DAVID NEVIL PIGOTT July 20, 1949 - October 14, 2020 The family of David Pigott is heartbroken to announce his death on October 14, 2020 after a sudden, but brief illness. Predeceased by his brother, Arden and his parents, Edith (nee Alt) and Norman. He is survived by his loving wife, Carolyn and their two children, Kerry Alan and Jennifer Catherine (Sean), who were the lights of his life. His granddaughter, Veronica Paige Winchester, was a source of constant joy and happiness, even in his final days. David is also survived by his brother, Graham (Beverley), sister-in-law, Holly, cousins Jim (Karen), Maureen, Kathi and Bob (Jane) and many beloved nieces and nephews. He was very proud of his family and cherished the times spent together. He graduated from U of T in 1973 with a degree in Industrial Engineering, followed by Master of Industrial Engineering and Master of Business Administration. David's career began in 1973 at Eaton's, followed by senior executive positions at Canada Packers (now Maple Leaf Foods), Diversey Lever, Dare Foods, Weston Foods, Ganong Chocolates and Burnbrae Farms. He retired in 2015 and enjoyed many travel adventures around the world. David devoted his free time in retirement to volunteering on the Board of Lymphoma Canada - Ontario Chapter, as well as contributing to the Condominium Board of the Stonecroft Community in New Hamburg. David had a unique ability to connect and empathize with people from all walks of life. He was deeply interested in science and physics, and was a diehard Trekkie. He believed strongly that energy cannot be destroyed. Since we are all basically composed of energy, we know he will always be with us. He will be terribly missed. As per David's wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family interment will be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 519-749-8467. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to The Salvation Army, Lymphoma Canada, Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Liver Foundation. Special thanks to the nursing team and doctors in the transplant unit at the University Hospital, London. Visit for David's memorial.

Carolyn and family, my wife and I are saddened by the news of David’s passing.
I first met David when we were both engineering students at U of T. Although our careers followed different paths I was fortunate to periodically reacquaint myself with David primarily thru my very good friend and David’s cousin Jim Pigott. David had a wonderful and large personality, a good sense of humour and was always cheerful and ready to help.
Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of David.

Dave lived around the corner from our family (The Santagato's) in Downsview, Ontario and spent some memorable and mostly fun times at our family home. I saw him when he so graciously attended my brother Ron Santagato's funeral back in late January of this year. I remember Dave as a very thoughtful person back in the 60's and 70's and when I saw him in January we reminisced about those good old days. He was proud to tell me about his family and his grand daughter. It is obvious that he was a thoughtful and caring person. My thoughts go out to his wonderful family. Regards Susie Savedra (nee Santagato). Rest in peace dear David.

Having been friends with the Pigott family for over thirty years, I know that Dave will not only be missed but his memories will live forever in our hearts.
He was a wonderful person that loved his family above all and cherished the time he spent with them but never forgot his friends and we are proud to have been one of those friends.
Carmen and I are and will always be here for you. Our sincere and heartfelt condolences.
