Obituary: William Briggs, 67, of Pentwater.
William “Bill” Leland Briggs, 67, died on August 22, 2021 at his Pentwater home.
Bill was born on November 26, 1953, one of six children to Wendell and Donna (Wise) Briggs. He graduated from Northview High School with the 1972 class. On April 22, 1978, he married his partner LuAnn Daggett. In addition to raising their two wonderful children, Bill was a hardworking handyman, bus driver, road construction worker and, most recently, director of facilities at Pentwater Public Schools for 12 years. In 2009 he finally retired.
Bill woke up early and spent his days doing construction projects, helping his pals, or spending time in the great outdoors. He loved hunting, fishing, gardening and camping at the UP, but most of all he loved being a grandpa. His grandchildren brought so much joy into his life and he always looked forward to spending time together.
Bill leaves behind his 43-year-old wife, LuAnn Briggs; Children Brad (fiancé Angela Chastain) and Angela (Jay) Brown; Grandsons, Kellyn Briggs, Coy Brown, and Wren Brown; Siblings, Tom (Joan) Briggs, Louann (Roger) Larsen, Sandy (Ken) Wyrick, Heidi (Stuart) Davey, and David (Dawn) Briggs; and many nieces, nephews and wonderful friends.
