Terrell Wayne Wiggins
Terrell Wayne Wiggins, 60, of Woodbine, died Saturday morning (Dec. 16, 2017) at his sister’s residence in Waycross after an extended illness.
He was born in Amarillo, Texas to Maurice Terrell Wiggins and the late Alice Geneva McBee Wiggins, but 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 apart 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.
He served his country for 30-plus years in the Georgia Air National Guard where he held multiple positions.
He is survived by a daughter, Amanda Hardy (Jeff), of Rockmart; two sons, Joshua Wiggins, of Atlanta, 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, Michelle Calhoun (Eric), of Leesburg; two brothers, Danny Wiggins (Missy), of Blackshear, Todd Kirkland (Lori), of Leesburg; a special niece, Mackenzie Strickland, of Waycross; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.
A funeral will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Bible Heritage Church in Waycross. Burial will follow in Greenlawn Cemetery.
Visitation will be held this evening from 6 until 8 o’clock 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. They are asked to be at the church by 10:45 a.m. Tuesday.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Boy Scout Troop 208 of Kingsland, 11900 Abercorn Expressway, Savannah, Ga. 31419.
