LANCASTER: Jon C. Figgins, Sr., 67, of Lancaster, OH, passed away peacefully, June 7, 2013 at the Pickering House in Lancaster.
In his life, what made him most happy of all was to be associated with his family and faithful, loving friends at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. He always urged others to study the Bible. Showing spiritually interested ones where the Tetragrammaton occurs in the Scriptures and its importance was very vital for him.
Jon retired in 2002 as a Business Administrator with the State of Ohio, Southeastern Correctional Institution.
He is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Bonnie (Bennett) Figgins; five sons, Jon Jr. (Debbie) of Sunbury, OH, Robert K. of Lancaster, Roger D. II (Sarah) of Rabun Gap, GA, Jeffery Adam (Jennifer) of Patzcuaro, Mexico, Jack K. II (Jenn) of Delaware, OH; and two daughters, Amy J. (Tony) Arnett of Corbin, KY and Sarah R. (Derek) Navratil of Columbus, OH; nine grandchildren, Mackinzie, Weston, Ava, Sebastian, Katelyn, and Kaleigha Figgins, and Zander, Blaise and Leila Navratil; also surviving are his four brothers and two sisters, Roger (Anne) and Terry (Annie) of Punta Gorda, FL, Donna (Bud) Seibert of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Kenny (Helga), Cheryl (PJ) Sheridan and Ted (Julie) all of Lancaster.
He was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth Figgins, mother, Frances Figgins and sister-in-law, Ruth Figgins.
Caring cremation has taken place. Memorial services will be held Saturday, June 15, 2013, 1:00 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 1051 Sugar Grove Rd., Lancaster. Brother Mike Doss will officiate.
