Bright Sunshine Monday With Tears




 This morning I'm not feeling the best. A friend that I grew up in my entire life has past on. His name is Steve. Him & I went to school in our entire grade school life and though we didn't stay when we hit our high school life we still continued to be friends and we both lived and worked in Amherstburg. His age is 66, just like my mine. He was a great guy and I'll miss him and so will so many other people. RIP my good friend.

                                                                    IN MEMORY

                                            Steve Wigle

                                                           1949 - 2015

 

Obituary of Steve Wigle

A husband, father, uncle, papa and friend to all
Steve passed away peacefully Saturday morning with his family by his side. He was a devoted son to Ruth and James Wigle, loving brother to Wendy, Dan and Michael. Uncle to Wes, Katherine, Gordon, Stephanie, Victor, Adam, Tammy and Terra.
Since 1989 when we first opened By The Wayside (what an interesting name for a butcher shop) until November 2015 Steve worked day and night to turn his passion into a business. He was a gifted butcher but his real passion was making other people happy. Wigle's Gourmet Meat became Steve’s second home, his staff (past and present) was his second family and his customers were all his friends.
Steve was a family man first. Loving and devoted husband to Margo for 45 years. Father, hero and best friend to Dana, Colin, Kristy Bouchard (Robert). Proud papa to his favourite people, Alaire, Jake, Avarie, Jayci, Steven and Shelby.
A member of Brentwood for 33 years, Steve lived his life in service to others and had a heart big enough to love an entire community. We are grateful for all the support and prayers and memories sent during this very difficult time and we will proudly carry on his legacy.

                             ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you can see there won't be any jokes and photos today. I'll try to get back into the regular blog later on in the week. Sorry with this but due to the respect I had for Steve this is all I have for today.
