In Loving Memory ~
It is with sadness that his family announce the passing of Arnold Elia Frederick Piragoff, QC, of Edmonton, Alberta, on Monday April 10, aged 83, following complications from pneumonia.
He was born in The Pas, Manitoba, son of Frederick Elia and Jean Mary (nee Galer) Piragoff, and educated at the Universities of Winnipeg and Manitoba (B.A., LL.B).

He is survived by his four children, Heath, Ian, Aryn, and Kara, his grandson Xavier, and his brothers, Ronald and Donald.
