers-in-law, Rev. Larry Winfield of Walterboro, SC, Kenneth George of Walterboro, SC, Charles Stephen George of Richmond Hill, GA, Tim Bryant of Columbia, SC; nine nieces; three nephews, and a host of relatives and friends.
Brother Dullie Wright was a stoic, yet caring man of very few words. He said what he meant and meant what he said. He was loved and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
