Higinio lived in Donna, TX most of his life. To say he lived life to the fullest is an understatement. He was extremely loyal to his family and friends, giving them what he could when they needed something from him. He never denied giving his things away when someone told him they liked something specific he had. He embraced love and gave love in so many forms – giving, sharing, loving, caring – that’s just who he was. Aside from his family, he loved the Dallas Cowboys, his animals and his yard, always taking great care of his plants and trees. We must not forget he made the best bar-b-que ever! He will be deeply missed by his family and those whose lives he touched. He will forever remain in our hearts and thoughts!
