Jonathon A. Midgett

Posted By obits On July 25, 2020 @ 10:07 am In Obituaries,Outer Banks | 50 Comments

Jonathon Allen Midgett, 38, of Kill Devil Hills NC went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. He was born at the Edenton, NC hospital on May 26, 1982: a true native to our local community.

From a young age, Jon found a love for all things outdoors which continued strongly through his life. Jon was most at peace on the bridge of his boats as the sun rose quietly and he would head out to the Gulf. He also possessed a deep passion for hunting and preserving as much of his long line of local heritage. He took deep pride in learning from those before him and sharing to anyone new. Jon was a hard worker, meticulous to detail and took great pride in all he did. He was a loving father, husband, son, and friend – always willing to lend a helping hand.

Jonathon is survived by his two sons, Nicholas and Daniel Midgett: his wife, Nicole Arko Midgett: two daughters, Piper Midgett and Cassiddy Mahaffee; mother, Rhonda White Midgett; grandmother, Shirl Caleo; half-sister, Laura Beth Mann (Rex); and many aunts and uncles.

A celebration of Jonathon’s life will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 12, 2020, at Liberty Christian Fellowship, 244 Williams Drive, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that Jonathon’s life be honored by donations that can be made to Outer Banks Dare Challenge, PO Box 123, Wanchese, NC 27981, online at outerbanksdarechallenge.org.

Twiford Funeral Homes, Outer Banks is assisting the family with arrangements. Condolences and memories may be shared at www.TwifordFH.com.

Condolence from Missy Newman on July 27th, 2020 1:54 pm

I will always remember Jonathan as a cute little 6 year old with his toboggan pulled down tight as he got on the school bus every morning with Rhonda watching from the porch. He spent the day with me in a First Grade classroom at Manteo Elementary for a year. As an adult he still called me “Miss Newman.” My sincere condolences go out to Rhonda and family. He has gone on way too soon. Cherish the memories he left with us. Tell stories of his adventures to his children. He will live forever in your hearts.
