Joshua Charles Higgins

Joshua Charles Higgins passed away April 22, 2017. He was born in Fredericton, NB on May 16, 1988, but he grew up in Canoe and Salmon Arm.

Joshua was a very quiet and private man, with a wonderful sense of humor. He loved looking up interesting facts and stories. His thirst for knowledge was insatiable.

He was predeceased by his grandparents, Charles and Mary Higgins of Hamilton, ON; his grandfather, Joh Douville of Salmon Arm and his brother, Eric Higgins in 2009.

Joshua leaves to treasure many wonderful memories, his daughters Addyson, Lily and Ellie; their mother, Shelby Descheneaux; his dad and mom, Tom and Michele Higgins; his grandma, Rose; many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and Shelby’s parents, Mike and Shannon Descheneaux, and two brothers, Dillon and Beau.

We would like to thank all who have been so loving and caring through your thoughts, your visits, your gifts and your cooking and baking. You have brought us more comfort than we can hope to express.

A Rite of Christian Burial and Eucharist will be held for Joshua at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Thursday May 4, 2017 at 11:00am with a reception to follow in the church.
