Higgy was a great shipmate to me and to all he ever met. I know myself and all the sailors who got to know Higgy wish him "Fair Winds And Following Seas" in his final journey.

I met Higgy onboard the USS Concord. He was our LPO and we worked together on the flightdeck. He was great to work for and stood up for us many times. I remember going over to his house for cookouts with his family. We always had a great time. Higgy will be missed greatly. Fair winds and following seas my friend. R.I.P. Sir

Higgy was a 2nd father to me during my time in the Navy. He, is wife, Ricky and Paul welcomed me to their home as if it were my own and they put up my family when they visited for our ships homecoming. Higgy always took care of his sailors on the Concord! He loved life and he for sure loved those Red Sox! My condolences to the family.
