He served in the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps in Iran during World War II. After 3 years of active duty, he returned to Millinocket and married his sweetheart, Joyce Morgan on March 14, 1946.

Wiggie loved the outdoors and spent much of his life in the outdoors, and writing and talking about Maine Outdoor Recreation. He was a Maine Master Guide since 1950, and was a life member of the National Rifle Association and the Maine Trappers Association.
