Obituary

James Chrisman Biggers, 72, died, Thursday, February 27, 2020 at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Toledo, OH.

Jim, or endearingly known as Pig, was a graduate of West High School, where he played football, and after attended The Ohio State University.  He worked at Columbus Distributing for 25 years and then owned a neighborhood pub, appropriately named “The Pig Tail Tavern”.  Jim was able to take an early retirement and lived in his beloved Florida, specifically Panama City Beach, where he was one block from the ocean.  After several years he returned to Toledo, OH to spend more time with his daughter and her family, while making regular trips to Atlanta to visit his son and his family. 

Walks in the park, vegetable gardening, golfing, and watching Ohio State football were his favorite pastimes.  He was a kind, fun-loving, approachable person who could make friends with just about anyone.  Often the life of the party, extremely witty with his jokes, and a pleasure to be around.  He was a loving father and longtime friend to many and will be dearly missed.

He leaves his daughter Jessica Biggs and her husband Jeff Barnesky and her children Brad, Matt and Ally; son James Biggers II and his wife Jeannie and their children Andrew and Brady.  Siblings William (Bev) Biggers, Robert (Alice) Biggers, John, deceased (Abbey) Biggers,  Barbara (Mike, deceased) Cronin, and Tom Biggers.  Parents deceased William C and Barbara Biggers.  His cousins and many nieces, nephews and friends.

A celebration of Jim’s (Pig’s) life will be held Saturday, March 7th with visitation from 1:00-3:00 and a memorial service immediately following at Jerry Spears Funeral Home, 2693 W Broad St., Col, OH.  Memorial contributions to be made in lieu of flowers to: Metroparks Toledo Foundation, metroparkstoledofoundation.org.
