L.C. was born March 26, 1954, in North Carolina to the late William Alexander Diggs and the late Helen Yow Diggs. He was preceded in death by his parents.

He enjoyed riding the tractors and hauling hay as well as doing various work for people using his farm equipment. In his later years, he probably sold everyone there today some produce at one time or another, particularly watermelons, cantaloupes, mountain cabbage or apples. He dearly loved his daughter; Donna and his grandson was his pride and joy.
