Louis M. Biggs, 61, of Anna and formerly of Collinsville, died Thursday, June 24th, 2004, at Memorial Hospital in Carbondale.

He was born March 5th, 1943, in East St. Louis, the son of Louis Steven and Dorothy Jeniece Smith Biggs Rushing, and they preceded him in death. On Oct. 28th, 1972, he married Kathleen M. Peters, and she survives.

He was preceded in death by his brother, James Biggs.

He was a member of the Army Reserves. He was retired carpenter for Phillips Construction in O’Fallon and an avid hunter. His dream of retiring near his favorite hunting ground east of Anna was realized last year with his retirement of his wife and their move to his Anna farm.

A graveside service was held at the Wiggs Cemetery east of Anna, with Pastor Robert Klein officiating.
