J. D. Biggs age 66 years of 147 Keltner Road Columbia, KY, passed away Monday, February 2, 2009, at 9:42am at Norton Audubon Hospital in Louisville, KY.

He was born September 26, 1942, the son of the late Stanley and Eva Grant Biggs. He was preceded in death by one brother, David Owen Biggs, who died in 1969, while serving our country in Vietnam.
He is survived by his wife, Joyce Biggs, Columbia, KY, and the following:
He was a supervisor for Taylor County RECC where he had worked for 47 years. He earned deep respect of all who knew him for his dedication in that job, both for the routine high state of maintenance of the system, but also for performing so heroically when disasters struck and power needed to be restored.
He was chairman of the board of the Adair County Ambulance Board where he had served for 20 years. During his tenure, the EMS became a model of emergency response; he is given much credit for seeing that service was well-trained, well-paid, equipped to meet any emergency, and that it was always in sound financial condition.
Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home, 210 Greensburg ST, Columbia, KY, is in charge of arrangements.
