Virgil Andrew Segrest I, of Spurger, was born January 3, 1943 to parents Virgil Luther and Andy Lea Segrest. Virgil returned to his Heavenly home April 13, 2022. Virgil was the best husband, Daddy, brother, and Pa. He loved his family more than anything, especially his wife of 55 years, Linda. He was a shining example of sacrifice and dedication to the ones he loved. He taught his children the importance of hard work and always led by example.
Virgil was a graduate of Spurger High School and served in the Army before marrying his sweetheart in August of 1966. Virgil had a love for cars, old trucks--especially old Chevy’s--, and basketball. If the UConn Lady Huskies were on, he could be found in front of the TV cheering them on. He was an all-time kidder and couldn’t live without his Dr. Pepper. Virgil was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
