Wright Funeral Home was established December 10, 1972 by Carl Roger Wright, a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer, after he purchased the former Phillips Funeral Home. In 1975 Roger married the former Dorothy F. Moats, who became an associate in the business. Mr. Wright continued to operate from the original facility until 1986, when they built their new establishment at its current location of 216 N. Walnut St. Philippi, WV.
Dorothy F. Wright passed from this life August 7, 2004.
Joseph Jon Wright joined his father's business as a licensed funeral director and embalmer in 2005. Jon presently operates the business with assistance from his wife, the former Toni M. Martin. They are the parents of two children, Logan and Alexis Wright.
Wright Funeral Home continues to operate as the oldest family owned and operated establishment in Barbour County.
