Jimmy was born October 17, 1944 in Levelland, Texas, to Horace and Nellie Pigg. He retired from John Deere and had lived in the Brazos Valley for over 20 years. When he wasn’t chasing around his grandson, Quinten, and watching his sporting events, Jimmy enjoyed spending time on a cruise ship. Jimmy and his loving wife, Gay, had enjoyed over 50 cruises together, and it’s what he enjoyed the most.

Survivors include his loving wife Gay; son and daughter-in-law, Joel and Jennifer Pigg; brothers, Jackie Pigg, Johnny Pigg, Harold Pigg; sisters, Betty Redden, Pat Lightsey; grandson, Quinten Pigg; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, or to the Shriners Children’s Hospital.
