Billy Wayne Rigsby


December 19, 1933 - April 5, 2014

Billy W. Rigsby walked into life eternal after a beautiful time with family and friends and the host of Heaven at McCall Hospice House.

Bill was a faithful servant of Jesus Christ, serving Him any and everywhere God gave him the opportunity, even as a door greeter at the Greer Walmart. He served as a church clerk, Sunday school teacher, church elder at Taylors Church of God. He served in the sanctuary choir at Praise Cathedral. His greatest service was as a husband to two Godly ladies and family. In his eighty years he never shrugged away from the challenges life gave him, and he left a high mark for others to follow and attain. He was a U.S. Air Force Veteran.

He was preceded in death by his first wife, Annette W. Rigsby. He is survived by his second wife of their home, Charlene Rigsby; two sisters, Linda Miner and husband, John of Kennesaw, GA, and Donna W. Rigsby of Columbus, IN; four sons and their wives, Wayne & Teri Rigsby of Greer, Ron & Jan Rigsby of Simpsonville, Michael & Faye Rigsby of Inman and, Jack & Lynn Rigsby of Greer; and one step daughter, Lee Ann Tyson of Spartanburg. His quiver was blessed full of arrows having 8 grandchildren, 2 step-grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, and 10 step-great- grandchildren.
