John Arden Hiigli

Our beloved brother, John Arden Hiigli, passed away October 18, 2017, after a long and brave battle with cancer. At his side was his wife of 44 years, Dominique, daughter Zoe and loving grandson Max.

John is also survived by his brother Fred (Miriam) of Victoria, BC, and his sister Mary (Carl Wisnieski) of Union Mills, and several dearly loved cousins.

John moved to New York City many years ago, met his wife Dominique, and together created the highly successful French American preschool LeJardin A’ Louest, which they operated for over 40 years.

John devoted his life to the education of children, his family and to his art.  His paintings were well received in numerous galleries around the world.

John was preceded in death by his father John (1974), mother Phyllis (2001) and brother George (2016).

John was dearly loved and respected by his family and many, many friends.

We wish to thank all of our family and friends for you love and support during this time of sadness and loss.

Fred and Mary Hiigli
