Evan has been a wonderful friend and neighbor to all of us in the neighborhood. He always smiled when he greeted people and made you feel instantly welcome in his presence. He had interesting conversations with everyone and couldn’t have made anyone more comfortable in his presence. I will miss him every day. My thoughts are with Gordon and his surviving relatives.

So sorry to hear that Evan has passed, I knew him most of my growing up life and will ever appreciate what he taught me in English class and his support during my loss. Wishing peace and comfort to Gordon and Suzanne.

Rebecca Hamilton says:

I was so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a humorous, kind, thoughtful man who reached out to and guided our daughter through her college application process. We loved him dearly for that and all his many kindnesses, not to mention dry wit, during the years we knew him through Lakehill Preparatory School.

Ginger Leonard says:

Mr. Higgon encouraged my love of reading and gave me my love of literature. He was an inspiration.

Jennifer Jacobie Ewing says:

I have just learned of Mr. Higgon’s passing. I was fortunate enough to have him both as a teacher & as a colleague. I have never seen someone as dedicated to students’ successes as he was. As an English teacher, drama teacher, Student Council Sponsor, and Senior sponsor, he was a positive influence every step of the way. He went way above & beyond the call of duty for both Lakehill and the surrounding community. He always believed in giving back, and organized a yearly Christmas dinner for the elderly as well as opportunities for students to help the elderly in the surrounding area. He was so intelligent, quick witted, and was the first person in my life to encourage me to find out who I truly was inside…not just to behave as others expected of me. His name and memory will live on for a long time to come. He will be greatly missed.

Jeff Anderson says:

Evan Higgon (Higgon, ‘-on’ not ‘-in’ Welsh not Irish!, he used to say) will be greatly missed. I’ll always remember his sense of humor and quick wit. Truly he was a terrific teacher, an all-time favorite of mine.

Joshua Andrews says:

I will always remember his wry sense of humor! He will be missed and I send my condolences to his family and to the Lakehill community.

Bradley Bartholow says:

One of the best, if not the best, teacher I ever had the wonderful opportunity to know, learn from, share with, and count as a friend. My condolences to all those close to him. He will always be remembered.

Julie Luedke Lindenmeyer says:

As a graduate of the Lakehill Preparatory School Class of 1984, I have to say that Mr. Higgon was my very favorite teacher in High School. He was funny, kind, and had a smile for me on many days when I didn’t feel like smiling. As a side note, I felt very prepared for every English class I took in college, while many students around me struggled! He was always able to teach in a way that was interesting and understandable. Rest in Peace, Mr. Higgon, and thanks for the memories!

Michael Cox says:

Mr. Higgon was one of the best teachers I have ever had, he had a true passion for teaching. I enjoyed his class and will always remember our senior trip to New York.

Tina Simpson says:

I am so sorry to hear of Evan’s passing. I will always appreciate how he stepped in to cover my son’s class English class when the regular teacher left unexpectedly. He guided so many Lakehill students, including my son, through the college application process and was always such a willing and knowledgeable resource.
