July 8, 1927 – July 8, 2020
on his 93rd Birthday –
It is with heavy hearts and much sadness we announce the passing of our father & grandfather Roy Pigeon on his 93rd birthday, July 8, with his family by his side.
Roy was born in Drumheller in 1927 and moved to Jasper in 1954 where he met and married Marg. Together they raised five children. After 30 years with Alberta Power, Dad retired and moved west to BC to enjoy the warmer climate. They settled in Enderby and spent the next 25 years enjoying the slower pace in this small town.
In March of 2006 Roy lost Marg after almost 50 years of marriage. Being a tough old bird, Dad soldiered on spending time building boats, mowing lawns and playing crib with his good friend Ken. Dad received his Life Membership in 1987 at Branch 31 Jasper, he was a volunteer with the Royal Canadian Legion and in 2005 received the highest award given any member, the Meritorious Medal of Service at Brand 98 Enderby.
He is survived by his kids Ross (Joan), Ken (Deb), Wendy and Sue, Murray, Janes (Jesse) and grandkids Clinton, Jessie, Timothy, Jorja and Kallie.
Roy will be sorely missed but will always be in our hearts. Rest easy now Dad.
As per Roy’s wishes, there will be no service. Memorial donation in his honour may be made to the Enderby Legion or the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
