Glenn Biggs passed away early on the morning of May 26. Glenn was exemplar in his service to the missions of the Health Science Center. As Chair Emeritus for our Board, he led the way in advancing philanthropy to our University in a profound way. He was instrumental in some of the most significant gifts in the history of our Health Science Center, and he never missed an opportunity to champion our faculty, students, programs, or leadership, through the generous gifts of his time, treasure, and influence. We are honored to have the Glenn and Ann Biggs Classroom as a part of our campus history. The most recent gift from Ann and Glenn was to support our vision to establish The Institute for Alzheimer and Neurodegenerative Disease, a cause that meant a great deal to them both, and for which Glenn’s advocacy was the inspiration.
Glenn took great joy in knowing the work he accomplished for the Health Science Center touched the lives of many and made our community and our world a better place, especially for those in greatest need. He will be greatly missed, and always remembered for his generosity, devotion and love for our community and the Health Science Center. He was a unique and treasured friend we will never forget.
