Paul Michael Wiggins III, also known as ‘P3’ by his family, passed away Sunday, January 5, 2020, in San Tan Valley, Arizona, at the tender age of 18.
Paul was born on a beautiful Colorado summer day, June 13, 2001, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The first-born son of Paul Wiggins Jr. and Cynthia (Rothbard) Wiggins, P3 was a gregarious and adventurous child, full of excitement and curiosity about the world around him.
In early 2005, the family moved to Arizona, and Paul loved the new large family, full of cousins on both sides. P3 grew into a kind-hearted young man with a wonderful sense of humor. When he was with a group of friends, he had everyone laughing. He loved animals and considered Tazzy, Fritz & Decker among his best friends. P3 loved being a big brother; whether it be protecting his sister, or torturing his brother, he took his role quite seriously.
Paul is survived by his parents, Paul Jr. of Chandler and Cynthia of San Tan Valley, as well as his younger sister Perry and younger brother Pearson. He also left behind grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins, all of whom will miss this sweet young man.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, January 17, 2020 at Gilbert Memorial Park, 2100 E. Queen Creek Road, Gilbert, AZ, 85297.
