March 30, 1930 — December 25, 2021

Born in Manchester on March 30, 1930, David was the son of the late George T. Wiggin, Sr. and Bernice (Hilchey) Wiggin. Raised in Bedford he was a graduate of Manchester West High School, class of 1948. Following high school David was in the Marine Corps between the years of 1948-1952.

He coached and managed his son's baseball teams,loved attending high school football games with his son Jeff and his grandchildren's sporting events, dance recitals and talent shows.

David was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Notre Dame Football teams. He enjoyed reading the daily newspaper, loved country music and, until his recent health decline, spent many mornings driving himself to breakfast at his favorite restaurants, Bagg Family Lunch and Blakes Restaurant.
