Obituary of Richard Gerald Wigfield
Richard "Wiggy" Wigfield passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 6th, 2019. He was born on December 12th, 1956. Beloved husband of Linda "Bear" (nee Borland) for 38 years. Loving son of Gerald and Kathleen Wigfield (nee Devine). Loving father to Ken (Ange), Milissa (Jeremy), and Liddle Lady. Grampa Wiggy to Hunter, Aiden, Briar, and Kole. Cherished brother of Deb (Renee), and Carol (Mike). Brother-in-law of Robert Borland, and Barbara (Andy). Richard is survived by his many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. He will be greatly missed by his telephone buddies Alex Bradley, Larry Stevenson, and Paul Tofflemire; as well as by his friend, neighbour, and "we can fix anything together" buddy Fernando Barreto. Richard was a diesel mechanic, and loved anything and everything to do with trucks; more especially his prized possession - his 2006 Chevy Duramax. In his younger years Richard enjoyed snowmobiling, forever loyal to the Merc make, and helping friends with race cars.
