KALAMAZOO (WKZO) --Hundreds of mourners turned out for a memorial service for Kalamazoo Businessman and Entrepreneur Bill Wright at the Family Valley Church Saturday morning.

It was followed by a procession through Kalamazoo that took mourners past the Dealership where he worked for many years, past the Water Street Festival Park where his summer Rock Concerts were staged to raise money for his Wright for Kids foundation, and past Mayor’s Riverfront Park where the Kalamazoo Kings, the team he once owned, played.

The media was asked not to attend.

Wright was 54.
