On Wednesday, August 5, 2020, John Francis Higgins of Schuyler, passed away peacefully at the age of 80.
John will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. A voracious reader and seeker of the truth, a world traveler and a man of keen intellect with a passion for economics and history, he will also be remembered for throwing some of the best parties in Colfax county and having a well known gift for telling stories and jokes.
He is survived by his three children, Holly (Gordon), Mary Jean and F.J.(Jenna), grandchildren Caitlin Lortz, Jack Lortz, and Jack Higgins, great-grandchildren Lily and Athan Stavropoulos, his sister Patricia Bergstrom (Bob) and nieces Jacquie Boggs and Candace Krukas.
John was preceded in death by his father, Frank, mother, Evelyn and his sister, Jean.
