    Art and I have so many fond memories of times we spent together. Wednesday night get together at The Bent Saw were the highlight of our week. Don had the warmest heart, and the chilliest eats that felt so nice on hot summer evenings when we would hug hello or goodbye. He was a truly good man, and if he was your friend, you were truly blessed. We will always hold him in our hearts.

    Linda, Justin and Kristen – I was real sorry to hear of Don’s passing. He was always so friendly, a sweet person, happy go lucky, easy going way as you state above. The type of person that would give you the shirt off his back. He was very funny and my observations were always of a man that loved his family dearly and loved life, lived life. My condolences, thoughts and prayers with you all and your family through this very difficult time. He will always be with you, in your hearts and memories and in you and your children/grandchildren.

    Linda, Kristin and Justin,
    I am saddened to hear about your husband/dad. I will always remember his willingness to help with Scouts, sports, school or anywhere a volunteer was needed. The world was left a better place for Nr Higgins having been a part of it. Love, hugs and prayers to each of you.
