It is with great sadness that I share with you the passing of my father, David Bigelow. My father passed away peacefully on Tuesday night, June 27th, after having been diagnosed with metastatic melanoma fifteen months ago. My family, as well as our extended family at Bigelow Tea, are completely devastated but grateful for the time we had together. He was an extraordinary leader who led our company, and the tea industry, with the highest level of integrity and an unwavering spirit of determination.
My father was my mentor for my entire life both personally and professionally. He never wavered from the traits I admired the most. He was a humble, grateful and a kind man. He leaves a big hole for so many of us, but we will continue forward with the lessons he taught us all….think about others before self. I have been the luckiest daughter in the world having my father, David C. Bigelow, by my side for 63 years. He was truly one of the greatest gifts in my life.
With great sorrow,
