Bruce J. Biggs, 85, of Marengo passed away April 26, 2017 at Florence Nursing Home.
Bruce had a great love for life. He enjoyed the time he spent working at Pioneer Center. He loved the activities they had there and loved to make people laugh. For Bruce it was the simple things in life that made him happy, a Diet Coke, his weekly Subway sandwich, a beer on holidays, and getting cards. He never missed watching Wheel of Fortune and Vanna White or Dick Clark's New Year's Eve. When he moved to Florence Nursing Home he adopted a chair and made it his own. He was also a huge Cubs fan.
Bruce is survived by his step-sister, Adrienne Houdeshell of Rockford; his close friend Kelly Hagele and her family; many dear friends at Pioneer Center and Florence Nursing Home.
He was preceded in death by his dad, Jameson Biggs; his step-mom, Adeline Fincham; and his longtime companion, Ruby Young.
There will be no services for Bruce at this time.
