67-Year-Old Rep. Ron Wright Dies after Battling Coronavirus – And Lung Cancer

God rest his soul.
Rep. Ron Wright passed away on Sunday in Dallas, Texas.

The 67-year-old Republican had contracted coronavirus. Wright had also been battling lung cancer for months.

At least half of the covid victims died with the disease and not from the disease.

The Daily Caller reported:

Republican Texas Rep. Ron Wright died Sunday at the age of 67. He had been in the hospital for several weeks after testing positive for COVID-19.

Wright had previously battled lung cancer in the fall of 2020. He tested positive for COVID-19 in late January and was hospitalized. Wright’s office released a statement Monday saying he died peacefully with his wife “by his side.”

“Congressman Ron Wright passed away peacefully at the age of 67 on Feb. 7, 2021. His wife Susan was by his side and he is now in the presence of their Lord and Savior. Over the past few years, Congressman Wright had kept a rigorous work schedule on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives and at home in Texas’ Congressional District 6 while being treated for cancer. For the previous two weeks, Ron and Susan had been admitted to Baylor Hospital in Dallas after contracting COVID-19,” a statement from Wright’s office read.
