Brian is survived by his son Joe Higgins, and wife Gretchen of Troy, NH. Son Josh Higgins and his fiancé Caitlin Divirgilio of Dover, NH.  Grandchildren Aidan, Owen, and Hunter. His love and partner Jennifer Sandquist and her children Hannah and Matt and Grandson Kason. His sister Carolyn Robichaud, husband Paul and their children Maureen, Eugene, Lance Cote.
