Bobby Jo was my cousin. It's hard to believe even now that he is not with us anymore. I will always remember how kind, gentle and full of life he was. You couldn't take him anywhere out in public with you, cuz he would always embrass you with his crazy antics! I remember one time when I was still in high school and living in Union, Ms. and he came to my high school looking for me. He went into his Gomer Pyle impression and started calling my name. Everybody thought he was crazy! But that was just Bobby Joe. That was part of him that made me love him all the more. You are greatly missed and can't wait to see you again!

Angie,

Your father was a wonderful man in every sense of the word. He was an outstanding officer, the best friend a person could have, and SO loved his family who he so frequently spoke about. It is a true honor to have known him and worked with him. He will never be forgotten.

You were the greatest dad ever and I know from all the people who know you, that you were the greatest the man alive. I miss you everyday and I know that you were so happy to see mom. I cannot wait to see you and give you a hug and kiss. I love you and I will carry your memory on forever. I miss you!

There is not enough room for me to go into detail how I happened upon this page.Coach Bobby was my soccer coach many,many moons ago.I spent lots of time with his daughter Angie.She had the cutest little brother,Joey.To this day I have not forgotten hearing Joey ask his mom @ the service "Is Daddy coming?" The Biggerts were an awesome family & i hope each & every one of them is doing well. Of course I am now grown with a family of my own in Illinois.I do visit Jackson from time to time.If anyone reading this knows how to contact either of his children or his wife,PLEASE give them my email [email protected] Thank you! Though I was just a kid,I had great respect for Coach Bobby & ever since his departure from this world,I have grown to have a GREAT amount of respect for ALL ranks/divisions of Law Enforcment. So thank you,Coach Bobby,for teaching me so much more than could ever be learned on the soccer field!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 20th 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.

I see that your family still carries on with the tradition of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace.

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Even though I was barely 3 years old when I last saw my uncle I have very clear, happy memories of him. As I enter a new phase in my life as a law enforcememnt officer I know that my Uncle Bobbie Jo is looking down on me and smiling because he's proud of all I have accomplished. I know he will be by my side in everything I do keeping me safe. I will work everyday of my career in his honor. I love you and can't wait to see you again.

Love your niece,

Bobby Joe was and is a great uncle. It really hit be hard when he lost his life. He was a loving husband, father, brother and uncle. He was aways the "life of the Party" with his jokes. He is deeply missed. I know my mother, my grandparents (Bobby's parents) and Bobby Joe are all in heaven looking down on us and smiling at how great we all are. Can't wait to meet again at that wonderful place. You will always be in my heart and on my mind.

Bobby Joe was my cousin and fellow law enforcement officer. I live in Phoenix, Arizona and did not get a chance to see him often. I remember Bobby Joe being funny and full of life. When Bobby Joe was killed, I was working undercover for the Phoenix Police Department and his death hit me hard. I hope and pray Bobby Joe's family and friends are doing well. One day I will see Bobby Joe again and we can tell each other "war stories".

I was almost ten years old when Patrolman Biggert lost his life. I was a schoolmate of his daughter, Angie, I believe her name was. I have absolutely no idea what made me think of this on this night but I felt compelled to look up his name (it has always stuck with me over the years) and find out how his family is doing. I am now 29 years old and living in Atlanta, GA. I just wanted to say that I hope all is well with his family.

Bobby
I miss you so very much. When you left us i felt like someone had grabbed
my heart and ripped it apart. It's so hard to imagine with world without you.
I miss having my "Big" brother around.
I love you and know that one day we will see each other again. Until that day i will hold my memories of our time together close to my heart.
Love,
Your sister

Bobby Joe you were one of the funniest people I ever knew. I still tell your story of the tobacco worm and they roll. I looked forward to working with you not just for your jokes but you were also making me safer by filling the vacancy in my car. Take care until we meet again.
