BILL WRIGHT – Driver of the well-known 4320 John Deere – Oooh Deere 

The SWOTPA executive and members send our deepest condolences to the Oooh Deere pulling team after learning that Bill’s fight with ALS has come to an end. Bill has been a great asset to SWOTPA over the years as a puller, an executive member including president of the association and many years as head tech official.

 

We often heard of the runs Oooh Deere, piloted by Bill, made at events in Michigan, Ohio, Louisville, and others. Bill and Margaret Ann graciously welcomed several pullers to their home to park between hooks on a busy pulling weekend – and this often led to sharing many laughs and good times together.

 

Bill has been a good friend to many of us in Southwest and throughout the pulling community in both Canada and the US; and he will be deeply missed. But even more than a puller, Bill was a farmer at heart and together with his family, farmed many cash crop acres.

 

Margaret Ann and all of the Wright family – you will all be in our thoughts in the days ahead.
