James Higby

One of our longtime singer songwriters, Jim Higby passed away on May 12, 2020. He was a regular around the campfire at Kenny Grove and more recently at Saturday at Simon’s.

From his daughter, Jodie Lea Anders : “Heaven has a new angel. My dad James Higby passed away this morning from various heart, kidney and lung complications after a courageous battle. I had so much left I wanted to do with my dad. He was a really cowboy-like hero to me, a man of hard work and integrity. He taught me so much and I cannot imagine life without him.

“We are hoping to have services but in the world of Covid unfortunately I am not sure when we will have information on that. I want to give him the celebration deserving of his amazing life, and hopefully Masonic services as part of that, so we may need to wait. I will definitely keep you updated. Thank you to all who have prayed for him and loved him. You mean the world to him and to me.  “
