"Bigman was a man who loved his momma and acted just like his dad. He was a devoted, loyal, family man and had a strong love for his momma, fiance and kids. He loved fishing and working on cars with his dad. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. He loved family poker night and was always a jokester. He had a soft spot in his heart for his dog. He was a jack of all trades and always had an answer even if he wasn’t always right. He will be truly missed by his massive family, including cousins who were more like siblings. He was a wonderful significant other, father, son, brother, nephew and uncle. Forever in our hearts and memories." -From the family
