Roy A. Wiegand
Age 75, of Bradford Woods, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 20, 2021. Born January 28, 1946, son of the late William and Bertha (May) Wiegand. Beloved husband of Vicki (Gwynn) Wiegand, whom he married on Aug. 24, 2003; loving father of Pamela Wiegand (Michael) Green, and Ivy (Vanessa) LaBrie; grandfather of Ellie, Vandyn, Raina, and Pearl; brother of Jane (Jim) Reickert, and Carol (the late Howard) Smith, among so many other loving family members and friends.
Roy will be lovingly remembered for his quick wit, entertaining personality, and loving nature. Although very quiet at times, all the world was his stage, which he exemplified by his love of acting, directing, and writing. He was a man of God, who asked for little and gave a lot. He honorably served our country in The United States Army First Calvary Division during the Vietnam War, where he received several decorations. His service early in life sparked his lifelong love of studying history, especially Civil War battles.
Roy was passionate towards those he loved and was known to have friends for life. Many of his most cherished times were spent on a golf course with his friends, or on a beach with his wife and dog, Coco.
A Memorial Service will be held at Ascension Lutheran Church in McCandless on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 11 am, followed by interment at the National Cemetery with full military honors. With respects to Covid protocol at the church, and cemetery, family and friends are asked to RSVP to Vicki if you plan to attend services for Roy.
