Andrew Gregg Wiggin.

Andrew Gregg Wiggin, 63

May 17, 2024

Andrew Gregg Wiggin, 63, formerly of Concord, passed away peacefully at his home in Scottsville, Virginia, on May 3, 2024, after a four-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Andy’s children and his wife were by his side when he went home to be with the Lord.

Andy was born on January 30, 1961, to Alice Bemis Wiggin and Richard L. Wiggin II. Andy attended Concord elementary and middle schools and graduated from Concord-Carlisle High School in 1979. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Springfield College and his Juris Doctor from Regent University of Law.

In his distinguished career as a defense attorney, he represented 5,000 clients, maintaining a high rate of success, including many felony reversals. Legendary for scrutinizing complex cases, finding overlooked issues, and confidently confronting opposition, Andy was sought and appointed by all levels of Virginia courts for problematic cases. After closing his Chesapeake, Virginia, law practice in 2015, Andy wrote his novel, “A Warm Day at the South Pole.”

Andy is survived by his wife, Cathy, whom he met in high school, and later fell in love with and then married in July 2013. He is also survived by his beloved children from a previous marriage, Daniel Gregg Wiggin (Lauren), and Victoria Elizabeth Wiggin. Being called “Papa” by his three grandchildren, Lincoln James Wiggin, Haven Elizabeth Wiggin, and Weston Hayes Wiggin inspired him to fight hard against this tough cancer. Andy also leaves behind two stepchildren, Brennan Patrick O’Donnell and Riley LeeAnn O’Donnell, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Andy was a caring friend to old and new friends alike. In his final weeks and days, he would make a point to pray for others. He had tremendous faith and being a blessing to others in his final days was at the forefront in his mind. Much of his life was dedicated to furthering the Kingdom of God, and he used every opportunity to share the Gospel with friends and strangers.

A celebration of Andy’s impactful life will be held on Saturday, June 1,, at 2 p.m. at Calvary Chapel Fluvanna, 2772 Thomas Jefferson Parkway, Palmyra, Virginia.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, June 29, at 10 a.m. at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, 361 Bedford Street, Knoll Section. 

In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to the Calvary Chapel Fluvanna School, 2772 Thomas Jefferson Pkwy, Palmyra, VA 22963.
