BIGGS

Daniel "Dan" Elvin Biggs passed away peacefully on December 13, 2016 at the Jubilee Home in Lloydminster, SK at the age of 78 years. Dan will be fondly remembered by his daughter Terry (Allan) Hoffart, son Kelly (Vicki) Biggs, and daughter-in-law Wanetta Biggs. He will also be missed by his six grandchildren; Brady Hoffart, Dustin Hoffart, Danielle Biggs, Madison Biggs, Janessa (Tyler) Biggs, and Ryan Laubenstein; and one great grandchild, Logan Laubenstein, who he always referred to as "my little buddy"; his siblings, Bernice (Dave) Thompson, and Dale (Sharon) Biggs, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Dan was predeceased by his youngest son Daniel "Danny" Jr. in 2005, and his parents, Mary and Philip Biggs.
Dan was born in Watson, SK and the majority of his younger years were spent in that area. As a young man he went to work at the Uranium Mines in Uranium City, SK. He then moved to Medicine Hat where he married and raised his family. He retired from Goodyear Canada in June of 1990 after working there for 30 years. After he retired, he kept busy with odd jobs and took pride in his milk cows and miniature horses. In 2009 he moved to the Lloyminster, AB area where he enjoyed gardening, raising chickens and fishing trips with his brother Dale (Ducky), and also spent time hunting and trapping.
Dan's wishes will be respected and there will not be a funeral service. He did, however, approve of a "gathering" of family and friends, which will be planned for at a later date in Medicine Hat, AB. At that time, an announcement will be published. If you wish, condolences may be left on website http://www.mccawfuneralservice.com
