2007 from Pittsburgh, PA.
For the last 11 years he was an active volunteer at the Boothbay Railway Village, as a steam train engineer (which had been his childhood dream!) and conductor. Tom was a member of the Brunswick Church of Christ and delivered the opening prayer each Sunday, an avid reader, debater and cigar aficionado. Always ready to discuss politics, how things were in his day, and Pittsburgh Steeler Football he frequently could be heard near and far yelling at the TV screen and arguing the last play called by Coach Tomlin. He was a great debater and took great pride in choosing the other side just for the pure joy of the argument.

Tom is survived by his son, Thomas Wriggins IV and wife Alana; daughters, Whitney Wriggins Siconolfi and husband Pete and Jamie Wriggins Huntington and husband, Craig.
