Michael Lee 'Shaky Mike' Wright, Taylor County, KY (1961-2018)

Born on April 21, 1961 in New Albany, Floyd County, IN, he was 57 years, 3 months, and 22 days of age. He died August 12, 2018.

As a young man, he made a profession of faith in Christ and was of the Baptist faith. He worked many years in the construction industry, and was a licensed Electrical Contractor. Shaky's laid back and easy going, though sometimes gruff, manner of talk only hinted at his true inner self - an independent, hardworking man with a heart of gold that shared all he had with those around him. His infectious laughter when recalling a simple joke or prank filled many a job or campsite, and he had a knack for telling the best stories at the most (in)appropriate time. His simple yet loyal friendship will be forever cherished.

He leaves to mourn his passing
  • His mother and stepfather - Clinton and Modine (Harris) Keeling of Shepherdsville

  • One son - Mitchell J. Wright and fiance Amanda Pennington of Horse Cave

  • One daughter - Evie Sheridan Wright of Campbellsville

  • Three siblings - Charlotte Hamilton and husband Bruce of Bardstown, Charles Keeling and wife Lori of Shepherdsville, and Dana Robey and husband Joe of Louisville

  • Three grandchildren - Asher, Rider, and Remington Lee

  • A host of nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Orvey and Jessie Harris, and two brothers, Frankie Wright and Tim Wright.
