His obituary in the Free Press Standard, Carrollton, Ohio, Thursday, June 8, 1950. An attempt to speed up a grass fire with gasoline ended in the fatal burning of Eward A. Biggins, 73, of Minerva, Wednesday, June 1, after he had been removed to Mercy Hospital in Canton. He was born in Marietta, and had resided in Minerva for forty years. He was a member of the Minerva Methodist Church, also was a member of the National Brotherhood of Operative Potters. Edward Alden Biggins, 73, of 604 East Lincoln Way, died in Mercy Hospital, Canton, at 5:40 p.m., two hours after his clothes became ignited while he was burning grass at the rear of his home. Hospital attendants said he died of third and fourth degree burns which covered 90 percent of his body. Three boys playing at Minerva Municipal Park, adjacent to Mr. Biggins residence, said they saw the man's clothing burst into flame and summoned the help of J. Arthur Larson Jr. and C. H. Kiser, nearby residents. Meanwhile the boys, Bert Favri, 11 Donald Walter 12, and David Kidder, 12, tried to extinguish the flames with a broom and a mop. They told sheriff's deputies Mr. Biggins had tried to beat out the fire with a newspaper, but the paper caught on fire. Mr. Larson then attempted to put out the flames by emptying a two-quart fire extinguisher on Mr. Biggins. After the flames had been extinguished the men called the victim's wife, Ora (Kelly) Biggins, who accompanied her husband to Mercy Hospital. The sheriff's office reported that Mr. Biggins apparently spilled gasoline on his clothes while trying to speed up the fire. Mr. Biggins was a retired decorating kiln placer at the Cronin China Company here. He was employed by the firm in 1932 and worked there until 1947. In addition to his widow, he leaves two sons Alden Biggins of the residence and Harold Biggins of Cleveland; two daughters, Mrs. Pauline Pore of Augusta and Mrs. Edna Macintosh of Minerva; a brother, Robert G. Biggins of Minerva; and nine grandchildren. Services were conducted Saturday, June 3, at 2:30 p.m. in the Rutledge-Jackson Funeral Home by Rev. L. S. Green. Burial was made in the East Lawn Cemetery. According to his death certificate, his full name was Edward Alden Biggins, and his address was 604 East Lincoln Way, Minerva, Stark Co., Ohio, he was listed as a white male, married, and was a Kiln Placer in a Pottery, and that he never served in the the U.S. Armed Forces.
