GRAY - Former Kingsport city official Zack Wright, 71, died Tuesday at his home after an extended illness. Wright retired in 1997 after 31 years as a city of Kingsport building official.

"Zack was one of those people who made it a pleasure to come to work every day," said Dave Light, the city's community relations officer. "He had the best interest of the citizens of Kingsport at heart and was a great employee. I will miss him."

Wright's family will receive friends from 5 to 8 p.m. today at Hamlett-Dobson Funeral Home in Kingsport. Funeral services are scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday at Mountain View Baptist Church in Johnson City, where Wright was a member, followed by burial at Tri-Cities Memory Gardens in Blountville.
