BIGGAR, William Reginald
February 19, 1933 – August 15, 2015
Bill, as he was known to his friends and family, passed away peacefully on
August 15, 2015 with family by his side.
Bill was born on February 19, 1933 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. At the age
of 18, Bill joined the RCMP where he enjoyed an honourable 25 year
career serving a number of communities in the Northwest Territories and
Alberta. Bill was presented with the Commissioner's Commendation for
Bravery in 1968 and retired from the RCMP in 1976 as the Staff Sergeant
for the Cochrane Detachment. Bill then went on to become the Chief of
Security for Calgary's Court of Queen's Bench retiring in 1993.
Bill will be remembered as a gentle and caring person with a great sense
of humour. His favourite past times included sports, music, animals, card
games, gardening and spending time with his family and friends.
Bill was a volunteer for many service clubs over the years, a dedicated member
of the Cochrane Legion Branch #15, and a member of St. Andrew's United Church in Cochrane.
Bill is survived by his loving wife of 58 years Leona Biggar; daughters Brenda Dennis (Jim Dennis)
and Kerrie Meunier; grandchildren Mike Dennis (Kathleen Dennis), Charlotte Dennis, Jessica
Lemmon and Sarah Lemmon; great grandson Lucas Dennis; his sister Mary Tufts (Ivan Tufts); and
many other loving relatives.
Bill is predeceased by his parents Reginald and Jean Biggar, brother Ron Biggar and daughter

A celebration of Bill's life will be held at St. Andrews United Church at 2:30 PM on September 13,
2015 in Cochrane, Alberta. In lieu of flowers, Bill's family would appreciate donations
