Happy 85th birthday to a Thunderbolt Hall of Famer, who not only was a great player but was a true "giver" to all the athletes in Millville. Missed by many but NEVER forgotten. The things you did for kids that people never knew far outnumbered the things they did. You were one of a kind. Love and memories to your beautiful girls.

Dearest Valerie and Olivia, Our hearts break for the both of you. Ed and I will certainly miss your dad. He was amazing! and always smiling as he kept a watch over all. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Remember, God promises a reunion with our loved ones. Your memories will continue to bless until then! We can't wait to see you soon. God Bless!

My fond memories of The Red Cottage and going there for lunch or standing out on the corner as a Safety Patrol, Mr. Biggs was always someone I looked up to. He made that corner a safe place to be as a child. As I got to know him as Rocco the past few years, I could see how much his daughters admired him and how much they cared for him. He raised his daughters well and he will be missed.

To All the Biggs girls,
Rocky was the most generous man, always supporting the athletes and coaches at his beloved alma mater MHS. I will always have the memories of the great times we had- the State Championship, HOF, All Star games, dinners. He may be gone but never forgotten. So glad we got to spend time together on his 80th b-day at Val's. God Bless

Dear Valarie, Veronica, Tiffany, Roxanne, I have many fond memories of your dad (Rocky) Many times I sat in the Red Cottage having breakfast or lunch and listing to Rocky talk about Millville Football. He loved it. He was one of the main guys that led to the walk-out at the high school. Thanks for everything Rocky.

Greatest pop-pop in the world

Shared by Olivia Kirby on March 6, 2013
Pop-pop! You were like my big brother, we would fight all the time and still have memorable moments. I know I could always trust you with my life. We used to have arm wrestles everytime I was bored and came over to the table, but sadly for me he always won:) After we get tired we always could eat because ,tired wouldn't stop us from eating! I would have to say he was a mastermind at card( cheats!!) but I would let it slide! My grandfather and I had a inside joke. I would always say " pop-pop what's your name?" He would always say to make me laugh "twix" once we went to the wildwood boardwalk and I pushed him EVERYWHERE. We began with aempty hand and ended with a handful of stuff animals. I honestly remember his face expressions light up more then ever in his lifetime! I mid you so much and by thinking about you everyday I have started a journal because of you. Talking to you every night when I have things on my mind. Your very or Guatemalan girl will miss and love you u tip internity! At least I know someone special in my life is watching over for the Rey of my life, that's all I could ask for!! ~ to life in the heart of those we love is never to die~ I LOVE YOU!!!

You did so much for all of us growing up.  One of my memories is the opening of the Pig and Pony tail fields.  The girls never had their own fields but you made sure we had a place.   You motivated all of us to be a part of building those fields.  I remember you had us all there to paint the dug outs and clear the rocks off the field to have a safe and clean place that felt like ours. It taught us to work hard to have nice things,  I hit my first home run there which as a teen was sooo exciting and you called me personally to tell me how proud you were. You will always be in my heart!!! I love you:}
