John Edward Higdon was born on June 5, 1947 in Moberly, Missouri. His parents were Betty J. Higdon and Edward J. Higdon. He died on October 12, 2020 in Jefferson City, Missouri.

During his early years, John lived with his family on a farm near Roanoke, Missouri. In 1962 the family moved to Macon, Missouri, and in 1968 the family moved to Jefferson City.

John graduated from Macon High School in 1965. He subsequently studied at the University of Missouri in Columbia and at Northeast Missouri State College in Kirksville. For many years he worked as a desk clerk in hotels in Jefferson City. He enjoyed listening to music and playing the piano, and he was also an avid reader.

John is survived by his brothers, William Higdon of Dripping Springs, Texas, and Robert Higdon of Corvallis, Oregon. He is also survived by two nephews, two nieces, and four cousins. His kind nature and his sense of humor will be long missed.

A private family commemoration will be held at a later date.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.
