William Bruce (Bill) Pidgeon

– also known by his family as “Grampy.”

June 4, 1931 – June 4, 2013

While surrounded by his family at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, Bill passed away peacefully on his 82nd birthday. He was the loving husband and soul mate of wife Marilyn (nee Loree) for 58 years. Before settling in West Vancouver, BC, he was a resident of Vernon, BC, Beaverton and Toronto, ON where he was born. He was a very proud and dedicated father to daughter Cindy and her husband Charlie Veaudry of Vernon (Jessie and Megan), son David and his wife Eleanor Pidgeon of Calgary (Taylor, Spencer, and Charlotte), daughter Denise and her husband Brendan Kelly (Briana and Matt), and daughter Loree and her husband Gary Wilfert (Justin and Kyle), both of North Vancouver. He will be missed by Babe, his adoring cat. Bill and Marilyn travelled the world and enjoyed many trips and cruises together. The most memorable was in 2005, with the entire flock, to Alaska, where he and Marilyn celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Bill was most happy when spending time with his family and was an inspiration to them all. He loved sharing in their successes and accomplishments. Special thanks to Bill’s doctors at Lions Gate Hospital and the Care Staff on the Cardiac Floor. Cremation has taken place and a celebration for family and close friends will occur at a future date in North Vancouver, BC.
