Will D. "MOON" Pegues

August 27, 1936 — November 5, 2020

Will D. Pegues was born August 27, 1936, to the union of the late Henry and Lottie Pegues of Longview (Easton), Texas. He accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Post Oak CME Church. He was an active deacon at Bethel Baptist Church until he was no longer able to serve.

Will attended Easton Elementary and Ned E. Williams High School. He was a proud member of the graduating class of 1952. Will continued his education at Compton Junior College in Compton, California, and Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas. On October 21, 1957, he married his one true love, Bobbye Jean, and they have been inseparable since the day they met.
Will worked for many years in leadership positions with Texas Instruments and Texas Infotronics. The latter part of his working years was spent as an entrepreneur. He owned and operated Will’s Rib Rack in Austin, Texas. Later, he and his wife were the owners of an adult foster care home.
Will loved his family and talked about them every chance he had. His infectious smile, laughter, and willingness to help everyone will live on forever.

Will departed this life on Thursday, November 5, 2020. He is preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, Verbina Pegues Birdsong and Bernicia Pegues Williams, and one brother, Willis Henry Pegues. He leaves to cherish his memory his wife of 63 years, Bobbye J. Pegues; his son, Tony Powell (Shirley); a brother, Wilbert Lee Pegues (Etta) of Houston, Texas; grandchildren Choya Morrison (Kavanski) of Anna, Texas; Anthony Powell of Gladewater, Texas; five great-grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
