Alvin Curtis Wright passed away of natural causes at his home in Warroad, MN on May 24, 2023.  Alvin was born January 5, 1936 to Curtis and Mabel (Hiller) Wright. He graduated from Warroad High School in 1954.  Alvin was a mechanic in the army and honorably discharged in 1957. He worked for many years at Marvin Windows, farmed south of Warroad, and for a short time cut pulp wood in Beltrami Forest.

Alvin enjoyed attending auction sales and would travel around the region often with friends and family,  taking in auctions. He had a keen interest in novelty crops and researched all types of alternative crop seeds.  Alvin is fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews as a kind and loving uncle.  He made many trips through the woods hunting deer, picking blueberries and cutting wood. Around the farm many memories were made and shared about gardening, fruit trees and berries.

Alvin is survived by sisters-in-law Joyce and Gloria Wright, nieces and nephews Larry Gunnarson, LaMar Gunnarson, Connie Swenson, Cathy Wallar, Laurence Wright, Lorrain Kukowski, Del Wright, Diane Stusynski, Lila O’Rourke, Rob Wright, Pattie White and Scott Wright.  He is preceded in death by his parents Curtis and Mable, brothers Lyle, Larrie and Dean, sister Verna (Gunnarson), and nephews Michael and Alan Wright.
