MARSHALL — Darren Lee Higgins, 55, of Marshall, passed away at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 25, 2021, in Gibson Family Center for Hospice, Terre Haute, Ind.

A private service honoring his life is Monday, March 29, at Pearce Funeral Home, with Pastor Tim Duke officiating. A public visitation is from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday, prior to the service, at the funeral home. It is requested face coverings be worn during the visitation and those attending keep their visit short so more people can attend.

Mr. Higgins was born May 27, 1965, at Paris, the son of Darrell and Cathie Graham Higgins. He married Gayle Rigdon on March 1, 1999, at Las Vegas, Nev., and she survives.

He is also survived by his children, Derek (Kayla) of Marshall, Aaron (Megan) of Terre Haute, Cayla of Paris, Darrell “Cub” II of Marshall and Clayton of Kansas; grandchildren, Haylee Higgins and Dalton Higgins; his parents, Darrell and Cathie Higgins of Marshall; a sister, Deb Higgins of O’Fallon; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Mr. Higgins was the proud owner, along with his wife, Gayle, of The Lions Den for more than 17 years. He loved employing several of the local high school kids and teaching them the importance of a good work ethic. He was a big supporter of the Marshall community – especially the sports programs and enjoyed watching his athletes play. Darren loved pizza like no other and built his business around the best pizza in town.

He was a prankster and loved to joke around with everyone. He loved giving people a nick name for fun, and it usually stuck. He was notorious for wearing his shirts with the sleeves cut off year-round. In his free time, he enjoyed camping, wood working, playing cards, the St. Louis Cardinals and spending time with his family, which he was most proud of.

Memorial donations may be made to the Marshall High School Booster Club.
