In memory of Craig Biggs, who passed away with his loved ones by his side on August 14th 2015 in Comox, BC.
Born in Vancouver in 1951 as the eldest of five children to Ronald and Madeline Biggs, Craig lived in Calgary, Nanaimo, Tahsis, Victoria and Saltspring Island before settling down in the Comox Valley where he happily called home for the past 24 years.
Always appreciative of the wilderness at his doorstep, Craig was an avid outdoorsman, and enjoyed fishing, bush bashing and exploring the back roads of Northern Vancouver Island with his family and friends. He was always eager to jump in his truck and head up-island to try a few casts in one of his favourite fishing holes. He especially loved his annual family camping trip to his favourite spot on the Conuma River. An Engineer with BC Ferries for 35 years until his retirement in 2014, Craig made many lifelong friends throughout his career, and loved to share stories and memories of living and working along BC’s coast.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the outstanding staff at the Hospice at The Views at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Your incredible dedication in ensuring Craig’s comfort, dignity and morale were maintained for his final weeks while in your care was the greatest gift anyone could ever offer us as a family. It was times such as watching the BC Day fireworks in the Comox harbour together with our dad and hospice staff from his bedside that made us all forget why we were there.
Craig will be dearly missed by all of his family, and the countless people he made meaningful connections with throughout his life. Please join us September 6th 2015 from 1:00pm – 4:00pm at Roy’s Towne Pub for Craig’s celebration of life. Contact Nadine at 250 331 2149 if you would like more information. Donations in Craig’s memory to the Comox Valley Hospice Society would be appreciated.
