The family of Chris Wright

Christopher Wright passed away with his family by his side on Saturday, May 20th, 2023. On Friday, May 19th, 2023, following an altercation at school, three teens and two unknown adult male relatives of one of the boys approached the home of the Wright/Karopchinsky family and began to threaten Chris' son, with physical violence. Chris went outside to defend his son and was beaten in the head and his body was slammed head-first on the asphalt causing a severe traumatic brain injury. He underwent right-hemisphere brain surgery at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, suffered a left-hemisphere stroke, and had bleeding on his brain stem. These men took the life of an amazing father and life partner, and he left this Earth and those who loved him way too soon. His children are now without their father. Tracy, his partner, needs help with funeral costs and help financially with the cost of raising their three boys alone. Please help this family say goodbye to Chris and help secure a future for his children
