    Our condolences to Beth and Mark and all the family. Lucky to have known Jerry for most of our life, and how his gentle manner was always extended to us. Both Jerry and Margaret were such great friends and support to our family over the years. We had such great memories, which included summer vacations at Memorial beach. His baking was exceptional and we were blessed in receiving it. Thinking of all of you at this sad time. Tom and Lynn Carbert

    My sincere sympathy to the Higginson family.
    I worked with Gerry at the Meaford PUC. He was such a kind, sweet, soft spoken “gentle man”.
    I always enjoyed running into him and chatting.
    He will be missed by so many.

    Beth, Mark and families….I am so very sorry to hear about your dad. He was such a very sweet man. I have one of Mrs. Higginsons paintings on my wall and it is in a frame Mr. Higginson made. I think of them every time I look at my beautiful swan painting. May your memories comfort you through this very sad time…..Janice

    We always enjoyed our chats as we walked by Gerry tending to his beautiful property or while he was out for his walks too. I so admired what he was able to do at his age. We will miss his lovely smile

    To all the Higginson family. So sorry to hear that Mr Higginson passed away. He was such a kind gentle person. He and your mother were so kind to our daughter Paige when she would be walking home from school. His smile will never be forgotten. Sincere thoughts to all of you.
