I went to school with Bobby and Chris. They would be in their late 50's/early 60's. Does anyone know if they are still in the area or what happened with them? Chris was paralyzed in a diving accident when he was in high school in the late 60's/early 70's.

If anyone can help, would be appreciated.

I remember both of them . It was terrible when Chris was hurt so bad . We dated a time b4 the accident . He was nice looking . After that accident , it really took the light out of his eyes . It hurt all of us . I didn't know he died ! What happened ?

I dated Chris both before and after his diving accident. Bobby also taught me how to drive a straight stick. Chris gave me a set of figurines one year for Xmas and I still have them.

I'd like to know how Chris passed also. He was such a sweet guy but the accident changed him naturally.

I wish I knew more or how to get a hold of someone in the family. There are so many Bobby Wright's in California.

You can contact Brightleaf Motel. Chris was in Golden Living Nursing Home in Stanford Ky. He died very shortly after his Mother. He wasn't the Chris you would have wanted to see....remember him how he was when we went to school with him! What girl didn't date him and have the HOTS for him!!!

Do you remember a guy named David Mcneil ? I dated him a couple times . I thot he & Chris were so cute . I'm sure that Chris re-lived that day of diving in the lake over & over . Jesus . What a shock ! Bless his heart . He must've gotten in a bad way towards the end .

I know that he got involved with drugs. Such a tragedy. I was going thru some old pictures and ran across some of him when we were dating. That was what made me inquire about him. Do you know about how many years it has been since he passed? And what he died from?

Chris died June 2001. His mother died April 2001. It was not drug related, his body just finally started shutting down.

It seems like people that are in the shape that Chris was usually don't live a long life . I hope he's walking tall & being that cutey pie he always was . Hard to talk about . Thanks for the info .

Thank you all for the information. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing. If my math is right, he would have been about 47 at the time. His family was always so nice to me. I'll never forget his smile and the way his eyes seemed to twinkle. RIP sweet Chris!
