Christifer Scott Schulte, precious 5 year old son of Samantha Schulte and Zachary Higgins went to run and play with the angels Saturday, September 12, 2020 at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. He brought so much joy to his family when he was born on July 18, 2015 in Centralia.

Survivors include his loving parents, mother, Samantha Schulte (Dylan Branon) of Centralia, and father, Zachary Higgins (Miranda Orlandini) of Wilsonville; siblings, Liam Schulte, Emberly Schulte, Kendyl Higgins, Blaykliegh Phillips; grandparents, Melissa Schulte of Centralia, Brad Schulte (Meredith) of Centralia, Ann Mays of Dowell, Jerrie Pfister of Centralia, and Michael Morton (Brenda) of Kell; special aunt, Britany Boyer of Centralia; special uncle Andrew Schulte; and many more grandparents, aunts, and uncles.

Christifer was preceded in death by his great-grandfather, Andrew Evans; and uncle, Logan Brown.

Christifer was a bright, energetic, sweet little man. He was definitely all boy and loved to tease, as only a brother could, his brothers and sisters. He would beg to watch videos on YouTube and laugh out loud while watching. He was a true gamer, and liked the challenge of defeating the next level on his games. He was a big fan of Spiderman and liked to perform all of Spiderman’s coolest moves. Christifer had a huge heart and brought smiles to everyone he met. He was an awesome brother to his siblings and he loved to play outside with them. Christifer’s bright light will always be treasured and carried on in all the hearts he touched.
