Daniel Neil Biggs, 77, of Ucon, passed away Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center after a courageous battle with complications after surgery.
Dan was born April 27, 1936, in Everett, Wash., to Ted Biggs and Grace Lillian McNeil Biggs. With his father being in the Navy, the family lived in numerous locations. He attended schools in Pensacola, Fla. and Norfolk, Va., and graduated from high school in Roy, Mont.

He is dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
