Ralph F Wright, II

Ralph Ferris Wright II, passed away peacefully May 22, 2021 at his home in Flanders, NJ after a long and brave battle with cancer. He was 67.

Ralph was born in Bethesda, MD to Robert and Hilda Wright. The oldest of five children, he grew up in Parsippany, NJ before marrying his teenage sweetheart and eternal love, Kathie Selementi, in February of 1977. A fairytale in the making, Ralph and Kathie later moved to Roxbury, NJ where they lived happily for thirty-eight years and raised seven amazing children together. Along with his siblings, Ralph owned and operated Aristocrat Limousine & Bus Company in Parsippany for twenty-one years, after the family-owned business was first established by his parents in 1971. Ralph attained the honorable rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 16, becoming the 3rd generation in his family and youngest member to receive the badge from Parsippany High School. Ralph’s greatest joy and pride was his passionate devotion to his extensive family.

Ralph is survived by his loving wife Kathie (nee Selementi) of 44 years, and his 7 children: Joseph Wright and his wife Lauren, Danielle Wright and her husband Michael Wojcik, Ralph Wright III and his wife Dorothy, Anthony Wright and his wife Ashley, Jennifer Wright and her fiancé Andrew Paino, Edward Wright and his wife Donna, and Jesse Wright and his fiancée Alexa Salierno. Ralph is survived by his mother Hilda Wright of Parsippany, NJ, and his siblings: Robert Wright of Rockaway, NJ, Richard Wright of Parsippany, NJ, Brenda Baxter of Parsippany, NJ, and Rodney Wright of Tampa, FL. He also leaves behind 9 grandchildren, and so many amazing nieces and nephews.

A Private Memorial Celebration will be held for immediate family. In lieu of flowers, a charity has been set up and the family is asking for donations to be made in his name to: Goryeb Children’s Hospital through Atlantic Health Systems. Ralph’s fundraising donation page can be found here.
