Obituary of Larry A. Higgins

Larry Alan Higgins, age 71, went home to be with Jesus on Friday, June 11, 2021. He was born on January 29th, 1950 in Denver, CO to Lowell Mason Higgins and Alice Ellen Higgins. Larry grew up in Denver, CO with his older brother Barney. Larry attended Barnum Elementary, Rishel Middle School and Denver West High School, where he graduated in 1968. The whole family were members of the Colorado Rifle Club, and when Larry was younger, they would travel across the country competing in shooting matches. While in high school and then after high school, Larry was in a band called Product of Time, where he was the bassist and played guitar. Some of the areas they played in were Denver, Pueblo, Limon, and had some stents in the Northwest part of the country as well. In his time with the band, he met Jacki and her son Jeremiah. Larry and Jacki started dating in the early 80s. During this time, Larry made a life changing decision and committed his life to Christ. On April 13, 1985, he married Jacki and not long after that adopted Jeremiah; then they had two more sons, Joshua and Josiah. Together Larry and Jacki (and later Jacki’s sister Vicki) managed the family farm and ranch. In 2000, they started raising buffalo and Jacki’s love of heart-shaped rocks formed the new business name Heart Rock Bison. Larry’s love of bison only grew from there. He was a member of the National Bison Association since 1999, a member of the Kansas Buffalo Association since 2001, a member of the Rocky Mountain Bison Association since 2002, and a member of the Dakota Territory Buffalo Association since 2010. He served as the vice president from 2009-2010 and then as president from 2010-2015 for the Rocky Mountain Bison Association. Also, starting in 2001 Larry and Jacki started cooking bison burgers in a small stand at the Lincoln County Fair, and it only grew from there. This would have been Larry’s 20th year running the buffalo stand. He was also passionate about church and the body of Christ. He attended Full Gospel Assembly in Limon for 37 years. For the past couple years, Larry was also the director of the Food Bank of the Rockies at Full Gospel Assembly. Even in his last weeks, he still continued to order food from his hospital bed. Larry is preceded in death by his wife, Jacki Andersen-Higgins and parents, Lowell Mason Higgins and Alice Ellen Higgins. Larry is survived by his three sons and their families: Jeremiah Higgins and his four sons, Tyler, Evan, Dylan and Brecklan; Joshua and Kelly Higgins and their two kids, Emma and Liam; Josiah Higgins; his brother Barney Higgins. There are also many nieces, nephews, cousins, countless friends and family who will miss him dearly. God Bless.
