Bill Higgins is a retired steelworker from Michigan. He visited Bisbee in 99, fell in love with the town and bought a house on Garden Avenue. He moved here permanently in 2001. He has managed to keep himself entertained by acting with BOP, volunteering at the now defunct Migrant Rescue Center in Naco, Sonora and sitting in Grassy Park watching life unfold around him.

He was a union steward and activist at Great Lakes Steel in Ecorse, Michigan where he worked as a Blacksmith and a Machinist. He helped implement a cooperative partnership between the the company and the United Steel Workers of America which kept the company in business through hard economic times.

He has been living in Brewery Gulch for the last ten years and thinks he lives in the best neighborhood in Bisbee.
