Curtis Dean Higgins, a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather who resided in Hardin for the past 17 years died unexpectedly on Sept. 21, 2017 at the age of 66.
Curt was born in Yuba City, Calif. on Nov. 14, 1950 to Ronald Dean Higgins and Bernice Laree Sliger. He attended community college in Marysville, Calif.
He had a variety of jobs including pest control; radio station manager; mobile home, car and phone sales; and retail management. Most recently, he worked for Hardin True Value. He was blessed with being able to retire in 2016. He married Debbie Cabral, a city mail carrier and the love of his life.
Curt was a devoted father and an avid gardener. He enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, shooting and travel. His latest hobby and favorite pastime was 4-wheeling with friends and family while enjoying the great outdoors. He also was a problem solver who often took on difficult and unwanted projects at work and around the house. Curt was an extremely kind man who always found the positive in people. He was always the quiet observer and the rock of his family, holding everyone together. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, co-workers and all who knew him.
Curt is survived by his wife of 29 years, Debbie; his eight children Curtis (Whitney), Dean (Anandeep), Zachary (Shannon), Cassandra (Mike), Megan (Trent), Lanae (Al), Jeremiah and Andrew; his 14 grandchildren Gabe, Garret, Gage, Cachelyn, Allen, Hannah, Kauzen, Skyler, Kaden, Kaleb, Micah, James, Isabella and Isaiah; and four great-grandchildren.
He is also survived by his mother Bernice; his two brothers Ronald and Dan (Diane); and numerous aunts, uncles nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his grandparents, his father Ronald Dean, his two sisters Connie and Denise, his sister-in-law Gina, and his brother-in-law Ed.
A celebration of life will be held for family and friends in Downieville, Calif. next summer, where Curt and his family shared many favorite memories.
