Rodeo star Spencer Wright and his wife, Kallie, are honoring the memory of their son, Levi, with a heartfelt obituary following his passing.

On May 21, Levi was hospitalized in critical condition after accidentally driving his toy tractor into a creek near the family’s Utah property. On June 2, his family made the heartbreaking decision to remove him from life support.

Days later, his mother shared his obituary, which was published by Southern Utah Mortuary.

The obituary begins with, “Our sweet boy, Levi Spencer Wright, affectionately known as “Beans,” was born on March 24, 2021, in Cedar City, Utah, to Spencer and Kallie Wright of Beaver, Utah. He passed away June 2, 2024, after a two week stay at Primary Children’s Hospital following an accident May 21st doing what he loved most, riding his electric toy tractor.”

The obituary goes on to describe Levi’s caring nature, saying, “Levi was exceptionally thoughtful and considerate for his age, he was constantly thinking of others. His heart was pure, tender and oversized.”

The family also highlighted Levi’s love for his two siblings, saying, “Levi loved his big sister, Steeley, and playing with her was one of his greatest joys. They were instant best friends. The verdict was still partially out on his baby brother, Brae, but Levi often asked to “hold baby.”

Levi was fondly remembered as a “die hard Grandma’s boy” who cherished spending time with his grandmother both at her home and at church.

“He enjoyed going to church with Grandma and was a Sunbeam for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints,” the obituary noted.

The obituary also touched on Levi’s close relationship with his father, calling him his “right-hand man.”

“His Dad was who he looked up to most; he wanted to be just like him and was well on his way. He had a passion for tractors, excavators, skid steers and all heavy equipment, even his music choice followed suit-he was always asking to play Big Green Tractor and The Excavator Song.”

“Like many 3 year old boys, he had a growing love for dinosaurs. He recently convinced himself he was a TRex and had begun roaring at people when he was too shy to speak to them. He was rarely seen without his cowboy hat and boots. He had just acquired his own horse and was beginning to enjoy family horse rides.”

The family expressed their gratitude to the volunteers and first responders who aided in Levi’s search and rescue, as well as the staff at Primary Children’s Hospital. The family also mentioned that his funeral service will remain private.

“Levi’s family would like to extend a warm thank you to the volunteers and first responders that participated in his search and rescue as well as the attentive and compassionate staff at Primary Children’s Hospital. Details for funeral services will not be made public. If you wish to attend, please contact a family member or close family friend to be provided details at their discretion.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Wright family during this time.
