Jeff Leggett

Willis Jefferson Leggett, called Jeff by his friends and family, was born in Zwolle to John D. Leggett and Zula Dykes Leggett on February 15, 1954. What a happy day for those who would grow to know and love him. Jeff passed away on April 29, 2017, at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans after a two-month battle to survive a severe heart attack that occurred on February 28. Jeff was the youngest of three children. He had a brother, Johnny B. Leggett, and a sister, Sherry, to help him learn important things like how to get out of the way and how to write on the walls. Jeff’s father worked as a manager for Nichols Department Stores, so Jeff had the opportunity to attend school and make friends in Natchitoches, Logansport, Winnsboro, and Zwolle. At one point, the family owned a gas station in Baton Rouge, where he attended high school. When the Leggett family moved back to Zwolle, Jeff met his future wife, Cara Parsons, at Zwolle High School.
