Dylan Taggart Wiggins
Dylan Taggart Wiggins passed away May 13, 2021 after a long battle with leiomyosarcoma. He was born in Logan, Utah February 4, 1980. His family returned
to Las Vegas when he was a baby. He graduated from Rancho High School in 1998. He played the saxophone and later joined the marching band and community band at UNLV so he could keep up with his saxophone skills.
He graduated as salutatorian from ITT Tech with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. He was a hard worker and worked most of his life in retail. He always enjoyed his jobs and made many friends at each one. Some of his friends called him Leppy short for Leprechaun.
Dylan loved music and enjoyed attending concerts.
One of his favorite things to do was to look up at the stars at night. Dylan was a fighter. He fought through serious health challenges his entire life. He survived leukemia, a bone marrow transplant, heart surgery, diabetes and years of hospital visits. He spent his last moments surrounded by his family. He was loving, selfless, and fiercely loyal.
Dylan is survived by his mother Lisa Wiggins, his brothers Aaron (Shanon), Brent (Nina), Jared (Julie), Dustin (Camille), Ryan (Sarah), his sister Lisa C. Wiggins, many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and his fiancé, Samantha Lemonds and her children Hadley, James and Jayme.
