WIGGINS -- James Wise Wiggins, Sr., M.D. passed away peacefully on September 9, 2009, in Billings, Montana at age 91. Born in Moriarty, New Mexico on January 11, 1918, he grew up in Estancia, New Mexico with his father James Hardy Wiggins, M.D.; mother Francis Price Wiggins; older brother Bennett; sister Mary; and baby brother Joe who died in childhood. His father was a frontier country doctor, a career to which Dr. Wiggins aspired early on. He graduated from New Mexico State University and Tulane University School of Medicine, and went on to become an officer in the Army Air Force Medical Corps, stationed in Biloxi, Mississippi. During this service, he met and married his loving wife of 50 years, Verna Elizabeth Light. He returned with his family to Albuquerque where he practiced for more than 40 years as an obstetrician/gynecologist caring for the women of New Mexico.

He continued to mentor medical residents and students long after he retired from practice. His wife Verna passed away in 1996. He was reacquainted with a cherished friend from medical school days, Beth Sumner, of Jacksonville, Florida who became his loving wife in 1997. He rediscovered his love of the clarinet, and he and Beth enjoyed many years of dancing and travel until her death in 2008. He then resided with family in Billings, Montana. Dr. Wiggins' respect for the lives and dignity of others throughout his life has been a caring and loving example for his children and grandchildren. His family will always hold these values close to their hearts and try to pass them on to future generations; they will miss his smile, quiet spirit and touch that enriched everyone's day, to the last days of his life. He is survived by his sons Bruce and wife Lorna of Albuquerque, Carl and wife Jill of Grass Valley, CA, Jim, Jr. and wife Nancy of Billings, MT, Bob and wife Kym of Anchorage, AK; daughter Carol Jane of Anchorage, AK; Beth's family, Bill and Pam Sumner of Wewahitchka, FL and a village of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

His last assignment before retiring in 1968 was Military Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force for Research, Development and Space. This led to many years of diplomatic experience in Washington D.C. and Europe. After retiring from the Air Force as a full Colonel he was hired as Manager of Hughes Aircraft International in Germany where he also served on the US Ambassador's Business Advisory Group and served three terms as President of American Businessmen's Club, Bonn, Germany. When Woody and Meg moved back to Albuquerque they established their own business which they operated for 26 years until Meg's death in 1996. As a businessman in Albuquerque Woody became involved as a leader in many organizations including the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors; Albuquerque Chapter Air Force Association, President 1978-86; the Board of Directors of the Better Business Bureau of New Mexico 1982 - 1997; the Governor's Business Advisory Council - 1991; the Rotary Club of Albuquerque, member since 1974, President in 1980; fundraiser for the Lobo Club for 30 years, member of Heights Cumberland Presbyterian Church for 30+ years.

Distinguished Citizen's Award 1984, induction to the Military Hall of Honor of the University of Texas, Arlington 1987, Rotary Living Legend 1990, the Steve Schiff Award 1999-2000 by the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce, and named as a Distinguished Alumnus of the University of Texas, Arlington 1999. During his long life, Woody established lasting friendships wherever he went, was known for his quirky sense of humor, and his leadership qualities. He leaves behind, for all who knew and loved him, many wonderful memories.
