Roy A. Wiegand

January 28, 1946 - April 20, 2021

Service: Thursday, May 13, 2021, 11 am; Ascension Lutheran Church


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. A live stream link will be available for those unable to attend.

Professional Arrangements Entrusted to Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to Ascension Lutheran Church, or Wounded Warrior Project.

    It is with shock and deep sadness to know that my Cousin Roy has passed. Though he lived in the East and I lived in California the fond memories of times spent with Roy will always be with me. He was a true gentleman and I always looked forward to the visits we were able to share. My deepest sympathies go to Vicki and her family but hope she gains comfort in knowing the Lord has welcomed him home.

    I would like to attend the memorial service for Roy Wiegand but don’t know how to contact Vicki Wiegand.

  • Neil Himber

    Roy was a dear friend. We grew up as neighbors and spent many hours playing pickup ball games in the neighborhood, listening to Kingston Trio albums , and in later years enjoying golf together. Margie and I express sincere sympathy to Vickie and family.

    Roy and I were in our first play together in 1988. We immediately became friends and have remained so for all these years. We shared the stage in quite a few shows over the years and always enjoyed the time of bonding while doing a show. For the two of us, that was an easy project.

    Roy was a wonderful, caring and giving man. He never had to prove his manhood, he had done that long ago in Vietnam. It was my great fortune to meet Roy, and my honor to call him friend. We have not seen much of each other over the last 10 or so years, but I will blame that on the distance between Pittsburgh and Gainesville Florida. We last saw each other a couple of years ago, but we picked up right where we left off, ribbing each other and laughing. It truly was my honor to call Roy a friend and I will miss him and his wonderful smile. knowing that we won’t see each other again on this earth is sad. I do look forward to the day we meet again in our Fathers Home.
    God Bless and Keep you Buddy. Break a leg.
