Cyrenus Judge "CJ" Wright was born in 1915 in Eufaula, Oklahoma to Roy Wright and Maude Prater. His given name Cyrenus Judge was used several times in past generations of the Wright family and was a name taken from the Bible; Simon of Cyrene was the man compelled by the Romans to carry the cross of Jesus as he was taken to his crucifixion. He was usually called "CJ" by family and friends.
CJ married Lenny Lorene Owen at her parents home in Pittsburg County, Oklahoma, on September 21, 1938. After a few years the couple had one daughter, Linda Gale.
CJ, his father Roy, and brother George were Grocers and at various times had stores in Whitefield, Warner and other towns in Haskell, McIntosh and Muskogee Counties of Oklahoma.
Early in his adult life, after serving in the U.S. Armed Forces at the beginning of World War II, he developed a crippling disease. This was to cause the loss of the grocery business he shared with his father in Warner, toward the end of the 1940's. The family then moved to the larger town of Stigler, OK, and his wife ultimately was his dedicated nurse and supported the family as a hair dresser.
CJ died at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Muskogee, OK, August 28, 1961 only two days after his 46th birthday.
