Manuel McCargish, age 93 of Crab Orchard, passed away on August 3, 2022, peacefully at home.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 71 years, Arneda, his granddaughter, Lauren Dawson, and his 6 siblings, Matthew, Marion, Melvin, Minnie, Martha, and Margaret, of which he was the youngest. Those left to cherish his memory are his daughter Rita Baughman and husband Joe, son Alan McCargish and wife Terri; grandchildren Adam McCargish and Hannah Roudebush, and husband Jay; great grandchild, Justin Wheeler; many nieces and nephews, and a loyal dog, Scooter.
Manuel was a retired coal miner and a proud member of the UMWA. He never met a stranger, and his outgoing personality and comforting smile made him many friends over the years. He was always there to lend a helping hand to those who needed it. He was a member of the Oak Hill #120 Masonic Lodge. Masonic brothers will serve as pallbearers and perform funeral rites.
Special thanks to Hospice of Southern WV for their caring and supportive help. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice or the Raleigh County Humane Society.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, August 9, 2022, from 11:30-1:30 at Blue Ridge Funeral Home, followed by graveside rites at 2 PM, Sunset Memorial Park.
