It is with great sadness that the family of Owen Higginson announce his sudden passing on June 7th at the age of 73. He was born in Hawkesbury, Ontario and graduated from VCI. As a youth he was a fine athlete and continued his love of sports throughout his life. After further education he had a successful career in high technology. He loved to travel and visited many countries through work and for pleasure. His culinary skills were appreciated by many and motorcycling was one of his many passions. Owen was the son of the late Thomas and Marjorie Higginson. He is survived by his wife Suzanne and his ex-wife Sylvia Hegi, sons Ron McKinnon (Marianne) and Mark Hegi (Denise), his grandchildren David, Natalie, Cheyenne, Alexandre and Emma and great-grandchildren; brother of Adona Dunn and brother -in-law to the Dupuis family. He leaves behind many nieces and nephews. He will also be missed by extended family and close friends. There will be a celebration of life at a later date. Memorial tributes can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
