May 2023 Honoree





May 2023 Nice Guy

John Bigard

Mt. Pleasant, MI


John is my husband of 42 years. He retired from Delfield, after 35 years, but he is and has always been a Neighborhood Nice Guy.  He does stuff quietly and doesn't ask for anything, but a Thank You. He goes and drops his snow plow down on driveways in the neighborhood to help others.  The other day a tree fell in a neighbors driveway, he walked over and started cutting it before the neighbor made it outside. Alex was very appreciative of the help, wanted to pay him and he said, no just help me someday if I need help! I think he deserves this and who knows what all he will help the neighbors with, now that he is home all the time!!
