BIGELOW, Dawson  December 1, 1941 – May 5, 2020 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear son, father, grandfather, and uncle at the age of seventy-eight. Predeceased by his devoted wife, Norma, and his younger brothers and sisters, Ernie, Connie, Debbie, Myles, and Murray. He will be greatly missed by his mother, Grace; children: Carey (Brian) and Darren (Claudia); and grandchildren: Liam and Nathan; and many nieces and nephews.

He always enjoyed a laugh while visiting his family and friends. Dawson and Norma especially enjoyed visits from their grandchildren, Liam and Nathan.
Dawson was a very modest, kind, hardworking person who was always willing to help others. As a residential contractor, Dawson was known as a professional renovator, which included renovations on heritage homes in Montreal. He helped fulfil many homeowners’ dreams by transforming their homes into a better living experience.

We have solace in knowing Norma and Dawson are at peace together.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Desforges Funeral Home, 188 rue Principale, Grenville, QC - (819) 242-2113. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation to The Montreal Chest Institute Foundation (mcifoundation.ca) for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) would be greatly appreciated. Condolences may be sent online by visiting www.desforges.ca.

    Dear Darren, Claudia, Nathan and Liam,
    Although we only had only the briefest of encounters with your Dad/Grandfather, he left us with the strong impression of a stoic, gentle and humble man. No doubt, his passing leaves a hole that cannot be filled, but we pray that the memories you cherish will be a continuing source of comfort in the days ahead.
    Sincerest sympathies,

  4. John Noran & Jackie Moore dit :

    To Dawson’s Family,

    So sorry to hear of Dawson’s passing.

    For over thirty years he was the key figure in the ongoing rebuilding of our home, having TWICE rebuilt our kitchen, bath and powder room among numerous other projects. He became a good and treasured friend, accompanying us through births, birthdays, anniversaries and passings, among other milestones. We never met Norma, but for years we exchanged Christmas Cake (mine) for cookies (hers).

    What we remember most about Dawson was that once the tools were laid aside, the kitchen table discussions began on a full gamut of topics with no end in sight, abetted with coffee and occasionally by the odd dram of Scotch. Sometimes the discussions reached dinner time at which point we invited him to stay, insisting that he call Norma so that she wouldn’t worry about his whereabouts.

    Truly a caring, honourable, honest (no written estimates needed and had to nag for a bill) and dedicated man who we will deeply miss.

    Our sincerest thought are with you in your mourning … let us lift a glass to his life.

  5. Elena Celsi dit :

    Dear Darren and Claudia, Nathan and LIam,
    Our sympathies and our prayers. May your father and grandfather rest in peace.
    Elena Celsi
