Thomas Williford ‘Tom’ Pedigo was born May 28, 1930 in Enid, OK. He left this world on Thursday, December 31, 2020 at the age of 90. “Our bodies are like tents that we live in here on earth. But when these tents are destroyed, we know that God will give each of us a place to live. These homes will not be buildings that someone has made, but they are in heaven and will last forever. 2 While we are here on earth, we sigh because we want to live in that heavenly home. 3 We want to put it on like clothes and not be naked. -2 Corinthians 5:1-3 CEV”
Tom lived at Vista Mesa Assisted Living in Cortez, CO. He was the only child of J.T. (Jack) and Neva Pedigo. He attended school at Sylvan in Pleasant View, CO where they lived. At the end of his high school years he moved to Marshall, OK to live with his Pedigo grandparents where he graduated. It was there that he met his wife, Ima Jean Beeby. They married at a courthouse in Aztec, NM on August 7, 1948. After marrying they moved to Pleasant View, CO. They had four children, Linda Davies (Ken), Max Pedigo (Lynn Kingery), Jon Pedigo (Susan, deceased), and Cindy Elliott (Mel).
Tom (Tommy) as he was known to friends and neighbors, farmed his entire working life until retirement. He was also a truck driver for the Crowley’s and Duncan & Sons in the off season. He was involved on the Pleasant View Fire Department Board and FSA Planning Board. He enjoyed fishing and boating. He and Ima would go to Miramonte Reservoir and Lake Powell. In his mid 40’s he started taking flying lessons. He purchased his own plane, a Beech Craft Bonanza. He flew for about five years before selling his plane. He thoroughly enjoyed that adventure.
Tom always had a sense of humor and that part of his personality stayed alive and well throughout his life. He had two well known sayings heard by all who cared for him. When he was growing up his grandmother “Mom Pedigo” would say “Old to quick and smart to late” and “You feel just as good as you think you do.” He truly admired and had great respect for Mom Pedigo.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents; a grandson; and daughter-in-law. He is survived by his wife, Ima Jean; his children; seven grandchildren, Kenny Daves, Toni McGuire (Keith), Shane Pedigo (Mona), Jennifer Pittman (Dan), Robin Pedigo, Cory Elliott (Krista), Candi Armstrong (Brandon); and ten great grandchildren, Dayton, Kenny, Kodi, Mollinee, Kilsee, Aidan, Austin, Kyler, Stetson, and Weston.
