    Wow, I just now saw this. He was definitely a pillar in the community, and will be sorely missed. Seems like he was around forever, it's hard to believe something so casual could sneak up and take him like that. Condolences to the family, and right before the holidays too.

    I have shot a bunch of subgun matches here in Vegas with Tom.
    That UZITALK Match in Vegas in 2004 ( & 2005) was a blast.
    It was nice when he would drop back in on us after moving up 'North.

    Rest in peace my friend. Hopefully the ammo is free now, and you can go hammer-down all day , every day.

    I too had only a few dealings with him and he was always pleasant and very courteous.
    I wont turn loose of any of my bolts now
    He helped steer me to a terrific timer at a time when i was having issues
    Yes, We will all miss him. Prayers for his family and friends

    Wow.. I just saw this! I remember talking with him when he first had the Suomi drums for sale. I bought a bunch but of course not as many as I should have. Things just never stop changing. :/

    I will be doing a drum dump in his memory and will likely always think of him when shooting them.

    Way too young, only 67. I always appreciated his advice.
    I plan on a few mag dumps today.

    FYI, the full obituary is below.



    A Thomas Wright IV, 66, of Garden Valley, Idaho made his final gesture on October 28, 2021, signing off on a life, in his words, "fully lived, fulfilled, and with few regrets."

    When the doctors confronted his daughters with the news, "your father is a very sick man," in unison, they replied, "you have no idea."


    God broke the mold after Tom was born to the late A Thomas Wright III and Marie Wright (Johnston). Being the eldest child, and only son was a dubious task, but he was up for the challenge. Growing up in Mississippi, there was lots of trouble to be found, and he never missed out on a mischievous opportunity. As he grew older, he never lost that playful and lively spirit, and his antics turned into witty humor and sarcastic jokes.


    Everything about Tom was larger than life. He always went out of his way to express kindness and gratitude to perfect strangers, and his outgoing personality made him friends everywhere he went.

    Mr. Wright was born in Jackson, MS on November 30, 1954, and lived in Las Vegas, NV from 1976 to 2019, where he retired from his job at Ewing Brothers Towing.

    He relocated to Garden Valley, ID in June 2019 where he admired the scenic beauty and serenity of the mountains every day. He became an "animal whisperer" of sorts, often hand-feeding baby deer, squirrels, and birds that wandered onto his porch when he was enjoying his morning coffee.

    He is survived by his sister, Anna Wright of Amelia Island, FL; daughters Lane Coston and Desiree Jimerson of Las Vegas, NV; and two granddaughters, Breigha and Blake.

    A celebration of life be held in Henderson, NV on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021 from 3-7pm. All are welcome to stop in, share their favorite stories, and enjoy some of Tom's favorite food and drinks in his honor, on his 67th birthday.

    For location details and more information on his service, please email tomwrightmemorial@gmail.com.
