Obituary of William « Glen » Wiggins
William Glen Wiggins, 78, of Moose Jaw, SK passed away on December 2, 2018 surrounded by much of his family. He was born near Manor, SK to Art and Mona (Kyle) Wiggins and was raised on a farm without electricity or plumbing. He grew up riding his horse to Manor school, doing his share of chores, and enjoying life on the prairie. With adventure on his mind, Glen joined the RCAF at the age of 17. He worked as an Airframe Technician on a variety of aircraft and was stationed in Ottawa, Marville France, Lahr Germany, Trenton and Moose Jaw. He most enjoyed the camaraderie of his fellow Air Force personnel and participated in volleyball and hockey throughout his career. The Air Force also offered him the opportunity to meet his wife of 55 years, Vicki (Eidsforth) while stationed at RCAF Uplands Ottawa. Glen will be remembered for his wit, love of family, and his creative flair. If he wasn’t playing with a grandchild, he’d also be tinkering in his workshop, building another model airplane, or recycling scraps to make some delightful object. Not only that, he was an excellent ping pong and foosball player who consistently left younger players dumbfounded at his skill. Glen was preceded in death by his parents, sister Shirley and brother Dale. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Vicki and his children Michael (Lisa) and Shirley (Kelly). Glen leaves behind eight grandchildren, Tenia (Sean), Christian (Desiree), Kylie, Ryland, Logan, Cameron, Grace and Emma. He will also be missed by his great-grandson James, his brother Ken (Chris), sister-in-law Gaye and brother-in-law Bernie (Mary), and numerous nieces and nephews. A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, December 16, 2018 at 1:30 pm at Parkview Funeral Chapel, 474 Hochelaga St W, Moose Jaw. Della Ferguson will officiate. A private interment will be held at Rosedale Cemetery. The Wiggins family would like to thank Dr. Ahmed and Dr. Niaz, nurses Ally, Debbie and the « Kims » at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital for their care and compassion during Glen’s final days. Per Adura Ad Astra.
