December 20, 1969 – August 16, 2022
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Caesar Wright, the Executive Chairman and former CEO of MakoRabco. While Caesar served many roles throughout his nearly 30-year career at MakoRabco, he was also an icon in the Self-Storage Industry. Quick to share a smile, a laugh, and a drink. He was a leader, mentor, spokesperson, guest lecturer, go-to problem-solver, decision-maker, husband, father, friend, and an inspiration to all who knew him.
Through Caesar’s vision of growth and service, he led MakoRabco to become the largest and most reputable nationwide company providing design, supply, and installation of self-storage facilities. Having been in the building industry for his entire career, Caesar is known across the country and respected by all those he led, inspired, and taught. Caesar helped to raise the standards of a growing industry while maintaining a steadfast work ethic and an ever-present sense of humor. He was a leader who was easy to follow.
Caesar was dedicated to the company he built, the employees who worked for him, and the clients they served. He was extraordinarily proud that more than 70 percent of MakoRabco’s business came from repeat customers and referrals—clients he regarded as close friends and members of an extended family.
In the office, he worked hard to promote a family-first environment. He truly valued the MakoRabco employees and fostered an atmosphere that recognized the human element as an essential ingredient in the success of the business.
Caesar Wright has had a profound effect on the industry and on all those with whom he came in contact. His family, friends, and colleagues will miss him enormously. He leaves a legacy of work that will remain an inspiration to each one of us.
In an enduring tribute to Caesar, we will remember to value our family at home and at work, remember each day the importance of treating people with love and kindness, and be inspired by his words, “Work hard and stay humble.”
We would like to ask that in lieu of flowers/gifts please consider donating to Kure It Cancer Research in Caesar’s name as a way to help others who might be going through the same thing.
