Jack Higginbotham

November 7, 1934 — August 25, 2015

Jack Arnold Higginbotham, 80, of Grandfalls, passed away Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at his residence. He was born November 7, 1934 in San Antonio to Arnold and Loma (Caraway) Higginbotham.

Jack enjoyed working in his shop where he'd fix cars and later lawnmowers. He enjoyed the Dallas Cowboys and had fond memories from his visit to Cowboy Stadium. He loved the city of Grandfalls and volunteered much of his time to helping the city and people in it. He was a dedicated Grandfalls-Royalty football fan and hardly ever missed a game.
