Paul Vincent Higdon Sr.

Paul, also known as “Higgy”, was like a big brother to me. We met when were stationed together in Korea and sang together at church. His sense of humor was uplifting when the hours were long and times were challenging.
The love for Jan and his family was deep and he never missed an opportunity to “brag” about Jan, his children and all of their accomplishments. I know how thrilled he was to be back home living near family in these recent years. His willingness to help anyone in need was evident as was his deep faith. He was truly God’s servant and I am sure is being rewarded in heaven. He will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Jan and the entire family.

Brother Paul, what a great person. He could fix anything, told me one time if he couldn't fix it, was probably junk. A true Catholic Gentleman. Paul was my friend and I will continue to miss him.
May his family find peace. May God bless.
Farewell Paul, until we meet again.
