He was a member of Bethel United Baptist Church and was honored to be a Deacon for 6 years. He loved the Lord and left a wonderful testimony. He retired from Goodyear after 35 years and made many lifelong friends during his career. He was married to the love of his life, his soul mate, his best friend and helper, Matheal, for 48 wonderful years. He was a devoted dad and pawpaw to his girls, grandchildren and great grandchildren who will miss his big bear hugs, squeezes and kisses on the forehead. It was not uncommon for anyone under 45 years old to call him pawpaw. He loved riding his tractor, watching Westerns, and taking the kids on golf cart rides around the street, or as he called it, the Frog Pond. He was most comfortable in a pair of jeans and T-shirt. He was a hard working man (of God) who was loved and respected by many.
He is preceded in death by his daughter: Sherri Wissler; parents: Jack and Zelma Pigg.
He is survived by his wife: Matheal Pigg; sister: Sharron (Hoyt) Hollis; children: Christy Pigg and Misty Pigg; grandkids: Shelby (Tim) Dingus, Katey Wissler, Abby Austin, Bailey Smith, Jayce Estes; great grandkids: Maci Dingus, Taylen Dingus, and Avery Dingus.
Pallbearers will be family and friends.
Honorary pallbearers will be Deacons of Bethel United Baptist Church, and the Men’s Sunday School Class.
The family will receive friends at the funeral home Friday from 6-8 pm.
