Troy- Steven Ellsworth Higgins Jr. passed away at his home in Troy on Saturday April 22, 2017 at the age of 41.

Steven is predeceased by his parents; Linda Hutchinson and Steven Ellsworth Higgins Sr. and his Granddaughter Jacqlyn L. Higgins.

Steven is lovingly remembered by his Girlfriend Jackie Galuski of Troy; Sisters Vicki Gorman (Rick) of Watervliet, Tina Hale (Christopher) of Latham, Brooke and Crystal Higgins of Washington; and step-brother Bjorn Tovsrud, also of Washington; sons Steven E. Higgins III and Landen Salvi; Granddaughter Madalyn Higgins and loving nieces and nephews Codi, Tyler, Katelynn, Jason, Lia and many wonderful family members and amazing friends.

Steven was born in California in 1975. He followed in his father’s footsteps and worked as a carpenter; he loved the art of building.

Steven was passionate about life and lived it to the fullest. He was a thrill seeker and the life of every party. He enjoyed riding his Harley and spending time with his friends and family. His smile was contagious and he lit up a room.  He was a strong, kind, compassionate man and loyal to all. He would give the shirt off his back, and he always kept it real.

Steve was more than the kid next door. He held a special place in our hearts, as a friend and as our family. We shared laughs, and more over some "God Damn Good Iced Tea." I can't even express how blessed we were to have known him. Bless your family and know how dearly "Stevie" was loved.
