PIKE COUNTY, MS (WLBT) -

The Pike County coroner passed away Friday morning. Percy Pittman had been very sick lately and was in and out of the ICU. 

Percy Pittman served the community for over 25 years as coroner.

Pike County Sheriff Kenny Cotton said that he meant a lot to the communities he served and will be greatly missed.

Sheriff Cotton released a statement on impact Pittman made on the community and in his life and career.

Percy Pittman served the people of Pike County for 25+ years.  I would guess he went through 6 terms as coroner.  He was my hero and he had a big impact on my career and who I am today.  I remember first meeting him in 1983 when I had first joined the McComb police force.  He encouraged me into the man I am now.  Percy Pittman loved serving people.  He had a big heart and the entire Pike County community is grieving now
