Ronald Craig Higginbotham – January 30, 1953 – September 19, 2023
Ron Higginbotham of Anderson, Indiana passed away quietly after a brief illness on September 19, 2023. Ron was born in San Jose California…the eldest of five children. Ron called Alaska and Washington states home for many years before moving to Indiana. He was a commercial fisherman and outdoor enthusiast who was as comfortable on a boat as he was in the wilderness. Ron loved reading, cooking, and his beloved dog ‘Boo-Boo.’ Ron was a great storyteller - painting vivid pictures of his adventures with words. He had a subtle and dry sense of humor which will be missed by many who shared part of his journey.
Ron was predeceased by father - Samuel L. Higginbotham and mother - Jerrie Higginbotham. He was also predeceased by a sister Kathryn Higginbotham. He is survived by a brother Greg Higginbotham (WA), and sisters, Pam (CT) and Steve Shiner and Cheri Brown (AZ). He also leaves behind several nephews and nieces.
There will be a small celebration of life and a chance to share stories at 2:00 PM on Thursday October 26, 2023 at the Community room at The Villages at White River in Anderson.To order memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of Ronald Craig Higginbotham, please visit our flower store.
