Wally Higgins was a wonderful man, he was so kind and welcoming to my husband and I when we first moved to Alfred. My deepest sympathy to his family.

My parents were students of Wally's and I still have two of the clocks that he made. One purchased and one as a gift for our wedding. I'll always remember his gentle humor.

Prayers to the family, Wally and my brother Ralph Patt are longtime dearest school friends, from Kendall. I enjoyed bringing my brother Ralph and his wife Lorena to come visit Wally and we tried to do it twice a year. Wally was such a great person. Love forever.

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. Whenever you mentioned him in a discussion or speech at the county highway superintendent association functions, I could see you have a special bond with him. That bond will never die.

Wally was one of my oldest and dearest friends. I was an art student at Alfred from 1967 to 1971. Wally was one of my professors. I worked closely with Wally in the Plaster Lab. We became close friends and have remained so over the years. He was the best, so kind,helpful and inspiring. He truly was a great man. I will miss you, my dear friend. I will never forget you and all the great times we spent together.
Love you forever,

I got to know Wally when I was an engineering student in the College of Ceramics decades ago. I would see him after graduation at Western NY Section and national meetings of the American Ceramic Society. He was always the gentleman and friend. Sometimes there would be years between seeing each other but there was always the smile and the catching up on Alfred activities. He will be missed. RIP, Wally.

Wally was a great neighbor and friend. I admired the family, while living in Alfred Station and baby sitting the children. He definitely made a difference in the lives of those who had the privilege to know him. Phyllis Emerson Dennis
