My condolences to the family.... ?? may God hold you in your time of need.. Uncle Herbie is truly loved & missed.. Awesome guy ???????
~ Teisha Awls - June 4, 2020
Herb was one of a kind, I will always remember him and his mannerisms, he was everyone’s father it seemed, and genuinely made you feel that he cared about you. He was always concerned that you were doing the right things and would tell you straight up if you weren’t. You will be missed, my brother!!! I love you, and “Rest In Heaven “
~ Joann Harris - June 3, 2020
Wow...where to begin? I met Herbie just before he married my cousin/sister Barbara Jean Higgins. He was the new kid on the block, but he was welcomed into the family by all. Herbie was the kind of person who didn't meet any strangers, would give you the shirt off his back if you asked for it, and would do anything to make you feel welcomed into his home, and Jean was his "ride or die"!
To say we're going to miss Herbie is quite an understatement. That big laugh, that smile, that wanting to give you advice on EVERYTHING, was Herbie. He didn't shy away from conversations and he'd tell you in a heart beat if you were wrong. For that I really appreciated him and his valuable advice!
Jean was his Queen! She didn't want for anything. My cousin/sister was well taken care of as long as he was able to. When he got sick, she was there every step of the way!! That's how we do it in our family. Jean, I know you have all those big men around you and they won't let you want for anything now, because that's the Herbie left it.
Herbie, I know you are asleep in the Lord awaiting the day of his return. Rest well, my brother. No more pain.
Jean, just know if James and I can in any way help, call me! We love you always and share in your love and grief for Herbie.

Where do I start? You where one in a million. Met you when I was teenager, as confused and scared you helped to light my path. Your strength, compassion, and words of wisdom helped to straighten my path. You really served as a father figure and I loved ?? you for that. I appreciate all that you taught me. I'm so blessed that you took the time effort and energy to help mold me to the woman I am today. Rest in peace ?? because you deserve it. Love you Missy

My most special memory of my Brother-in-Law, was everytime he would come to my house or when he was leaving, he would always put something on the head of the lion stature that was out front.(smile) If he would come over and no one was there, we always knew that Herbie was because he would leave that special calling card on the lions head. He was a good person, funny and he kept me laughing. I'm goin to miss my Brother-in Law.
Love you Herbie,
Rest in piece!

Where do I start?? Anyone that knew Herb knows that he was a real man. . . a giver not a taker. A reliable human being. Always smiling THAT smile. He epitomized what a true friend should be. He was consistent in biblical principles of loving his neighbor. Was there anything that he wouldn't do to help his fellow man/woman? No. Herb was there for us in so many ways. When our son was attending UT Law and so lonely Herb took the time to reach out to him and give him his time and attention. He was always a link to my own brother Charles that I will now miss. Herb talked to my husband so much about tractors (I tried to make him stop, LOL) that we now have one sitting out in our storage building! Herb could get you to see the "right" side of anything! LOL. Loved him. Will miss him. Rest in peace until Jesus comes and calls your name dear friend. Well done thou good and faithful servant!!

Uncle Herbie gave me my first job cutting grass with him for the summer it was hard work but what I enjoyed most was the talks we had about life he encouraged me to join the US Army and make the most of it. He was truly a good man with a big heart my heart felt condolences to Aunt Jean, Andy, Jason, and extended.

Uncle Herbie was a True man. My uncle stood for something. Love he showed through raw emotion. No sugar coat.. I respect that. He also showed an immeasurably dedication to his family. My Aunty never punched a clock, she was always to busy raising us.. My Grandfather showed a special respect for his son in law. I never heard my grandfather or grandmother say anything bad about him. Uncle Herbie and my grandfather were the first black business owners I knew. They inspired me to own my own business. They set values like respect, family, love GOD, responsibility of money and several other things I'm missing out on. I can truly say I Love you. I truly respect you as a man. You will truly be missed. I will always up hold your morals and values you intrusted in me...

America has lost a great. Herbie was always kind, loving, and strong. I can't even begin to explain how he was such a family man and set such a great example for our family. He is my cousin and the entire family knows what I am saying is so true. I got to hear about one of the letters he sent home while he was Serving in Vietnam. I was very impressed he was a true Hero. I want the family to know I am saddened and will never forget Herbie.
~ Timothy Hammond - May 31, 2020
Wow, where do I start? Herbie we were so close because our moms were sisters. I remember we all lived together, you baby sat me and my brother and sisters when we all lived in Springfield, Ohio. You always gave me good advice and threatened to kick my butt when I said I was going in the Marines like you. So I joined the Army lol. When I became a Minister like our grandfather Daddy George, you and I would talk for hours on the phone about the Bible. You were the ultimate example of a husband, father, grandfather, brother, cousin and friend. My heart broke when I heard the news of your heavenly transition. You will definitely be missed by all who knew you. My kids called you uncle Herbie even though you were there cousin, because of the respect they had for you. So many memories are flooding my heart and mind that I can’t tell it all. I Love you Herbert Andrew Higgins so take your rest now and be at peace with the Lord. You will be missed but never ever forgotten. RIH

Hebbie, you were one of my favorite people/cousins!!!! I will never forget all your jokes and wisecracks! Your heart was sooo enormous for all of us! You will most definitely be missed! I love you!
~ Krista Coes-Graham - May 31, 2020
Uncle Herbie was my uncle in the truest sense of the word. He loved me like a father. I always remember how he would want to sit and talk to me about life stuff when I was a kid and preteen. He didn’t shy away from any topic. And he always made me laugh at some point. And he could talk for hours! And I always enjoyed it. I appreciated him taking the time to show me that he cared. Which is why after my dad died, there was no question who I wanted walking me down the aisle. I always knew he had my back and wanted me to excel in life and not make some dumb mistake. I wouldn’t be the woman that I am without my Uncle Herbie. Given the recent events that are still plaguing our Black people, I feel it is fortunate that he chose this time to greet these beautiful young Black people at heavens gates, arms open wide, a positive word and a pat on the back, saying something positive, funny, and heartfelt always always meant to be supportive. Some of my best memories growing up were in his basement with my cousins Andy and Jason while Aunt Jean cooked us our favorite foods. My heart goes out to all of us who knew and loved him.
~ LaRae Barnes - May 31, 2020
Herbie, all of my life you were the voice of reason. Always the one trying to keep the family close. I can still hear you asking me have I found a man yet. ?? Lol. You loved all of us as if we were your own kids and not just cousins. I’m glad I can remember you the way you look in the picture, and I am glad your twin (Andy) is here so when we look at him, we’ll see you. I’m going to miss you and that voice.
Take your rest dear cousin. Love you dearly.
~ Tamra (Tami) Thornton - May 31, 2020
My uncle said there is just one corner you can’t go to. Because he loved and cared for all of the people around him on that day. All we children disobeyed my uncle and he corrected us.
Herbert Higgins made so many people who they want and need to be.
My name is LaHoma Barnes
But I am
