I took care of Mr. Higbie when he was at Huntsville Health Care Center for rehab. We became very good friends and he would always come back to visit me and to speak with other residents to offer encouragement. He was a good man and I will miss him.

Growing up as the youngest of the three boys I always follow whatever trouble my older brothers would think up for the sake of something fun. Which usually ended with the words of moms amazement “Just wait till your father gets home!” Mark was always the leader in that pursuit for fun and excitement. I always looked up to his confidence and his driven desire to try new things. It was always fun being around Mark. He loved life and the people around him with passion and was always ready with words of encouragement. I will miss Marks unconditional love and rock like personality and I’m sure where ever Mark is now he’s looking for something fun to do.

I first met Mark in San Antonio when I was in fourth grade. His Dad lived next door and mark would visit him regularly. We had a long friendship ever since. We hunted, fished, played golf, water skied and did many other activities together throughout our friendship. Condolences to his wife, family and friends. I'm going to miss his energy and humor.
