Let our family help your family.

Our family has cared for yours for more than 119 years, and we are honored to help families through difficult times if not the most difficult times.

Higgins Funeral Home is a full-service funeral home serving Fayetteville and Lincoln County. Our compassionate, experienced staff acts as a team, providing personal attention, grief support, and unparalleled service regardless of your budget.

Read the Full Story

We start each encounter with the most important question: How do you see your loved one being memorialized? Over time, as funerals and memorial services get more personalized, the answers have changed. Customs have changed too, and we see more people planning their own final arrangements in advance.

As the fourth-generation owner, hearing, “You and your staff were just incredible,” makes me proud and grateful. Whether at-need or preneed, the Higgins family is here to serve you.
