John (known as Jack)
was born and raised in Lakewood, N.Y. to William and Justine Wigley. After
graduating from high school, he went on to play three years of professional
baseball before serving two years in the military, where he was trusted
enough to have security clearance at the Pentagon.
After receiving his bachelor's degree in mathematics at U.C.L.A., he went
on to teach and coach 34 wonderful years at La Jolla Country Day School
before retiring in 1996. Jack's passions were coaching, spending time
on the golfcourse, e-mailing family and friends, watching ESPN and watching
his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren excel in athletics
and in life.
He will be extremely missed by his wife of 55 years, Carolyn, his four
children, Joni, Jodi, Jeff and Jeri, his grandchildren, his great-grandchildren,
his extended family and friends all over the world.
In celebration of his life a memorial will be held on Friday, June 17,
at La Jolla Country Day School, 4-Flowers Theater, at 2:00 p.m. In lieu
of flowers, a donation in his name to your local hospice organization
would be appreciated.
