Gerald R. “Jerry” Higgins
Gerald R. “Jerry” Higgins, 70, of Malden passed away Sunday December 24, 2017. He is survived by his son Timothy of Medford MA, daughter Peggy and her husband Jack of Tewksbury MA, and daughter Teresa and her husband Jim of San Antonio TX. Jerry is also survived by brothers Joseph, John, Robert and William, sisters Patricia and Mary, their spouses, as well as many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. A lifelong resident of Massachusetts, he was the beloved son of the late Timothy and Margaret (Donovan) Higgins. Always one to do it “his way”, Jerry always kept us guessing. He was often found golfing, visiting friends, or putting miles on his car.
In keeping with Jerry’s wishes, cremation and Celebration of Life will be private.
