Leslie Theodore Wiger

Died: Friday, November 23, 2012
Wiger, Leslie Theodore, 77, passed away on October 23rd, surrounded by the love of his family.

He was born on January 15th, 1935 in New Rochelle, New York, son of the late Leif and Tordis Wiger. He graduated from the City College of New York in 1958 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, but he quickly became a southern boy at heart when he married the love of his life, Chesley Neece Wiger, on October 14th, 1962. They have two daughters, Wendy Wiger (Bryan Yung) and Jennifer Wiger Frierson (David). But the real apples of his eye were his five grandchildren, Amber and Zane Theodore Yung and Kenna, Bayley and Catherine Frierson.

He also leaves to cherish his memory two brothers, Richard (Donna) and John (Else) Wiger as well as numerous brothers’ and sisters’-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends.

Les was active duty in the Corps of Engineers , U.S. Army for 20 years, serving in several different countries, always with his family by his side. He had reached the rank of Lt. Colonel when he retired. Following that, he worked at the Farley Nuclear Plant for 17 years, while adopting Blakely, GA as his second home. But his favorite years were the years that he spent in retirement; enjoying extensive trips abroad with Chesley and spoiling his grandchildren with his time and love.

There will be a service to celebrate his life on October 27th at 11:00AM at McDonalds and Son Funeral Home, 150 Sawnee Drive, Cumming, GA. In lieu of flowers, we suggest a contribution in his name to the following Norwegian Christian Home (a home for aging adults), 1250 67th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11219 or The Hope Lodge (a residence for cancer patients receiving treatment), 1552 Shoup Court, Decatur, GA 30033-4607

    It's always difficult to lose a loved one in death. But the bible promises at John 5:28 that "All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." So there will come a day when you will see your loved one again. If you have any questions. Please feel free to contact me at
