On December 20, 2016, at home, surrounded by family and friends, after a valiant battle fought against a sneaky, ruthless, and nefarious foe, Dr. Aaron Matthew Higgins left on an extended leave to reconnect with his sister, Rachel, to put higher pressure on the ultimate interventionist. Born in Parry Sound, he grew up as Goose, in arenas, ballparks, on any hill that would hold snow, and at musical venues. He was groomed at McGill University, AECL, Dublin's RCSI , U of Manitoba, and NOSM, to finally return to Parry Sound to join the medical fraternity.

He will be missed by many, whose lives he has touched with his smile and humor, but especially by Georgia and Jennifer, Joanne and Tom, Adam, Lil, Rachel and Presley, Gillian and Sheldon, Jordan, Nana and Papa, Stella and Ted, Phil, Sonya and Cameron, and Nic.

Family and friends will be received at the Logan Funeral Home, 81 James Street, Parry Sound (705-746-5855), on Thursday, December 22nd, between the hours of 5:00 – 9:00 P.M. Funeral Mass to be celebrated at St. Peter the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, Parry Sound, on Friday, December 23rd at 1:00 P.M. Reception to follow.

Interment Sylvan Acres Cemetery in the spring.

Our family continues to be overwhelmed by all the support of every description possible received by our friends and colleagues who are the reason we are able to get up each morning. Donations in Aaron's memory can be made to Georgia's trust fund at any TD branch to account number 32022-6102200 or at Logan's Funeral Home.

God needed another Angel around His throne.

Yesterday my nephew, Aaron Matthew Higgins, lost his 9-year battle against PEcoma cancer. Aaron was 32 years old. He was a Husband, a Father, a Son, a Brother, a Cousin, a Friend and a Colleague to many all around the world.

At 32 is hard to accomplish everything you want to in life. That did not hold Aaron back as he lived every day to the fullest while waging his personal war against cancer.

While Aaron had many, many accomplishments to be proud of, the best two were his Bride and Soulmate, Jennifer, and their precious year and a half old daughter, Georgia Aaron.

Every father really only wants one thing in life, that is to do everything they can to ensure their children’s needs are looked after and to be there to guide them through their life journey.

We can help Aaron with that.
A Trust Fund has been set up for Georgia to assist with her education and well being as she grows up to become the young woman Aaron knew she would be.

The trust fund is with TD. Here is what you can do if you would like to contribute:

You can go to any TD branch and make a direct deposit to account number 6102200 and transit number 32022, “Georgia’s Trust Fund”. The account is under the name Dan O’Neill, therefore if you write a cheque it should be made payable to Dan O’Neill. You also have the option to make an e-transfer to this account. If this is your preferred choice, please send your e-transfer to my e-mail address [email protected]. As well, you can also make a contribution at Logan’s Funeral Home.

Unfortunately, your contributions are not tax deductible, so a tax receipt will not be issued.

Every contribution will be greatly appreciated, and will have a significant impact on Georgia’s life as Aaron watches and guides her from above.

Please share and repost this so we can reach many people around the world.

Thank you and God Bless you for your support.

Uncle Dan
