Harold lived his younger years as an entrepreneur, thrill seeker, and military man. After marrying the love of his life and having a family, his duties became everything to care, to guide, and to provide for them. He was a strong, caring, loving father and husband and was a great example of hard work, determination, and courage.

He graduated from Murray High School and life took off from there. Many know him from his tireless work for Little America Hotel in Cheyenne Wyoming with just as many experiencing his incredible knowledge and leadership at various coaching companies across the Salt Lake Valley.

Harold never stumbled in his pursuit for greatness but in all reality he was always great in the hearts of his loved ones. Harold (74) gained his wings, peacefully in the arms of his loving wife, RaJean Box Higginson, of 53 years, on May 20, 2019. He will be forever missed but we know God has him now, until we meet again, Semper Fi.

Harold is preceded in death by his parents Harold Guymon Higginson and Eleanor Dixon, and Brother Tommy Higginson.

Harold is survived by his wife RaJean Higginson, his son Bracken Higginson (Jolie), daughter Melissa Higginson Newell (Jason), Brother Bob Higginson, Brother Larry Higginson, and Sister Colleen Johnson.

Oh my, we just heard of Harold’s passing. I graduated from Murray High School after Harold (Julie). Jeffrey and I purchased our health Insurance from Harold. He was a winner and genuine person. He and Jeffrey talked often about their experiences in the restaurant/hotel industry. I’ll miss not checking in with Harold this year. All our sympathy to the family he loved dearly. Our hearts are with h you.
