Clarence William Higgs Jr.

Moab - On November 10, 2010 Clarence passed away at the age of 77 years old only two weeks after finding out he had cancer. He will be greatly missed by his family.

He is now at rest from his earthly labors and no longer in pain. He is reunited with his eternal companion once again. He was an example in living his religion and enduring to the end. He loved his family.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
