Westford – Dayle R. Pigeon, 64, died early Friday morning September 8, 2017, with his loving family by his side. Dayle was a man whose family came first and foremost, particularly in the life he shared with his beloved wife, Ann, and their two children, Anna and Danielle in Westford, Vt. Dayle also dearly loved his two grown children, Shauna and Jordan, now residing in Binghamton, NY.
Dayle was born in St. Albans on March 28, 1953, the son of Roland and Nettie (Burnor) Pigeon.
He served in the U.S. Navy and was a man of all trades. Whether it be a car, commercial vehicle or large equipment, Dayle could repair it. He was often found working in the garage alongside his father, Roland and sometimes his brother George, until the wee hours of the morning. He established his own excavation business, and used his skills to lay the foundation of his home with Ann and the two girls. He put in a special effort to create a large yard for his daughters to play in when they were young. Square Dancing to the fiddle tunes of his father, Roland, and his Happy Ramblers, as well as fishing at the local streams and rivers in his hometown were his favorite pastimes. Unfortunately, Dayle suffered from a brain aneurysm in 2000 which prevented him from pursuing his chosen trade and favored activities in the following years.
But above all else, Dayle continued to love his family.
He is survived by his wife Ann Cavanaugh Pigeon and their daughters Anna and Danielle, all of Westford, his daughter Shauna and son Jordan and wife, Lindsey, all of Binghamton, NY, his seven grandchildren, his mother Nettie Pigeon, his brother George Pigeon and wife Noreen, all of Westford, his sister Luane Pigeon and husband Andrew Jacob of Tempe, AZ., and all of his large extended in-laws, nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts and cousins.
Dayle was predeceased by his father, Roland Pigeon, in April, 2017.
Memorial contributions in Dayle’s memory may be made to Love Your Brain Foundation, 109 Park Road
Windsor, VT 05089.
