The Rev. Dr. Cedric Pettigrew (Class of 1969)

The Presbyterian College extends sincere condolences to the family and friends of the Rev. Dr. Cedric Pettigrew on the news of his passing. Cedric was a graduate of the college (1969) and the Doctor of Divinity degree (honoris causa) was also conferred on him by the College in 2017. Cedric was a meaningful part of the College community and supporter of our mission. In recent years he served on the Board of Governors of the College. We are grateful for everything Cedric has contributed through his life and ministry, and commit him to the gracious care of God, in Christ.

The following obituary was recently printed by the family of the Rev. Dr. Pettigrew.

It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Cedric Pettigrew on July 17, 2021 at Queensway Carleton Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario at the age of 81.

Cedric was fortunate to serve Congregations in Spencerville ON, Preville QC, Montreal QC, Tyne Valley, PEI, Westville NS, Windsor ON, Halifax NS and Ottawa ON.

He was awarded the degree Doctor of Divinity (honoris causa) in 2017 by the Presbyterian College in Montreal QC, for his lifelong commitment to the church.

During his spare time, he loved spending time with family and friends, reading, travelling, watching curling, and cheering on the Blue Jays.
