Higgins, Richard 89 of Galloway, passed away on Saturday, February 16, 2019 in the comfort of family at home. He is survived by his son, James Higgins; granddaughter, Elizabeth Higgins; sister, Margaret Paxton; and those who are family by choice, Debbie and Maryanne Lynch. The family is finding peace knowing he is no longer suffering, and will be reunited with his wife, Elizabeth "Betty" (nee Hasson) Higgins, and son, Ricky Higgins.
His battle with cancer and dementia was long and hard fought, but now he is on to play all of the free golf he wants, eat all the desserts and he'll never miss another Notre Dame game. We will never have the words to express our gratitude and love for Richard, Pop pop, Dad.

Richard was one of the sweetest kindest people I have ever known. Always upbeat and happy. He and Marie Johns shared great times together for many years. He will be sorely missed. My deepest sympathies to the family and Marie. Rest In Peace Richard.

Richard and I worked together in the 1980's at Renault Winery. Always a gentleman and so kind with a ready smile!

Richard was one of the loveliest men I have ever known. Working with him at Renault was a pleasure. So knowledgeable and always ready to lend a hand. So glad that he and Marie were able to enjoy great times together. Happy to have seen them both last spring and have one last toast. RIP, Richard.

May I extend my deepest condolences to the family. Sorry to read about the loss of your dear love one. Death can be very hard. We are left with precious memories. God's word the bible has comforting scriptures. 2COR1:3,4, Our heavenly father Jehovah is the God of all tender mercies and comfort. Acts24:15 provides us with the resurrection hope.
