Fredric Leigh Pilon

Fredric Leigh Pilon, 86, died July 26, 2022, at home in SunBird. He is survived by his loving wife of 30 years, Mary.

Major Pilon retired from the Washington State Patrol in June, 1993, after 35 years of dedicated service.

Fred and Mary moved to SunBird in October, 1994. Fred was active in the Men’s Club, Irish Club, NW annual gathering, and Neighbors Who Care.

Sometimes known as “Santa,” he presided over parties, club meetings, and parades, Albertson’s and the SunBird clubhouse! This was one of the biggest joys of his life, and he talked about it with great fondness in his final days.

Fred will be missed for his unique sense of humor, generous spirit, and his willingness to step up and help with whatever he can. In addition to Mary, Fred is survived by his son Lee Pilon (Megan), daughter Laurie Pilon (Dan), and Mary’s daughter Sue Moses (John) and son Bob Otstot (Twila). Fred also has five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life will be held with family and close friends at a future date to be held in Washington.

Many thanks to Savior Hospice, Santé Rehab, and Select Home Care for their support.
