He loved tinkering with his tractors and building with his hands. Wiggy enjoyed word search puzzles, going to camp and playing poker and cribbage and fishing with his family on his pontoon boat. He was also known as an excellent cook who never learned how to cook for less than six people. His pride and joy was his family, especially spending time with all his grandchildren.
