Floyd Wigfield Obituary, Death – After learning of Floyd Wigfield’s demise, each and every one of us has been overcome with an enormous level of grief. Floyd Wigfield was a veteran who served in the armed forces and was a member of the 4th Infantry Division. He was one of the oldest soldiers of the Ivy Division who had survived for long time; having reached the age of 104, he was among the oldest troops. He would have been one of the older men in the division if he had participated. He was one of the very few veterans of the Ivy Division to have survived for such a lengthy stretch of time. He had served in the division.
Company G of the 22nd Regiment was where Floyd served during his service in the military. During this period, Floyd was serving his country in an active capacity. On D-Day, he was able to make a safe landing on Utah Beach; but, in the days that followed, shrapnel from the opposing troops badly harmed him, and as a result, he was had to be hospitalized as a result of his injuries. After the war was over, he went back to school and eventually found work in the electrical industry. He was an electrician. 2019 marked the year that he was awarded the Legion of Honor medal by the French government in honour of his “bravery and valor” in “putting an end to a war and freeing a continent.”
This was done as a sign of our appreciation for his actions in 2018, and it was received well. The citation includes the phrase “bravery and fortitude to end a war and free a continent,” which sums up the qualities being cited. In addition, this phrase was a part of the phrase “bravery and fortitude to free a continent.” Floyd, It is my honest hope and prayer that you may, at some point in the not-too-distant future, be able to find the peace and contentment that you so justly deserve.
