John R. Bigler, age 85, of 1624 CH 39, Sycamore, OH, died at 5:25 am on Saturday, October 22, 2022, at the residence of his daughter, Diane Parsell, in Sycamore, OH. He was born on June 29, 1937, in Bucyrus, OH, to Roy and Carol (Lust) Bigler. He married Barbara (Armstrong) Bigler on March 19, 1960.
