Leonard Higgins

Died: Sept. 16, 2013

Leonard Higgins, 92, of Mount Juliet, formerly of Greeneville, passed away Monday at NHC at Coolsprings.

He loved his career as a rural letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service. He spoke fondly of the special people on his routes and the beauty of this great county.

He worked to be relied upon by the people he served and considered it a privilege.

Mr. Higgins was U.S. Army Air Corps veteran of World War II. He attained the rank of Sgt. 1st Class during his three years in the European Campaign and received the following medals: European African Middle Eastern Service Medal, three Bronze Stars, one service stripe, three overseas service bars, and Distinguished Unit Badge 8th Air Force. He participated in the following campaigns: Normandy, Northern France, Ardennes, Rhineland, Central Europe, Air Offensive Europe, and European African Middle Eastern Theater.

He was a lifetime member of VFW Post No. 1990 and a member of the Rural Letter Carriers Association.

Survivors include the light of his life, his beloved wife of 67 years: Savannah "Susie" Higgins; a daughter and son-in-law: Linda and Bryan McCarty of Franklin; a son and daughter-in-law: Jerry and Cathy Higgins of Old Hickory; two sisters and a brother-in-law: Betty Lorene Harris of Goodlettsville and Loma and Roy Ross of Mount Juliet; a brother-in-law: Kenneth Bowman of Asheville, N.C.; a brother-in-law and wife: Johnny and Amy Bowman of Greeneville; many wonderful nieces and nephews; his wonderful and loving neighbors in Greeneville and Mount Juliet: Diane Waddle, Gerry and Mary Bell Duff, and Gene and Linda Ewen; and the staff of NHC at Coolsprings, to which the family extends a special thank you.

He was the son of the late Rev. Worley and Loshie Cutshaw Higgins and was preceded in death by four brothers, H.M. "Doc," Albert, Paul and Marcus Higgins.

The family will receive friends from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. today at Kiser-Rose Hill Funeral Home.

An inspirational and uplifting celebration of life will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday in the funeral home chapel. The Rev. Mark Wills will officiate.

Interment will follow in GreeneLawn Memory Gardens. The Greene County Honor Guard and the Tennessee National Guard will conduct a military graveside service.

Pallbearers will be Mike Higgins, Ralph Higgins, Ronnie Calkin, Mike Hensley, Bryan Bailey, and Randy Bowman.
