James Roy Wiygul, III

James Roy Wiygul III was born January 15, 1965 and passed away November 13, 2021, just ten days after the death of his beloved mother Alice Geraldine "Jeri" Wiygul.

James Roy was an active young boy, playing with his dog Brownie and arm wrestling with his cousin Jason Jackson, who graciously let him win every time. He also participated in the local Special Olympics, winning several ribbons. A special thrill was steering his Uncle Bob Hensley's pontoon boat, with assistance from Uncle Bob of course.

He attended special education classes at Clinton Public Schools and was later home schooled by Miss Rose whom he adored. Miss Rose often commented on how smart he was and his amazing ability to understand situations, remember dates and problem solving.

James Roy was an extrovert, always smiling and laughing. He loved having a lot of people around him, country music, traveling to local sites, and watching football on TV. His favorite teams were the Ole Miss Rebels, or the Hotty Toddy's as he referred to them, and the New Orleans Saints.

He enjoyed receiving cards in the mail, especially musical ones, and everyone knew if they sent him a card it had to have a dollar or two in it which he saved to eat out at his favorite restaurants, Cock of the Walk and Crechale's. His friend, Kim Rehfeldt, sent postcards from around the world, which he treasured.

Everyone who ever met James Roy adored him and knew how much he was loved and cared for. God put special angels on this earth and we were lucky that he gave us one. Those of us who knew him the best will forever have a void in their life that will never be filled, however the memories of him will live on forever.

The Wiygul family wishes to thank Dr. Joseph Montgomery, Debbie Lovell also known as "Miss Rose", Dorothy Caston and Deborah Williams all of whom helped care for James Roy for many years. Each is like a family member to us.

Preceding James Roy in death were his maternal and paternal grandparents, his father James Roy Wiygul Jr, mother Alice Geraldine "Jeri" Wiygul and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Surviving family are sisters Rebecca Jenkins (Rick) and Deborah Stribling (Gerald), nieces Dr Jenna Stribling-Prater (Levi) and Brittany McHann (Brad), their children Maddox, Kennedy and Ruby McHann. Also surviving are several aunts, uncles and cousins.

Wright and Ferguson Funeral Home located at 106 Cynthia Street in Clinton, MS is in charge of funeral arrangements. Graveside services will be 11:00am, November 17th at Lakewood Memorial Park in Jackson, MS with burial to follow the service.
