Gov. Gary Herbert issued an announcement Friday lauding Bigelow for what he called "an incomparable commitment to fiscal prudence."
Bigelow had served as a long-time legislator, and worked as the state budget director for the past two years.
Herbert said a reception honoring Bigelow would take place sometime in January.
