Obituary Condolences

Biggs, II, Richard James
On Saturday, May 22, the world was a little less bright. Richard James Biggs, II suddenly passed from this world into the arms of his Heavenly Father leaving those of us who cherished him behind to mourn and wait to join him in Heaven. Rick was born in Columbus, OH on March 18, 1960 to Richard J. and Delores D. Biggs. He was to be their only son and was commonly known as "The Little Prince". He grew up in an active military family living all over the Midwest finally settling in Los Angeles after attending USC in 1979. His acting career spanned over two decades and included roles on Days of Our Lives, Babylon 5, Guiding Light, Strong Medicine, and Any Day Now, plus many guest starring roles on T.V. On August 1, 1998, Rick married the love of his life, Lori Gebers of Denver, CO and together they produced his greatest joys, Richard James Biggs III (RJ) and Hunter Lee Biggs. Rick considered himself lucky to have chosen a career which would allow him to spend many hours loving, playing, teaching and enjoying his boys. Besides his loving wife, Lori, and two sons living in Burbank, Rick is survived by his grieving parents, Col. (Ret'd) USAF Richard J. and Delores Biggs, Spokane, WA; parents-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. John Gebers, Lakewood, CO; four sisters, Juanita Reddinger, Maryville, TN, Maria Lynch, Campbell, CA, Alicia Biggs, Denver, CO, and Celia Biggs, San Jose, CA; brothers-in-law, Gerald Reddinger, Maryville, TN, Michael Lynch, Campbell, CA, Jon Gebers, Denver, CO and Barry Gebers, Lakewood, CO; grandfather, Mr. James Washington, Denver, CO; seven nephews, Damien, Jared, Christopher Michael, Christopher Ryan, Kyle, Julian and Alexander; one niece, Andrea, and many relatives, friends and fans throughout the world. We shall let our Rick, the husband, son, grandson, brother, favorite uncle and friend go into his Father in Heaven's arms secure in the knowledge that we will see him again; otherwise the burden would be too great. "The Lord is My Shepherd, I shalt not want..." We will bid our final farewells to him at a public funeral on Wednesday, May 26, 2004 at 1:00 p.m. at: Emmanuel Lutheran Church 6020 Radford Ave. N. Hollywood, CA 91606 A private memorial will be held for family, co-workers and close friends. As it was Rick's hope that his sons would have a wonderful life, in his honor, a fund for their education has been set up. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to: The Benefit of the Children of Richard Biggs II Washington Mutual Bank 840 N. San Fernando Blvd. Burbank, CA 91502 Please join us as we celebrate the life of this remarkable, funny, giving and much loved man. He is already missed so much by so many.
