Erik Blake Rigsby, 23, of Orange, was brought to the Lord on the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 22. A Celebration of Life will be held at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, at Cowboy Church in Orange. A gathering of family and friends will begin one hour prior to the service.

Born in Beaumont on Jan. 27, 1990, Erik was the son of Michael I. Rigsby and Ragena L. (Kress) Rigsby.

Preceded in death by his grandparents, Ralph and Eva Kress, Erik is survived by his parents, Michael and Ragena Rigsby; brother, Michele A. Rigsby; and grandparents, Earl and Avis Rigsby.

He spent his childhood in Dayton, Tx., and moved to Orange, at the age of 17. He developed an undeniable interest in mechanics from his father from race cars, motorcycles, to ATVs. This is what led him to his jobs as a mechanic, working for Revon Craig (Motorcycleman), and his job as a Painter for Brock Industries.

He was very intelligent and left this life at too young of an age. He will be greatly missed by all and will forever be in our hearts.

Arrangements and cremation was held under the direction of Claybar Funeral Home in Orange.
