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.
Memorial contributions may be made to Lost Our Home Pet Rescue, 2323 South Hardy Drive, Tempe, AZ, 85282 (lostourhome.org).

Dear Paul and family….. I am so so sorry to read of the loss of your son, P3. I have only one daughter who is now 21. We have been through some traumas together and on our own and I nearly lost her when she was 16. I know what that felt like but I can only imagine what it would’ve been to lose her and it’s a horrible feeling. I pray that your family will find peace and healing and I know from other friends who have lost a child that it is something parents never really get over…my heart is with you and I’m sending my sincerest sympathies and love. Next time I sing, Paul, I will think of you and your family and your son and I will dedicate the heart felt music to your boy. May he be free from any suffering or pain and may you be reunited one day in spirit.
