Blake Rigsby, 23, of Orange, was brought to the Lord on the evening of Wednesday, January 22, 2014. A Celebration of Life will be held at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, January 29, 2014, at Cowboy Church on FM 1078 in Orange. A gathering of family and friends will begin one hour prior to the service. Born in Beaumont on January 27, 1990, Erik was the son of Michael I. Rigsby and Ragena L. (Kress) Rigsby. Preceded in death by his grandparents, Ralph and Eva Kress, Erik is survived by his parents, Michael and Ragena Rigsby; brother, Michele A. Rigsby; and grandparents, Earl and Avis Rigsby. He spent his childhood in Dayton, Texas and moved to Orange, Texas at the age of 17. He developed an undeniable interest in mechanics from his father from race cars, motorcycles, to ATVs. This is what led him to his jobs as a mechanic, working for Revon Craig (Motorcycleman), and his job as a Painter for Brock Industries. He was very intelligent and left this life at too young of an age. He will be greatly missed by all and will forever be in our hearts. Arrangements and cremation was held under the direction of Claybar Funeral Home in Orange.
