NEWBIGGING, Del - Del died with family at his bedside at Toronto's Princess Margaret Hospital on August 23, 2012 after a battle with cancer. Beloved husband of John Carolan, loving father of Martha (Debbie) and Joey (Andrea), proud grandpa of Owen and Simon, dear friend of Eva Ardiel. He will be missed by his large, loving Irish family and by his siblings, nieces and nephews in Ontario. Del was a teacher of visual arts for 35 years. On retirement from teaching he devoted his life to creating art. In 2001, along with Dora de Pedery-Hunt and several other artists, he founded the Medallic Art Society of Canada (MASC). In 2005 he created the monument to Alexander Wood that sits at the corner of Alexander and Church Streets in Toronto. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Del's life will be held at the Mount Pleasant Visitation Centre on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. on what would have been his 78th birthday.
