Our sincere sympathy goes out to you all. Mr. Wivall was a wonderful person who enjoyed sharing his opinions on sports and politics. He always made us feel welcome when we dropped by to pick up our packages. We will miss him and his many delightful stories.

Cherish the precious memories of your father (grandfather, uncle and friend) and draw strength from one another over the coming days as you reflect back on the good times you shared in his life.

May the sunshine light your window and friends come to your door and every day that passes ease your sorrow more.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you all......Dave & Jackie

Where there is love there is life.
Indira Gandhi

What can be said about this gentle man? From his words of wisdom to his unflinching love of his late wife Malinda, to his pride in his children to his passion for any sports team containing the word Detroit, to his dedication to his country and those he served along side of, to his golf handicap (not exaggerated in anyway, I'm sure), to his great sense of humour and infectious laugh....he will be missed by all who knew him.
Rest in peace Mr. Wivell for a life well lived.
