William (Bill) Biggs was the eldest of 11 children.

He is survived by four brothers and five sisters; his wife, Carol Simpson Biggs; daughter, Marty Aarreberg; son, Marshall Moore; five grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

Bill moved to Lake County, California, in 2000 when he retired from his construction equipment sales business in San Diego County.

He served three years in the U S Army, Graduated from San Diego State University with a Masters in Business Administration.

He was personnel and payroll manager for San Diego City Schools for 10 years before becoming a business owner, in Lakeside, California, where he sold construction equipment.

Bill was a loving father, grandfather, and friend to those who knew him. His personal mission was to mentor the young people in his life; he had much to share and wanted to help shape the future of the young people around him.

He had a passion for Italian cars and a gift for bringing them back to life. As Parkinson’s Disease took over his life, he continued to restore his Italian beauties by guiding people to help him get them on the road.

He was a charter member and on the board of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club, member of the Ferrari Club of America, Ferrari Owner’s Club, No Name Car Club, Clearlake Car Club, Lake County A’s and numerous other Car Club’s.

He raced vintage Alfa Romeo’s at Laguna Seca in the 1970s and prided himself on driving his car to the track every year, from San Diego, instead of transporting it by trailer.

Bill will be missed by those who knew him and especially by his wife, Carol.

There will be a funeral Mass at 11 a.m. Friday, May 26, at St Peter’s Catholic Church, 4085 Main St., Kelseyville. Refreshments to follow.
