Dominic Dashawn Wright, 16, of Louisburg North Carolina made his heavenly transition on Wednesday, October 11, 2017. This thoughtful, inquisitive young soul was born on February 27, 2001, to his loving parents, Sherod Pinkard and Elizabeth Wright.
As a 11th grade student at Louisburg High School, Dominic embodied tenderness and compassion. Dominic took Honor and Advance Placement classes. He was an active member of the JROTC as a Flight Sergeant where he was second in command. Dominic assisted, motivated, and lead by setting a good example for the cadets to follow while in JROTC. LHS teachers and students spoke highly about Dominic’s unique talent with doing Math tricks and speaking fluent Spanish. He completed the Duke University SENSOR Academy 2015-2016. Dominic played a myriad of sports throughout middle school, enjoyed card games and magic tricks, and he was a New York Giants fan.
Dominic was a gentle, quiet, well-mannered and respectable young man. He was interested in becoming an entrepreneur in business and pursuing music. Dominic’s quiet demeanor and sense of humor will be missed. He will be remembered for his empathy and desire to understand the world around him.
