John David Pigott, Sr.

August 8, 1947 ~ August 28, 2021 (age 74)


John David Pigott, Sr., 74, of Wallace, WV, went to be with the Lord on Saturday morning, August 28, 2021 at his residence. John was born in Clarksburg, WV on August 8, 1947.  Son of the late Charles Alfred and Mary Virginia (Wable) Pigott. 

In addition to his parents, John was preceded in death by his son, John Pigott, Jr., who passed suddenly in March of 2021 and his sister, Rebecca Taylor. 

John is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Emily and their four daughters; Donna Clifton and husband, Jim of Tulsa, OK, Kim Howe and husband, Melvin of Lumberport, WV, Tammy Tucker and husband, Jimmy of Shinnston, WV and Missy Russell of Shinnston, WV.  Six grandchildren; Sean Vincent, Megan Martin, Cody Luchuck, Zach Howe, Sami Jo Luchuck, and Ervin Luchuck, Jr.  Three great grandchildren; Easton, Adaleah and Presley. Three brothers; Mike, Charles and Jim Wable. Two sisters; Kathy Stackpole and Dian Luke.

John was a member of the Wallace Fire Department.  He enjoyed being with them and loved lending a helping hand in anything that was needed. 

The biggest treasure in John’s life was his family.  He loved spending time with them.  Even when he wasn’t feeling the greatest, he brought joy and laughter to all those around him.  He loved to cook and grill.  He liked creating his “secret sauces” that always tasted so good!  John loved the holidays, especially Christmas.  Decorating the tree with his family.

John was a man of few words but his smile said it all.  He will sadly be missed by all who were fortunate to know him. A gentle soul with a big heart. He leaves many precious memories that will always be cherished. God must’ve needed another Angel to keep watch.

“Our family will never be the same.”

At the request of the family, there will be no public service.  In keeping with John’s wishes, cremation service will be provided by Dorsey Funeral Home.
