I, Charles Wright, was born on October 16, 1946 in Huguley, Alabama in the house that my father had built the year before. I lived at this location until I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from Auburn University in December, 1969. I went to Lanett Kindergarten, Huguley Elementary school and graduated from Valley High School (1965) in Fairfax (now part of Valley, AL). First job from college was at Russell Mills (textiles) in Alexander City, AL. Worked there 11 years and moved to Taylors, SC to work for J.P. Stevens, Inc. (also, textiles). Worked there 4 years and then became an Information Technologies contractor. Worked at a number of companies and locations for the next 22 years. Tired of travel and took a permanent position with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama for 6 years before retirement. Along the way, I married Sherry Kay Fuller in June 1972. Kay had a 3 year old son (Robert Allen) whom I adopted. Later we had 2 daughters (Elizabeth Kaye) and (Jennifer Ashley). Kay and I divorced in 1997. I moved to Birmingham, AL. In 2002, I became partners with Greta Lee Mulkey Pickett and have been together ever since.
