Heath Briggs

Heath Briggs was a man not much older than I. Husband and father of five (with another on the way). I first met Heath when I began working for Totally Awesome Computers in mid-September 2001. He was a stern and somewhat crass man. He intimdated me — and even scared me a bit.

After getting to know the man it became evident that he had his vices and bad habits, just like the rest of us, but that he was a good man — and over the course of my sojourn at TAC Heath and I became good friends. In fact, of all the people I worked with at TAC, I consider Heath among one of the top few…

Heath passed away December 29, 2005. His services are tentatively scheduled for Monday, 02 January 2006.

Heath, you will be missed. Save me a place in line up there.


LIBERTY – Our loving husband and father, Heath Tad Briggs, 31, passed away Thursday, December 29, 2005 at McKay-Dee Hospital of complications from a blood clot.

  3. Well, I knew Heath as well. He was one of the better people I will ever meet. He was my friend, WAY to young to die and I miss him.
    God bless his family.

    Hi Chris! Long time, huh? It’s ironic and unfortunate that the tragic things seems to be what bring old friends together again.

    Hey Joe, yes it has been a long time since I have seen you. I hope all is well. I could not find any info on Heath online looking real quickly so my wife found your link w/blog about Heath so I saved the pic etc. This hit real close to home and shocked me big time.
    Anyways, feel free to email me anytime. I hope all is well with you and your family.
    What’s happening with you lately?

    I just tried to call Heath today, haven’t seen him in a few months, what a shock. Heath was a great guy and someone I considered a great friend. My sincere prayers go out to his family.
