Re: In Memory Of Edgar Arthur Pilon, EOS Dec. 27, 1954


Recommended Posts

My writing today comes from two-fold reasons. First, Christine and I wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. We hope you had a quiet time yesterday away from the hustle and hassle that too much merriment brings. We’re happy to know that Christmas Day (yesterday) did not bring us sad news.


My second reason is much more poignant, yet in support of the memory of a Canadian tow operator who died in the line-of-duty, December 27, 1954, sixty-five years ago. Edgar Arthur Pilon, a tow operator in small town Lancaster Ontario, husband, and father of four young children, was killed working a recovery on a snowy Canadian highway at the request of the RCMP.




Fast forward to October 2019, Christine and I had the honor to meet Mr. Pilon’s wife and sister at this year’s, Wall of the Fallen Memorial, in Chattanooga, and to be with them when their father’s name was added to the Wall. Although Edgar  Pilon’s life was taken from him so long ago, let this message be directed to his children and surviving family that we, the towing and recovery industry, uplift, support and remember their father’s memory.  Rest in peace Mr. Pilon, you are not forgotten.     R.
