Eric John Bigelow, 26, of Vancouver, died June 6th, 2014 from cardiac arrest. He was born in Victoria, the son of Fred Bigelow and Sarah Savage. He graduated from Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School in 2006. Eric received his Bachelor of Commerce from the Sauder School of Business, UBC in 2011 and subsequently worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers. He received his Chartered Accountant designation in May.
Aside from his many academic and professional accomplishments, he was driven to enjoy life, from the most remote wilderness locations to the heart of Vancouver and Manhattan, and all points in between. Above all, he had an uncommon ability to foster and maintain strong, loving friendships with an incredible number of people throughout his short but rich life.
Eric is survived by his partner, Kyla Brophy of North Vancouver, his parents, his sister Stephanie and brother Alan, his maternal grandfather, Robert Savage, and his close friend Graeme Yamagishi, to say nothing of his large extended family and truly amazing number of friends.
A Celebration of Eric’s Awesomeness will be held on Saturday, June 21st at 1pm at the Canadian Forces Base Comox Officers’ Mess. The family asks that you consider donations to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.
