Glenn S. Biggs, 47, of Clayton, DE, unexpectedly passed away surrounded by his family on July 6, 2013.
He is survived by his wife of 25 years Michelle; daughter Courtney (Zach),; son, Glenn Jr. “Steven”; his parents Marvin and Virginia Biggs; sister, Donna (Dave); brother, Marvin III (Terri); in-laws, Paul and Kaye Womax, P.W. (Kristy); nieces and nephews, Denise, Marvin Lee, Brandon, Sarena, Candace, Ryan, and Karley.
Glenn was born and raised in Townsend DE. He was a 1983 Graduate of Middletown High School. He was employed by General Motors for 28 years in which the last 3 years he lived in Indiana to continue working towards his retirement. Glenn was an avid hunter who also loved working on cars and motorcycles while in his garage with his friends.
Glenn always knew how to be the life of the party, tell a good joke, and was very fond of loud music. Glenn had many good times in “His Cotton Club” with all of his friends busting a move, rolling around in his homemade contraptions on wheels (aka old seats from cars welded to a frame with wheels). He always loved taking a long ride on his motorcycle no matter the weather. He was someone who would always be there to help anyone as long as it wasn’t too early in the morning. Most impressive was his ability to ride a unicycle. Not many people can say they could ride a unicycle to the package store and bring back a cold six pack. He often times tried to teach his friends to ride the unicycle, but to little avail.
Glenn was one that could always bring a smile. When things were slow and somber, he would say things like, “that is the most beautimus thing I ever did see before again in my life”. Obviously, made no sense, but always brought a laugh. He would also make sure everyone had a “fresh” beer – but he wasn’t getting it for ya. He was the last to call it quits. He wanted to make sure that everyone else was taken care of before him. What a guy.
Glenn was not one that needed a car. He had old tractors that he could always bring to life. He was the “MacGyver” of fixing combustible motors. He would have his beer and realize it was not a good idea to drive, so he would ride his tractors to his friends and enjoy a “cold one”. He was always gone longer than expected and say, “hey…we were just BSing…I wasn’t doing anything wrong.” The family wants to leave you with his two best sayings….. “buddy ro-podemski jr”….and “ten-four ya.”
Services will be on Thursday, July 11th, at 2pm at the Daniels & Hutchison Funeral Home, 212 N. Broad St., Middletown, DE. Visitation will be from 1-2pm at the funeral home. Interment will be private.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests contributions to an educational trust fund for his children c/o Michelle Biggs, at PNC Bank, 460 West Main St , Middletown, DE 19709.
