Michael (Zig) Zeigler, 64 of Canton, MS passed away peacefully with family by his side at Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland, MS on Tuesday, September 10, 2019. He is now cancer free and pain free in the loving arms of Jesus. He was born on March 10, 1955 in Lexington, MS to Billy and Mary Ann Zeigler.
He was a 1974 graduate of Central Holmes Academy and a 1979 graduate of Ole Miss. He worked over 30 years in the foodservice industry until his retirement in 2013. He was a member of First Baptist Church in Canton. Mike was a proud Ole Miss fan and a devoted “Pop Pop” to his precious grandchildren.
Mike loved people and he never met a stranger. He was always ready to share a story or hear a new one. He loved to hunt, fish, metal detect, CB radios, electronics, and was known to frequent certain Flea Markets. Of course, his favorite past time was Facebook.
He was preceded in death by: parents, Mary Ann Mayo Zeigler and William Lewis Zeigler; brother, Ricky Lee Zeigler; and grandson, Luke Edward Hales.
Mike is survived by his wife of 42 years, Brenda Pentecost Zeigler; Son Stephen Zeigler (Emily) of Leesburg, MS; Daughter Lee Ann Hales (Mark) of Odenville, AL; Grandchildren Ansley Zeigler, Will Zeigler, Jack Hales and Ruby Kathryn Hales.
