Raymond E. Wigley
Published: March 22, 2011
Services for Raymond "Ray" Earl Wigley, 61, of Temple are pending with Harper-Talasek Funeral Home in Temple.
He died Sunday, March 20, in a local nursing home.
He had a hard life. Suffered from juvenile diabetes and had his legs amputated when he was 36 years old. He was also legally blind. He had a room like a small apartment and he would roll around in his wheelchair and he could use his fryer, microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator and could tape cd's. Some of these things were hard for me and I can see....I was always amazed. Our Mom took care of him until the last 3 years of her life then against her wishes she had to put him in a Nursing Home. She went over everyday and sat with him until she couldn't because of her illness. After her death my Aunt Gayla would help and take him things he wanted. He had an infection from complications of diabetes and died of sepsis on what would have been Mom and Dad's 63rd wedding anniversary.
I was told he was having a conversation with Mom before he died...They will both be happy to be together.
