Terrell Wayne Wiggins, 60, of Woodbine died Saturday morning, Dec. 16, 2017, at his sister’s residence in Waycross after an extended illness.
Mr. Wiggins was born in Amarillo, Texas, to Maurice Terrell Wiggins and the late Alice Geneva McBee Wiggins, but had made Woodbine his home for the past 28 years. He was a train engineer for Kings Bay Support Service and in his opinion “The Best,” but he had many other callings outside work, including: fishing, cooking, the Georgia Bulldogs and being a part of the children’s ministry at First Baptist Church of Kingsland.
He loved his grandchildren unconditionally and served as a Scout master for Troop 208. Mr. Wiggins served his country for 30-plus years in the Georgia Air National Guard where he held multiple positions.
Mr. Wiggins is survived by a daughter, Amanda Hardy (Jeff) of Rockmart; two sons, Joshua Wiggins of Atlanta and Jared Scott Wiggins (Sunny) of St. Marys; two grandchildren, Julianna Wiggins and Scarlett Wiggins, both of St. Marys; his father, Maurice Terrell Wiggins (Phyllis) of Leesburg; four sisters, Carole Strickland of Waycross, Sheryl Davis (Terry) of Brunswick, Sean Hunter (Mike) of Leesburg and Michelle Calhoun (Eric) of Leesburg; two brothers, Danny Wiggins (Missy) of Blackshear and Todd Kirkland (Lori) of Leesburg; a special niece, Mackenzie Strickland of Waycross; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.
A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 19, at Bible Heritage Church in Waycross. Burial followed in Greenlawn Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at Miles-Odum Funeral Home.
The family has requested that the 224th Joint Communication Support Squadron of the Air National Guard Unit and the Breakfast Club Sunday School Class at First Baptist Church of Kingsland serve as honorary pallbearers and should be at the church by 10:45 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Boy Scout Troop 208 of Kingsland, 11900 Abercorn Expressway, Savannah, GA 31419.
