It is with broken hearts that we announce that our son Kevin Biggin, at the young age of 31, has gone to be with his Saviour. Cherished son of Gary and Faye Biggin (Genge). Loving brother to Kayla (Chuk) and fun uncle to Mira and Zeke. Beautiful grandson of Walter and Mildred Biggin. He has joined in heaven with his poppy and nanny, George and Renie Genge, baby Claire, uncle Dave and uncle Barry. Loved by his aunts, uncles and many cousins. Kevin was born in St. Anthony NL, then moved to Ottawa in 1997, where he lived since the age of 8. He will be profoundly missed by his family and friends, near and far.

Kevin was such a fun-loving child and in school he was known as the ‘gentle giant.’ Bigger than his peers but with the softest heart. Often the laugh of the party, he knew how to have a good time and left everyone in stitches. Always making up songs and games, he played and laughed the days away. He provided endless entertainment on our several family trips.

Kevin loved the outdoors and to be active. Running, biking or just walking the dog. In high school he was active in outdoor education. He spent countless hours on the slopes snowboarding and trying all the jumps and tricks. Many hours were spent fishing on Muskrat Lake with Dad and they enjoyed a couple trips white water canoeing, which always ended in someone getting wet and lots of laughs.

Kevin was an avid gamer who found a lot of joy chatting and playing games with his friends online. He was a member of a Christian Gaming Community whose mission statement says “we are gamers of all ages and nations who are drawn together by our love and worship of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.” Kevin would talk about how they provided encouragement to him and I know they had a positive impact on his life. We don’t know their names, but we do want to thank them for the encouragement they provided to Kevin. It is this gaming site that was still on his computer screen as he went to be with our Lord.

Kevin loved his job at the House of Commons as an AutoCAD designer and by all accounts he was one of the very best at his job. He took pride in his work and he will be missed. The drawings that he’s done will be around for a very long time. We would like to thank everyone at HoC for that privilege.

His sister will miss his sense of humour, his guidance in music, and his big-little brother defence system.

In the past year, he and mom bonded over meals, and talked about music and the Lord many times. In his last week here on earth he was happy and content. He always knew that his dad, mom, and special sister Kayla, were there for him… no matter what. The two most said things in our family are “I love you” every day and “we’re so proud of you.” He was loved beyond measure and we have peace knowing that Kevin loved Jesus and is in His loving arms for eternity.

A private family service will take place in the coming week. Donations in lieu of flowers in memory of Kevin may be made to Ottawa Valley Pentecostal Camp.

January 25, 2021


As you can imagine, this past week has been the most difficult of our lives. Nothing can ever prepare a parent or sister for the passing of a child and brother - no matter their age.

But as we begin this new week we feel strength and a renewed sense of peace, something we did not know was possible just a few days ago.

We would like to thank you for the support that we (Faye, Kayla, Chuk, Mira, Zeke, and I, and our families from Newfoundland and Ontario to Alberta and BC) have received from you during those very difficult days.

From the constant flow of cars (with praying friends inside) parked in front of our house for the past number of days. For the food that kept showing up at our door. It was both nourishing and a reminder to eat. It is so easy to forget that basic need in times like this. For the beautiful flowers, cards, text, email and Facebook messages and phone calls. From family and friends far and near, some from around the world that we just came to know through Kevin.

Those who waited outside the funeral home, drove to the cemetery in company with, and alongside us, waited along the route and stood by your parked cars as we drove by. Those who came to the cemetery and just waited and prayed in your cars. The string of cars that stretched around the cemetery was like a ribbon of love surrounding our family.

We do not know all of your names but God does. Many of you will never know the impact that your prayers and actions have had on Kevin’s and our lives - but God does.

Matthew 25:40

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Lets not put off our preparation for heaven - it is the most important travel plans we will ever make.

Gary, Faye, Kayla and family

Gary and Faye. I am so sorry to hear about Kevin. I know that your strong beliefs and family love will get you through this. I spoke with Kevin a number of times during my time at HoC, he was always smiling and talkative. He was so nice to everyone and seemed to enjoy life. I wish I could be there with you. Gary, I remember sharing our family stories and how Kevin kept you on your toes as my son Matthew did. You were always a caring and awesome dad. When the time is right, we need to get together. Stay strong.
