WIGINTON

Kevin Eugene Wiginton, age 59, was born on May 5, 1957, in Fort Worth, Texas to Travis and La Moyne Wiginton. After a lengthy battle with cancer, Kevin entered heaven on July 22, 2016, at 59 years, two months and 22 days old, surrounded by his wife and children.

Kevin knew from an early age that he wanted to become an Oklahoma State Trooper, after being inspired by OHP officers at Falls Creek Baptist Church Camp. He was a cadet in the OHP"s first Cadet Lawman Academy, one of the very first OHP Courtesy Patrolmen "Baby Bears," and was the first Cadet Lawman Academy cadet to become a Trooper. Kevin served the State of Oklahoma from June 14, 1978 to June 30, 2007. He worked 2,027 accidents, 30 of which included one or more fatalities, and he was hit bodily or in his unit 13 times. Kevin attended OU and served as the manager for the men's basketball team. He was a gifted drummer who played in the drum corps at Choctaw High School.

Kevin died peacefully, in his home, in the arms of his wife of 17 years, Michelle Heck-Wiginton, of Rolla, Missouri. His sons proudly celebrate their dad"s heavenly homecoming, after tenderly and lovingly helping to care for him while he was fighting cancer. Jeremiah Wiginton (28), of Noble, Oklahoma; Halston Heck (27) and his fianc"e, Adrianna Johnson, of Rolla, Missouri; and James (25) and Bethany Wiginton, of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Kevin"s selfless service spanned 30 years, but his love and care of his family and friends lasted a lifetime. Kevin was preceded in death by his mother, La Moyne Wiginton, and his younger brother, Kyle Wiginton. He is survived by his wife, sons, father, Pastor Travis Wiginton; brother, Craig Wiginton, wife, Joanna Wiginton and stepdaughter, Meg Brady; and Kristin Wiginton and her partner Sue Anderson; sister-in-law, Darr Wiginton, and niece Hailey Wiginton and nephew Travis Wiginton; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
