Zeffie Ray Brogan, age 76 of Campton, KY, formerly of Huntington and Logan, WV, entered peacefully into the Lord's rest in Jackson, KY with his daughter by his side on October 15, 2023.

Born April 28, 1947 to the late Posey N. and Ruby (Moore) Brogan at their home in Shamrock, Zeffie was the namesake of his maternal grandfather.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son John N. Brogan; wife Sharon (Davis) Brogan; brother Posey H. Brogan; daughter Sherry Pesola; and son-in-law Chris Carrere, with whom he made his home for seven years.

A 1965 graduate of Logan High School and a US Army Veteran, Zeffie spent his early years working at his family's Gulf Service Station at Shamrock and then as a diesel mechanic for McClean Trucking Company. He retired from Westmoreland Coal Company where he was employed as a certified electrician and welder.

Zeffie was a born-again believer who placed his faith in Jesus Christ and confessed Him as Lord and Savior and was buried with Him in believer's baptism. He was a member of the Central United Baptist Church on Holden Road.

As an outdoorsman, he enjoyed hunting; gardening; harvesting ginseng; camping; fishing; boating; and frog gigging. But being at home with and serving his family was what he loved doing most.

Zeffie will be remembered as a hard working family man with a humble and generous spirit; a pure and selfless heart; and an easy-going, endearing and humorous personality.

Those left to cherish his memory include his daughter and son-in-law Alecia (Lisa) and James M. Judd, with whom he made his home in Campton; grandson Johnathan Hubert of Huntington, WV; sister Betty Flint of Bluefield, WV; aunt Lassa Huges of Cave Creek, AZ; sister-in-law Mary Leigh Sparks of Hamlin, WV; in-laws: Rebecca Shaul, who blessed him by lovingly assisting with providing his care at home; James D. Judd of Louisa, KY; William and Dorthy Carrere of McConnell, WV; Scott Hubert of Delbarton, WV and Delphia Brotherton of Stuart's Draft, VA; as well as a host nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, October 21, 2023 at Akers-James Funeral Home. Services will be conducted by Pastor Lonnie Gore. Burial with military rites will follow in Highland Memory Gardens at Chapmanville. The family will receive visitors from 9 a.m. until the time of the service Saturday at the funeral home.

Serving as pallbearers will be Tommy Browning; Walter Browning; Johnathan Hubert; James M. Judd and Shawn Lucas. Honorary pallbearers will be Doug McElwain; John Parsley and Bobby Runyon.
