Michael Joseph Pigg, Jr

Michael J Pigg, Jr of Pacific, Missouri           03/27/2020

Michael is survived by his wife of 27 years, Jill Suzanne (Baker) Pigg, three daughters, Samantha, Mary Beth and Jaymee Pigg, one grandson, Jaxon, one sister Theresa Pigg and her husband Randy Bain, 4 nephews, 7 nieces, other relatives and many friends.

 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Michael J Pigg, Sr and Winifred ‘Wendy’ (Frick) Pigg and his grandparents Elmer & Jean (Tackaberry) Pigg and Ruth Ann (Hodapp) Spencer.

 

Born on 07/05/1968 in Kirkwood, MO to Michael and Wendy Pigg. The Piggs moved to Pacific in 1971 where Michael was raised and received his education through Meramec Valley School District.  He graduated from East Central College, receiving his certification in HVAC in 1996.  He enjoyed hunting, fishing, being outdoors, local government, a good argument, and a practical joke.

 

He married the love of his life on 03/20/1993 to Jill Suzanne Baker at the Gray Summit United Methodist Church in Gray Summit, MO.  This union was blessed with three daughters, Samantha Jeananne, Mary Beth, and Jaymee Lynn.  The second generation of this union was blessed in December 2018 with a grandson, Jaxon John Matthew.

 

Prior to his retirement, Michael owned, with his wife, Pigg’s Pets in Pacific for 17 years.  In his retirement, he adored each moment he shared with his grandson, Jaxon.  “Gunk, as Jaxon would say, and Jax were inseparable.

 

Michael’s commitment to his wife and family was unwavering. His commitment to the City of Pacific was admirable.   He served as Alderman in the City of Pacific for 10 years.  His commitment to his friends, even if he disagreed with you, stood strong.  The people he touched along the way in his lifetime will always remember him as someone who was willing lend a helping hand no matter the task.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Memorial services will be held at a later date.
