Rigby Hollingsworth, 78, passed away on Wednesday, July 27, 2016. A celebration of his life will
begin at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, July 29, 2016 in the sanctuary of First United Methodist Church of
Shreveport. Officiating will be Dr. Jonathan Beck. A reception will follow at the church.
Rigby was a native and lifelong resident of Shreveport. He served in the United States Marine
Corps as an airplane mechanic and was a co-owner of Midway Marine. Rigby loved deep sea fishing,
hunting, and all of God's outdoors. God blessed Rigby with many talents. There wasn't anything he
couldn't build or repair whether it was a piece of machinery or a human spirit. God has shown this
man great favor. There is not a person who met him that has walked away untouched by this man.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Auneese and Edward Hollingsworth; and brother, Edward
Hollingsworth, Jr. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Lyndell; daughter, Julie Davidson; son,
Craig Jones and wife, Cyndi; six grandchildren, Rebecca Carter, Stuart Davidson, Carmen Jones,
Caitlyn Jones, Cole Jones and Lainey Williams; and nine great-grandchildren.
The family requests that memorials be made to First United Methodist Church local ministry,
Providence House; Holy Angels or Common Ground, 4830 Line Ave., #117, Shreveport, LA 71106.
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Stewart Bundrick, M.D.
