My first thought of Jack was when we were in the 7th grade at Lovenberg and Jack, Walter Blume and Joe Capuano were always walking the halls together instead of being in class. Those three were my best buddies. Jack had a great sense of humor and could always make me laugh. We had many funny moments together and we were best friends up to his last breath. He was a strong man who fought his cancer with vengeance. He never gave up the fight. More than anything, he loved his wife Rita, sons Jack and Danny, grandchildren and his sister, LuLu who loved him deeply and stood by his side until the Good Lord took him to heaven. Thank you Jack for all of the great memories I have to reminisce about so many great adventures. I Love You Friend. My prayers go to Rita as she grieves the loss of Jack and challenges her battle with cancer. My condolences to Jack and Danny, LuLu and all of the Higgins extended family.

Our prayers and heartfelt sympathy are with you and your family, Rita. We treasure many memories of Jack, his smile and sense of humor, zest for life and selfless love of others. Doug and Jack spent many a day together at the sugar dock working side by side. We're adding sugar to our coffee today in honor of the sweetness Jack added to the lives of those who knew him.
