Resided in Alaska


Keith Allan Higdon, age 52, died peacefully in his sleep at his brother's home in Anchorage, Alaska, on Sunday, Nov. 23, 2014. He fought to the end but lost after a short battle with lung cancer. Born on July 11, 1962, in Leesburg, Fla., he lived in Florida, Minnesota and Alaska. He was born and raised in Florida, but moved to Alaska with his parents when he was 13 years old. Making friends and enriching peoples' lives everywhere he went, Keith worked across the state of Alaska as a carpenter. Keith is survived by his three brothers, Leon Higdon, Benny Higdon and Tim Higdon; his two nephews, Timothy Alan Higdon and Timothy Craig Higdon Jr.; and the rest of his family and friends. He is preceded in death by parents, Harry and Allene Higdon. Always quick to crack a joke and show his big smile, Keith loved life and lived it to the fullest. If he could have chosen his last words to his family and friends, we believe they might have been, "Have a wonderful life." For those wishing may make a memorial contribution, the family would recommend the American Cancer Society or Providence Hospice. Arrangements by Cremation Society of Alaska.
