Roman Anthony Wiggins of Norfolk

Some people only dream of angels; we held one in our arms.

It is with heavy hearts that we honor and say goodbye to our sweet, perfect, baby boy.

Roman Anthony Wiggins, “Ro”, beloved infant son of Arianna Rivera and Terry Wiggins, Jr., of Virginia Beach, passed surrounded by love just 8 days later on Friday March 24, 2023. He was our small but mighty miracle that loved hand hugs.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by paternal grandparents Cynthia and Teo Ortiz; maternal grandparents Markco and Tina Yates, and Fidel and Kat Rivera, Jr.; paternal great grandparent Christine Cherry; maternal great grandparents Richard and Terri Whisman, Jr., Donna Shelar and Fidel Rivera, Sr.; paternal aunts Taelianna Walker and Lily Walker-Waring; maternal aunts and uncles Kaylyn Rivera, Cole Rivera, Cruz Rivera, and Tre Rivera, and other relatives and friends that love Roman very much. His tiny footprints will forever be etched in our hearts.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters NICU in Norfolk, Virginia for their incredible care provided to Roman and the entire family.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to CHKD NICU here.
