Ronald J. Riggle


1931 - 2011 Obituary Condolences
Ronald J. Riggle, of Wichita Falls, Texas, was taken home to be with his Lord on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2011.
The son of the late Irma and Lewis Riggle, he was born July 28, 1931, in Des Moines, Iowa. Ron was most recently employed with Manheim Dallas Fort Worth auto auction services for nine years. He spent 10 years serving his county in the Air Force. Upon discharge from the military Ron spent most of his years in sales of different sorts but was most well know throughout the state of New Mexico as "The Pistachio Man" for the Pistachio Tree Ranch. He was a loving father, grandfather and friend. Ron never met a stranger and gave anything he had selflessly.
He is survived by three daughters, Deborah Riggle, of Montana, Lucinda Smith and husband, Mel, of California, and Kimberly Harris and husband, Rex, of Wichita Falls; one son, Ken-Lee Pittman, of Burleson, Texas; seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
A small gathering of close family and friends to celebrate Ron's life will be held Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011, at Colonial Church in Wichita Falls. The family suggests contributions be made to the local hospice or Wichita Christian School, 4729 Neta Lane, Wichita Falls, TX 76302.
