David Wright, a longtime bus driver for Wilson County in Tennessee, was laid to rest on Sunday. He passed away on August 13th at the age of 76. Mr. Wright spend 50 years of his life serving the Wilson County School System and was well-known and respected in the community.
"Mr. Wright was a selfless leader his entire life by being the example we should all strive to be," the Wilson County Sheriff's Office said. "He never wanted or asked for anything in return for his service to the community which made him a special servant."
Given his dedication to the school system, he was buried in a custom, yellow school bus casket. What a unique way to be honored!
He was so respected in the school system, they even announced the transportation department will be named in his honor.
