May 28, 1934 - December 6, 2020
Leslie Thomas Riggin, age 86, of Felton, Delaware passed away at Christiana Hospital on December 6, 2020. Born in Lewes, Delaware, he is the son of the late Virginia Dill Satterfield and Thomas Harvey Riggin and his step-mom Dorothy Riggin. Les graduated from Laurel High School in the "Class of 1952". He spoke very fondly of his time at Laurel High and looked forward to attending the alumni gatherings. He retired from Worthy Bros Pipeline Corp of Wilmington. In his free time, he enjoyed flying with his friends as a recreational pilot. They would often fly out of state to explore and grab lunch or coffee. He was a rifle enthusiast who enjoyed meeting his friends at the range to practice, and by all accounts he was a pretty good shot. Les is survived by his son, Marc C. Riggin and his wife Cassandra Riggin of Charlottesville, Virginia; daughter, Melanie K. Riggin and her husband Richard van Dijk; grandchildren, Connor D. Riggin of Charlottesville, Virginia, Natasha van Dijk, and Tony van Dijk of Amsterdam, Netherlands; siblings, Tommy Riggin and his wife Carol of Laurel, Marilyn Johnson of Laurel, Penny Tyndall of Bethel, Jean Tubbs and her husband Jimmy of Laurel, and Elmer Riggin of Georgia. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother Phillip Riggin. A private family viewing will be held on Friday, December 11, 2020. A graveside service will follow at Laurel Hill Cemetery at 12:00 pm. Pastor Dean Perdue will officiate. Arrangements are in the care of the Hannigan, Short, Disharoon Funeral Home in Laurel, Delaware.
