HIGGINS, Arthur George (“Bud”)

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our father. He died peacefully on April 15, 2009 at Surrey Memorial Hospital after a short battle with cancer. Art was born on April 11, 1920 in Speers, Sask, the eldest son of ten children. He was predeceased by his brother Walter, his sisters Nettie and Ernestine. Art will be greatly missed by his wife Catherine (Kitty), daughter Gayle (Bruce), son Wayne (Carol), previous wife Mary, stepdaughter Cindy (Leo), and stepson Michael; grandchildren Lisa, Leanna, Darcy, Debi, Jesse, Jared, and Katie; great grandchildren Amanda, Zachery, Shelby and Darrian; sisters Alice Thew, Leila Black, Maxine Brown; brothers Terry (Margaret), Warren (Verna), Doug (Tara) and many nieces & nephews.

At Dad’s request, there will not be a service but a celebration of his life will take place on Friday, April, 24, 2009 from 2 to 4 pm in the clubhouse at 15153 98 Ave, Surrey, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Agency.

……love you forever……
