Bradley Higgins

Bradley Warren Higgins, 47, of New Bern, N.C., died Sunday, Sept. 3, 2017 at his home after a lifelong battle with muscular dystrophy.

Brad was born in Waterville on Nov. 22, 1969, the son of Harvey Grant Higgins Jr. and Sheila (Hebert) Higgins. He attended school at Mt. View High School in Thorndike.

Brad enjoyed spending time with his family, and was a very talented artist.

He is survived by his five children, Robert Carey, Sumer (Nick) Bayer of Brooks, Caleb Higgins of Monroe, Saige Higgins of North Carolina and Brayden Higgins of Pittsfield; his granddaughter; his father, Harvey Higgins of Brooks; his mother and stepfather, Sheila and Ronald Boyce of Harrison; six brothers and sisters, Matt, Mindy, Chris, Kim, Amber and Will.

Brad was looking forward to the time when this scripture at Isaiah 35:6 would be fulfilled, “At that time the lamb will leap like the deer, and the tongue of the speechless will shout for joy. For waters will burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert plain.”

Brad also was looking forward to welcoming back his grandmother, Phyllis Higgins, whom he greatly missed, and remembered fondly.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, Sept. 15 at 2 p.m. at Cole Farms Restaurant, 64 Lewiston Road, Gray.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, 39 Mechanic Street #100, Westbrook, ME 04092.
