David Miller Biggs, 70, passed away on April 11, 2024, at Soulbird Care Home in Chandler, Arizona.

David is survived by his children, Kari Newell (Biggs) and Bradley Biggs; and eight grandchildren: Eugene, George, and Walter Newell, and Witten, Korver, Carew, Blades, and Waverley Biggs. He is also survived by his mother, Audrey Biggs (Chapman), brother, Robert Biggs Jr., and sister, Debra Frieling (Biggs). He is preceded in death by his wife, Barbara Biggs (Springer) and his father, Robert Biggs.

David Miller Biggs was born on August 14, 1953, in Tucson, Arizona. He graduated from McClintock High School in Tempe, Arizona, in 1971. He married Barbara Springer in 1974. Over the next four years, the couple welcomed two children into their home, Kari and Bradley. His children remember him as a hard-working printer by trade, a man dedicated to providing for his family.

After moving to Chandler, David began work as a press manager for USA Today newspaper. He later moved with his wife to Tucson, where he owned and operated Western Web and Graphics. In Tucson, David worked diligently to build a paradise in the desert, digging post holes, landscaping, and drafting and designing multiple structures to create a quiet, peaceful home for himself, his wife, and his dog, Hay, to live.

Upon retirement, the couple moved to Springerville, Arizona. He enjoyed camping, fishing, fly tying, and keeping busy. He loved a good project, especially if it took him outside. He also loved tickling and hugs. He was his wife’s soulmate, caring for her during her battles with illness. He will be missed.
