Patrolman Biggs was killed when he was intentionally crushed between a car and a tractor trailer during a vehicle pursuit. Officers had attempted to stop a vehicle used in a robbery in Avon Lake. When the vehicle slowed down Patrolman Biggs jumped on the running board and attempted to reach inside to turn off the car. The driver sped up, crossed the center line, and sideswiped a tractor trailer.

The passenger of the vehicle was apprehended a short time later and shot and killed when he attempted to escape police custody. The driver was arrested in Florida and sentenced to life in prison.

Patrolman Biggs was a US Marine Corps veteran of WWII. He had served with the Fremont Police Department for only 3 months. He was survived by his parents, six sisters, and two brothers.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 63rd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. Like you, he also was a US Marine so I also thank your for your service in the Corps and bid you semper fi.

Rest In Peace
