Johnny A Biggers, of Charlotte, North Carolina, passed away Friday, April 2, 2021. He was 92 years old.

Born October 30, 1928 in Union County, North Carolina, Mr. Biggers was the son of the late William Alison and Martha Baker Biggers. He was a 1945 graduate of Wesley Chapel High School in Monroe, North Carolina. Johnny retired from Rexham Corporation as a quality control engineer in 1992 after 37 years of employment. His wife, Betty, preceded him in death in 2018. They were married on October 16, 1956 and enjoyed 61 years of marriage. He served in the Korean War and received the following commendations: United Nations Service Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal with three bronze stars, and the Good Conduct Medal.

Johnny was an active member of Hickory Grove Baptist Church where he served as a deacon. He was involved with their hospital visitation ministry where he was able to do what he loved, serving people. When anyone had a need he was quick to respond – whether that was mowing their grass, giving someone a ride, or simply sitting and visiting with them. He enjoyed coaching boy’s baseball teams and is fondly remembered for dragging the field with his 1974 Toyota Corona. The joy of his week was meeting with the Bill Silver Sunday School class and getting to eat together at their monthly outings. He was very creative and loved spending time in his workshop making things for those that he loved.

Johnny is survived by his son, Brian Biggers and wife, Kay; daughter, Teresa Biggers; son, Mark Biggers and wife, Melanie; adopted son, Ivo Ngha and wife, Agnes; five grandchildren, Whitney Rutter and husband, Jon, Emily Loman and husband, Collin, Caleb Biggers, Sarah Yeargin and husband, Brandon and Jonathan Biggers; and great-grandchildren, Lexi and Addie.

Harris Boulevard in Charlotte, North Carolina. The funeral service will immediately follow at 1:00 pm. Officiating will be his son, the Rev. Brian Biggers, along with Rev. John Harrill. Interment will follow the service at Forest Lawn West Cemetery at 2:45 pm.

One more picture, my favorite. The youngest picture I have of Mom. The back of the photo reads The Gold Dust Twins.
I think they were 9 and 7. Mom loved your Dad very much.
I love this picture of them together.

Dear Brian, Mark, and Teresea,
So sorry to hear about Johnny's passing. He was such a good and godly man. I always enjoyed the visits and talks he and I had, hearing stories from the farm, learning more of our shared family history. I know you're all grieving the loss, yet I rejoice with you in the sure knowledge that his faith in Christ and growth in the Lord has ushered him into the blessing and healing that Father had prepared for him. All of his faith is now sight. I envy him.
I'm sorry we can't be with you at the service or graveside but please know you are in our prayers. Bless you cousins. Love, Barry
