John Thomas Wright Jr. passed peacefully on February 13, 2020 at 2:30 p.m.   Johnny, as he was affectionately known by his family, loved to laugh. He had a boisterous, hearty laugh that spread to all those around him.  He loved jokes and especially puns. A good pun would always bring a smile to his face.  The family knew he was sick, when he was told 10 puns and no pun in 10 did. 

He was a salesman by trade but mastered many skills. He was an avid reader. He graduated from the University of Georgia class of 1968 with a Bachelors of Arts in English. He loved all sports: baseball, football, tennis, racquetball and golf. He loved football most of all. He was a high school referee for 34 years. He was a scuba diving instructor and enjoyed many hobbies including woodworking, photography and aquariums to name a few.   He is survived by his three children,  John Thomas Wright III (Jay), wife Maria, grandchildren, Olivia, Alex, and Mary; Joel Marcus Wright (Joe); Ashley Wright Sisson, husband Keith, and grandson Jack.

Bob Allen

  Bob Allen, 78, of Big Canoe,  passed away Sunday, February 16, 2020, after a very brief illness. His wife, Judy, and son, Vince, were at his side.  A celebration of his life will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, February 29, 2020 at the Big Canoe Chapel.

Bob will be lovingly remembered as a devoted husband, father, grandad, and a true friend to so many. An excellent golfer, he enjoyed outings with longtime friends at Capital City Club and Big Canoe Golf Club. As an avid hiker, skier, and outdoorsman, Bob loved Big Canoe where he bought his first property in 1978. He and Judy have watched it become a large but close-knit community in which they were very active with their many treasured friends. The highlight of the past six years has been quality time spent with his grandson, Owen.

Known for his highly successful commercial real estate career, Bob was one of the founders of Cauble & Company, now Colliers International. In his leadership position, he was highly respected as a man of strong character, unquestionable integrity, and fierce loyalty in the business arena as well as in his personal life. Many young brokers benefited from and found their own successful careers while learning from Bob. While involved in his career, he still found time to be President of the Ronald McDonald House Charities. He attended Decatur High School and graduated from Georgia Tech in 1964.

Bob is survived by his wife, Judy; his son, Vince (Paula); and grandson, Owen. He was preceded in death by his parents, Catherine and Robert Allen Sr.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities; 795 Gatewood Road, NE; Atlanta, GA  30329 or to The Chapel at Big Canoe; 10455 Big Canoe; Big Canoe, GA  30143.

Mr. Allen was entrusted to the care of the staff of Roper Funeral Home and Crematory.
