October 29, 1979. It was a subdued affair. There would be no wake. A short visitation period at Blandin’s Funeral Home was followed by a requiem Mass at St. Peter Claver’s Catholic church, then burial at St. Roch’s Cemetery in the city's eighth ward. The events of the day wrote a quiet closing signature to the life of a man who had spoken so loudly in defense of a voiceless people. Ernest Wright, once called “the indomitable champion of the people,” was laid to his final peace.
