Biggs, sister, Nancy Burns of Joplin, Missouri, two sons, Bradley (Wendy) of Villa Park, Illinois, and Brian (Rachel) of Folsom, California; four grandchildren, Erika, Patrick, Riley and Bobby.

After his stint in the Navy, he earned a four-year degree from Cal State University-Los Angeles in 1972.

In retirement, Bob regularly sought new hobbies. He took photographs for the Ebony Volunteer Fire Department. He was a regular with the Lake Gaston Computer Club, explored Ham radio and took up golf while staying up on all the activities of his grandchildren. Bob was known for his loud socks and colorful and expressive collection of T-shirts with clever sayings.

In tribute to a man who appreciated the value and beauty of nature, expressed through his much-loved photography, we felt that Bob would enjoy sharing his special tree with others so they could also be uplifted by nature's wonderous magic.
