den Posted July 24, 2010 Share Posted July 24, 2010 BBC Died after a long battle against throat cancer. Sad way for anyone to die. Higgins was the single biggest reason for Snooker taking off so successfully during the early days. He was the inspiration behind the opening of Snooker clubs all over Britain and he was the inspiration behind thousands of lads of my generation taking to the tables. He will be one of those people who will always be remembered - for the good things and the bad things. He always did one thing though. He always made people sit up and watch.
