George Piccinin

With heavy hearts, we are saddened to announce the sudden passing of George Piccinin on June 18, 2024, in his home.  George lived and loved his family and friends with a gigantic and generous heart. He loved to cook and share food and homemade wine, was an avid gardener, and a talented woodworker and builder. We will especially miss his wonderful, unmistakeable, and playful sense of humour.

George was predeceased by his first wife, Beryl (nee Anderson), and shared the last ten years of his life with his second love, wife Becky (Hampton, nee Carroll). He was predeceased by his brother, John (Susan) and parents, Silvio and Angelina. He is missed profoundly by his children Andrew (Shannon) and Carolyn (Danny), his grandson Taran, his stepson Chris Hampton (Tanya), bonus grandkids Abbey and Bryce, his cherished brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, and family members and friends in Ontario, the Maritimes, Western Canada, and Italy.

Celebration of life in George’s honour will be held on Sunday, July 21, 2024 from 2 – 5 p.m. at East Elgin Community Complex, 531 Talbot St. W., Aylmer, ON.  In lieu of flowers, online condolences and donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada can be made through the online memorial page at The family would deeply appreciate a happy or funny memory of George shared via email or on the Tribute Wall on the memorial website.
