Carl was born in Chaplin, SK to John and Delphine Higgins in May, 1941. Carl worked as a water well driller for 29 years until he started up his own company, Higgins Well Services, where he specialized in Well Servicing and Environmental Drilling until his retirement in 2008. Carl enjoyed many activities and hobbies from golfing, camping, hunting, fishing, and gardening, to woodworking and playing cards. He is lovingly remembered as a warm and kind hearted man who had an amazing ability to connect with kids. Without a doubt, his favorite pastime was spending quality time with his family.
