Passed away at the cottage surrounded by all his loving family on Friday, August 28th, 2020 on his 75th birthday.
Beloved husband and best friend of Linda for 53 years.
Loving father of Nancy McCallum (Gordon), David (Alexis) and Allan (Irene). Cherished Grandad of Cameron, Claire, Jane and Kipling.
Dear brother of Tamara Hopkins (late Robert), Anthony Biddle (Karlene) and Kimberly Biddle (Susan).
Fondly remembered by his family and friends.
Devon attended University of Toronto, where he met his two great loves, Linda and engineering.
Following his graduation in 1967, he established the engineering firm D.G. Biddle & Associates in 1974. This legacy continues to this day to contribute to the growth of Oshawa and Durham Region.
His own good fortune inspired him to contribute to causes and initiatives he cared deeply for, both locally and internationally. These included Oshawa Parkwood Rotary, Rotary International, Parkwood Estate, Camp Samac, Ontario Tech University, University of Toronto and many others.
He cherished his family and was dedicated to building a wonderful life for them. This included the spectacular cottage on Balsam Lake that he built much of with his own hands. This became the place for family and friends to gather, celebrate and have fun creating lasting memories. It is there he spent his final days.
He was an adventurous spirit and travelled the world, visiting every continent, but always returning to his favourite destination; HOME.
