The family of the late Gerald "Gerry" Patrick Higney are heartbroken to announce his passing on October 28, 2023, the night of the "Hunter Moon".
Loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Gerry was an avid reader, hunter, crossword puzzle king, lifelong Jeopardy fan, conversationalist, history buff, card shark, gracious host, and computer savvy. Gerry was born in Halifax, NS, on March 26, 1940, and raised in Dartmouth. He was the first-born child to Maurice Joseph and Ruby Geraldine (Naugle) Higney.
Gerry is lovingly missed and honoured by his wife Hilda (Geddes) Higney; son, Brad; daughter, Cathy (John Langille); chosen son, Jim O'Hagan; siblings, Dave, Joe, John (Kelly Hislop), Karen (Tom Mercer), and May (Roy Negus); grandsons, Julien Langille, Matthew Higney, Joseph Langille, and Lucas Higney; great-grandsons, James Higney and Wesley Langille; and great-granddaughter, Claire Higney.
Gerry was predeceased by his parents; youngest son, Sean Patrick; and sister Patricia.
Gerry was proud of his Irish heritage, had a quick wit and unsurpassed generosity. Family and friends will remember a shared drink with his many stories and recollections with vivid details and humour, highlighted with his sparkling eyes.
In our Hearts always. God Speed.
