In Memory of Robert Wright, Director Emeritus

It is with fond remembrance that Greenwich House marks the passing of Director Emeritus and former Board Member, Robert F. Wright, 92, who passed away, Friday, May 18, 2018 at his home.  

Bob was a dedicated member of the Greenwich House Board of Directors for 24 years, from 1991-2015, where he also served as Treasurer and Chair of the Audit Committee. He was named a Director Emeritus in 2015.
