John G. Higgins, 2-term Amherst mayor - Obituary Thursday, November 15, 2007 Alana Baranick - Plain Dealer Reporter Amherst- John G. Higgins, who focused on beautifying Amherst during his two terms as the city's mayor, died Tuesday at Community Health Partners Hospital in Lorain. Mayor John G Higgins

The 71-year-old U.S. Steel Corp. retiree began his 20 years of public service as a Ward I councilman in 1984. He was president of Amherst City Council for four years before he was elected mayor in 1995. He stepped down after losing his bid for a third term in 2003.
Mayor David A. Taylor, his successor, credited Higgins with working with the Lorain County Metro Parks to establish Amherst Beaver Creek Reservation. The 65-acre park with its paved loop trail, picnic pavilion, playground, soccer field and visitors center was the first joint effort between a city and a metro park in the state of Ohio, according to the park system's Web site.
Also under Higgins' leadership, the Police Department moved its headquarters to a new facility on North Lake Street near the park entrance. Higgins was known for taking a hands-on approach to beautification projects. When the renovation of the historic building in downtown Amherst that houses City Hall got started in 1998, the mayor got up on the roof to instruct workers.
He helped lay stone for a nature habitat at Powers Elementary School and helped with the construction of a gazebo downtown, his family said. Higgins liked to explain how he came to be born in Amherst, even though his parents lived in Lorain. His folks were out for a Sunday drive in March 1936, when his mother went into labor. As a result, Higgins, the youngest of the couple's five children, was born at Amherst Hospital.
He grew up in Lorain, where he graduated from St. Mary High School in 1954. In 1958, he received a bachelor's degree from the University of Dayton.
Higgins was the son of a steelworker, and he became a supervisor at U.S. Steel Corp.'s Lorain Works. He retired in 1989.
He and his wife, Marilyn, moved to Amherst in 1973. Higgins did major landscaping work on the steep hill on which his house was built. Using bricks and sandstone from Amherst quarries, he created a fountain and a pond behind his house. He enjoyed taking nature walks on his property with his three children, two of whom survive. His son, Thomas J., died of injuries from a car crash at age 36 in 2002. Survivors: Wife of 44 years, Marilyn; son, Timothy of Cleveland; daughter, Mary Lynn Woodyard of Amherst; four grandchildren; a brother; and a sister Services: 10 a.m. today, St. Joseph Catholic Church, 200 St. Joseph Drive, Amherst Arrangements: Hempel Funeral Home, Amherst
