at the age of 42 years:     

Celebration of Life will be held for Doug on August 6th from 1 pm to 4 pm at the Chase Creekside Center, 542 Shuswap Avenue, Chase, BC

“Gone to Soon”

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas Piggott.

Left to mourn is his grief-stricken family: his mom Maureen (Terry), dad Bill (Cindy), sisters Monica (Ewald), Cora, Pam (Dan) and Cheara, stepbrother Steven, grandpa Jim Piggott as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

Doug will be remembered for his love of hunting, fishing, biking, and camping.  Doug also enjoyed his time at Sun Peaks, where he worked on the ski hill and volunteered on the Fire Department.  He was also employed at Mica Dam as a custodian where he was regarded for his work.  For those that remember, Doug was a “neat freak”.  Most people will remember Doug for his Chatty personality; he was a social butterfly and had a great love for his friends and family.

Doug was the type of person who was always willing to help.  It didn’t matter if it was moving furniture or working on a friend’s vehicle, he always liked to be a part of things.  This being said, he would look for where the action was going on, he was a thrill seeker, always seeking out the next adventure!

Doug had a great love of animals.  In lieu of flowers a donation to the SPCA or Wildlife Federation in Doug’s memory would be a great way to honor him.

Our families will never be the same as Doug’s passing has left a huge void in our lives.  Part of us went with you ~ we love you Doug.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.


  1. My deepest condolences, Maureen, Terry and family, and also to Bill, Cindy and family. I will always remember Doug as such a cheerful, friendly young man, and enjoyed seeing him at family events. I am so happy that he had a life of enjoying his favourite things, and meeting life long friends along the way. Keep him always in your heart, and speak of him often. Know that he is just a gentle thought away. Love and hugs to you all, using this sad and difficult time.

  2. I am so shocked and saddened to hear about Doug’s passing. When I worked at Haldane Doug used to come to my office quite often to visit and later whenever I met him he would always stop for a chat. When he lived next door to the curling rink he used to stop in to visit when I was volunteering in the concession. Also saw him when we went skiing at Sun Peaks. He was always smiling and happy and had a story or two to tell. My condolences to Maureen & Terry and Bill & Cindy and all his siblings and family, there will be a big whole in that family. Hugs to all. Diana Endean
