HARRY WIGGINS

August 27, 1925 to April 22, 2002

WIGGINS, HARRY WIGGINS It is with a great sorrow that we must announce the sudden passing of our beloved father, Harry Robert Wiggins, at his home in Saskatoon on April 22, 2002 at the age of 76. Dad is survived by his sons, Bob (Marilyn) Wiggins, Ron Wiggins, Tom (Pat) Wiggins and his daughter, Kathie (Darren) Valantine. He is also survived by his sisters, Edith (Bern) Frankham, Doris (Jack) Henderson and Olive (Werner) Schatz; his grandchildren, Tracie (Brent) Belisle, Christeen (Steve) Leader, Brad (Tracy) Wiggins, Jason Wiggins, Jeff (Shannon) Wiggins, Denny Silbernagel, Michelle Silbernagel and David Silbernagel; his great-grandchildren, Matthew, Brandon, Jeremy, James, Jordan, Kayla and Chayse, who called him "Papa Great". There are many, many other relatives and friends, too numerous to mention, that we are sure will sorely miss our dad as well. Dad was predeceased by his wife, Dora (1980), and his sister, Blanche. Dad was born on the family farm near Nokomis, SK on August 27, 1925. He joined the Canadian Navy "underage" during World War II and served on corvettes on the North Atlantic run, finishing his service on the HMCS Orangeville. Dad was employed at Mitchell's Gourmet Foods Inc. for over 42 years retiring in 1986. After spending several years at the West Coast dad returned to Saskatoon and spent his last four years residing with his son, Tom. He took a keen interest in his grandchildren's accomplishments. He enjoyed his curling on television and was always up for a good game of cribbage. Dad you are deeply missed and will live on forever in our hearts. A Public Visitation for family and friends will be held on Wednesday, April 24, 2002 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and the Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2002 at 2:00 p.m. with Joan Brown presiding, both services at the Acadia Drive Funeral Chapel (915 Acadia Drive).
