"Heaven is rejoicing to welcome him home".
It is with sadness and heavy hearts that the family of Truman Diggins, Sr. informs you of his passing on Sunday, February 2, 2020 at age 74.
Truman was one of nine children born to the late Bennie F. and Dempsey L. (Johnson) Diggins.

He accepted Christ in 1976 at the Full Gospel Pentecostal Church in Seattle, WA and went on to serve in the prison ministry, street outreach and to minister as an elder and pastor.
He was the beloved husband of his "queen", Debra A. (Hardy) for more than 43 years. He will be remembered by his son, Truman Jr. of South Bend and daughter, Latrisa C. Diggins of Pleasant Prairie, WI
Truman treasured his grandchildren and great-grandchildren whose grieving seems to be endless. Siblings, OD (Cheri), Samuel (Ruth), Bennie C. (Pauline), Girtha, Ella and Norma also survive and him and grieves his loss.
He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Monroe, sisters, Shirley Carnes, Millie Bradford, son, Lyman D. Diggins and stepdaughter, Erica Hardy.
The Diggins family would like to thank Memorial Hospital for their excellent care along with EMS, SBPD and Sherman's 52 Beauty Supply owner.
