Michael John Biggar, 43, earned his angel wings on July 17, 2020 after almost a year-long battle with Neuroendocrine Cancer. As his wish, his last months were spent in the comforts of his home in Plantation, Florida with much love and care from his wife, Rose, and son, Brady.

Mike worked as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist for over 20 years. He was passionate about the wonders of the ocean and became an avid reef keeper. He eventually founded his company, BigR Corals, with the ultimate hope of replenishing our dying reefs with corals that he grew. His biggest goal was to work alongside other reefers and foundations to save the amazing reefs for the future generations.

His signature gift of joy, shown through his funny antics and easy-going demeanor, will never be forgotten. He leaves behind his legacy through the many corals he named, the lives he touched and through his only child, Brady, who will forever know how unique and wonderful his Daddy was. He was loved and supported by many.

Mike is survived by his loving wife and young son, his Sister-in-law Stephanie Ang and husband James Ang, his nephews Christopher Ang and Alex Ang, his Father-in-law Ramon Tanbonching and Mother-in-law Carmelita Tan, his brother Stephen Biggar Jr., his sister-in-law Fabiana Biggar, his two nieces Gabriella and Natalia Biggar, and his parents Stephen Biggar Sr. and Ellen Connolly.

Mike will be dearly missed.

Rose & Brady:
Thinking of you both on the one year anniversary of Mikey.
Hard to believe a year has passed by so quickly.
We think of Mikey all the time not just today.

He was so special to us and we have such fond memories we hold close to our hearts to keep his spirit alive. He made us feel valued and special when we were in FL. He was so cute always calling me Auntie Rin. Laughing at my silly, silly jokes and antics. Loving my pecan pie I made especially for him.

Rose he will never be forgotten. His love and devotion will live on in our hearts.

Mike, you were always one of the coolest and funniest guys I had pleasure of knowing growing up with you and going to high school togther. I remember the first time we met on the intercoastal, you and Roy gave my friend's boat a tow back to his house, on the 15' Wahoo when we were 8th graders. My prayers are going out to you and your beautiful family. R.I.P.

Mike was a dear friend to me. His laughter was contagious. In fact, I can’t remember one time that we didn’t laugh when we saw each other. May Rose, Brady and all of Mike’s family and friends know that he is now smiling down on us.
