Denny Rigdon

A memorial service for Denny Rigdon, 90, will be held on Saturday June 15, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. at Rose Neath Southside.  A visitation will be held from 12:00 p.m. until the time of service.  Officiating the service will be Pastor Scott Ethridge, Reverend Ric Humphries, Brother Andrew Brewster, and Reverend Charles Logan. 

Denny was born on June 12, 1933 in Coushatta, Louisiana and passed away peacefully on April 21, 2024 at his home in Shreveport, Louisiana

He served in the Koren War as a member of the Air Force. 

Denny was “the man at the top”, that people went to for help of any kind. Whether it was repairing a vehicle, bringing food to needy families or taking money from his own pocket to help someone with a need, people knew they could always depend on him.  He came by the name ‘dependable Denny’ honestly.  He truly had a heart to help people.

Denny was a Commercial driver.  Throughout his driving career he drove over a million and a half accident-free miles.  Even after he acquired his own company he continued to drive because he loved the job. He also had great satisfaction in providing employment for men who needed help caring for their families.

Denny is preceded in death by his parents, Green and Vesta Rigdon; brothers, Bobby Rigdon, Jackie Rigdon and Wayne Rigdon; sisters, Evelyn Rigdon, Louise Stothart, Lucille Hendricks, and LaNell Dean.  He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Darlene; sons, Dennis Rigdon (Cindy) and Roy Rigdon; daughter, Betty Paro (Glen); step-daughter, Crystal Meyer (Anthony); grandchildren, Amelia Rigdon, Amanda Brooks (Tom), Angie Orton and Isaac Poppell; great-grandchildren, Austin Orton (Rachael), Colin Orton, Ezra Brooks, Silas Brooks, Evelyn Brooks and Naomi Brooks; great-great-grandchildren, Miles Orton and Jonah Orton; sister, Eudeen Murphy and brothers, Sammy Rigdon and Jerry Rigdon (Susan).

Honorary pallbearers George Methvin, Lt. Col. Kenneth F. Wyzywany (Retd), Francis Wyzywany, Isaac Poppell, Anthony Meyer, Sean McCullaugh, Pete Resler and Jerry Rigdon.

The family wants to express their deepest gratitude to Dr. Muralidhar and nurse Jennifer; the Superior Hospice staff that took excellent, loving care of Denny, as well as Mrs. Julie Edwards for sitting with him for many, many hours.
