Obituary of Coleman Millard Driggers
Coleman (Butch) M. Driggers, JR., 79 of Charleston, South Carolina, passed peacefully in his sleep at home on Tuesday, January 17, 2023.
Butch was born and raised in Charleston. He went to Bishop England High School and received multiple educational certificates from Trident Tech. His outgoing personality and love of people served him well in his life. He went from manager at the American Tobacco Company, to owning his own business, Colony Upholstery Company, to becoming a successful sales manager in the automotive industry.
When it comes to Butch, the Frank Sinatra song My Way and the George Straight song Troubadour describe him best. Butch did everything his way. He lived a life that was full, had few regrets, he faced it all, stood tall, took the blows life delt and did it his way. Close to 80 Butch still felt and acted like he was 25 (most of the time). He enjoyed raising a little cain with the boys, honkey tonk and pretty women. He was right there with them – until the early morning hours.
Butch is preceded in death by his father, Coleman M. Driggers Sr, mother, Catherine Juanita Bendt Driggers, sisters, Barbara Jean Driggers and Dianne Driggers Jones and brother, Jackie Driggers.
Butch is survived by his 5 children: Mark A. Driggers, Charles (Chuck) C. Driggers, Donna Driggers Thomas, Melissa Driggers Roberts and Deborah (Debbie) Smith; 1 sister, Linda Driggers Evans. He also leaves behind 11 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews, and last, but not least, his Hunley’s Neighborhood Grill family.
Following his wishes, a private family Celebration of life will be held in lieu of a service.
