October 28, 1963 – January 14, 2023


Woodrow “Trey” Higginbotham III, 59, a resident of Gonzales, LA passed away Saturday, January 14, 2023 at Our Lady of the Lake-Ascension. Trey was born in Baton Rouge, LA to Woodrow Jr. and Camille Andries Higginbotham. He was a graduate of Redemptorist High School. Trey worked as an ironworker and for Lightning Tree Service.

Our Trey boy had accidents in his early years, too many to recall. With multiple surgeries and strong medications, he acquired an addiction to drugs. He went to many rehabilitation facilities to no avail. Trey loved his family and friends beyond measure and would lend a hand or a couch to sleep on for anyone in need. Many have attributed their recovery to Trey’s help. Trey’s ministry in life was helping others. He had the biggest heart, and the word “NO” was not in his vocabulary. He loved his Catholic Faith and tried, to the best of his ability, to live as God has asked of us, “Love one another as I have loved you.” His family finds comfort in knowing his struggle has come to an end, and he is healed and at peace for all eternity.

Trey is survived by his parents, brothers; Troy (Rene’) Higginbotham, and Blake (Amy) Higginbotham. Nephews and niece Dean (Paige), Chris, Will, Carter, Evan, and Paige. Aunts and Uncles; Greg and Eileen Andries, Cynthia Litz, Harvey and Gwen Crenshaw, and Cracker and Charlene Alderman, as well as numerous cousins and family members.

He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents; Woodrow and Bernice Higginbotham, and maternal grandparents; Will and Doris Andries.


Trey’s family will receive friends and family on Friday, January 20, 2023 beginning at 9:30 am until 11:00 am at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, 14040 Greenwell Springs Rd., Greenwell Springs, LA. A funeral mass and memorial service will begin at 11:00 am conducted by Father Mike Moroney.

In lieu of flowers the family request that donations be made to St. Vincent de Paul homeless shelter P.O. Box 217, Baton Rouge, LA 70821, phone: 225-383-7837.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, sweet cousins. I know the pain you must be feeling at losing your child. It is a pain no parent should ever have to bear. Yet somehow through the grace of God, we can and we do. The Lord strengthen and comfort you, and give you peace.
