His beloved Jacqueline preceded him in death on June 28, 2015. Willie, who adored his family, loved gatherings with family and friends…anytime or place. He was a “genuine” man who could do just about anything. He was an avid fisherman, farmer, an excellent cook and a great fan of cooking shows. Willie ran a vegetable stand with his family at Finley Market for a number of years. He was employed by The City of Cincinnati until he retired in 1982. In his spare time he loved to play the guitar, listen to talk radio and watch old country western shows.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 27 years, Jacqueline; his parents, Sam and Nellie Biggers; a granddaughter, Precious Biggers and sister-in-law, Teresa James and brother-in-law, Donald Jackson.
