William D. Ledford, Sr. “Duggan”, 69, of Franklin, passed away Friday, April 24, 2020, at his residence. He was the son of the late Rev. Claude Ledford and Effie Byrd Ledford. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three brothers, Talmadge, Gilmer and Wilbur Ledford and one sister, Deborah Dicero.

Duggan is survived by his two children, Gina M. Gribble and husband, Johnny of Otto, NC and William D. Ledford, Jr. “Billy” and wife, Kristy of Franklin, NC; two beautiful granddaughters, Eden and Emily White, who were the pride and joy of his life; and the mother of his children, Mary Ruth Ledford of the home. He is also survived by two step grandchildren, Brandy Carnes and Cody Gribble; a great-granddaughter, Ellie Carnes, who he enjoyed when she came to visit; sisters, Kay Guy, Faye McCall, Kathy Henson and Glenda Evans, all of Franklin, and Carol Aiello of Seattle, Washington; a number of nieces and nephews also survive.

Duggan was a friend of all and was known to give anyone the shirt off his back if needed. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hiking, camping, fishing and ramp digging. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

I have vivid memories of uncle Doug teaching me how to play horseshoe across from grandma and grandpas house in the small field. He taught me how to feed the horses and was always so kind and funny. Being across the country from Franklin and all of my family is difficult and I regret not getting to know him more. Every story about him is positive and I'm fortunate to share his blood. Love you uncle Doug.
