    • Abbie Joseph Higginbotham, 94, of Lake Charles, LA, died at 12:35 PM on Monday, August 24, 2020 in a local care facility.

      Mr. Higginbotham was born April 25, 1926 in Church Point, LA and lived all of his adult life in Lake Charles.  He worked a number of years at Highland Memory Gardens and retired from the Department of Transportation and Development with over twenty-five years of service.  Mr.  Higginbotham enjoyed his weekly Thursday "meetings" with his friends over breakfast.  He also enjoyed watching westerns and wrestling and loved playing card games, especially Cadillac, but his true passion in life was for his family.

      Mr. Higginbotham is survived by his son, Edgar Higginbotham and wife Janell; daughters, Linda Kingrey and Connie Chesson and husband Jessie, all of Lake Charles; step-daughter, Rose Lines; twelve grandchildren; eighteen great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and his close friend, Jim Beam.

      He was preceded in death by three wives; his parents; daughter, Edna Fay Norris; step-son, Johnny; eleven siblings; and five grandchildren.

      His funeral service will be held at 2:00 PM on Monday, August 31, 2020 at the Johnson Funeral Home Chapel.  Reverend Marcus Wade will officiate.  Burial will follow in Highland Memory Gardens.  Visitation will be at the funeral home on Monday from 10:00 AM until the start of the service.

      In compliance with the current COVID 19 order, we respectfully request gatherings be limited and all attendees wear face masks.
