MICHAEL LEE "SHAKY MIKE" WRIGHT, 57, CAMPBELLSVILLE

 
Michael Lee “Shaky Mike” Wright, 57, of Campbellsville, KY passed away on Sunday, August 12, 2018 . He was born on April 21, 1961 in New Albany, Indiana. 
 
As a young man, he made a profession of faith in Christ and was of the Baptist faith. He worked many years in the construction industry, and was a licensed Electrical Contractor. Shaky’s laidback and easygoing, though sometimes gruff, manner of talk only hinted at his true inner self – an independent, hardworking man with a heart of gold that shared all he had with those around him. His infectious laughter when recalling a simple joke or prank filled many a job or campsite, and he had a knack for telling the best stories at the most (in)appropriate time. His simple yet loyal friendship will be forever cherished.
 
He was preceded in death by his grandparents: Orvey & Jessie Harris, and 2 brothers: Frankie Wright & Tim Wright.
