Jim was born February 10, 1965 in Indianapolis, Indiana the son of James William and Mary Ann Bearnard Wiggs. He attended elementary school and graduated from high school in Great Bend, Kansas. He then attended and graduated from Benedictine College, Atchison, KS, then South Dakota State in Brookings, SD and University of Washington, Seattle, WA. Jim was especially revered by family, friends, and colleagues for his remarkable intellect. He was a great lover of learning, studying chemistry, math, and philosophy as an undergraduate, completing a master’s degree in mathematics, and doctoral work in computational physical chemistry. He taught himself the computer programming and information technology skills that became his ultimate profession, in which he consulted internationally. Those who knew Jim also delighted in his abundant humor, gentle kindness, and boundless generosity with all of his gifts. During his life he was a gun enthusiast, actor, martial artist, voracious reader, movie lover, and IT entrepreneur, a true renaissance man for whom all of life was endlessly fascinating. He loved his family and friends deeply and without fail, and his absence has left the world a little darker. Survivors include his mother, Mary Ann Wiggs, Atchison, KS; two brothers, Adam (Anita) Buhman-Wiggs, Atchison, KS; John (Carol) Lahey-Wiggs, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; a sister, Chala (Tom) Wiggs-Lechner, Watertown, SD and seven nieces and nephews.
