May 18, 1980 – April 3, 2023
Surrounded by his family, Ian passed away on April 3, 2023 after a long battle with heart issues. We are heartbroken!
Ian is survived by his loving parents, Pam and Les and his sister Lauren. He also leaves an extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins to mourn his passing.
Growing up, Ian excelled at all sports – downhill skiing and Kung Fu were two of his favourites.
Everyone who knew Ian will remember him as a kind, caring and compassionate person. He always took the side of the underdog and fought for them. He was well-read and interested in many things, which made conversations with Ian engaging.
Equally well known among those who will fondly remember him is his love of animals. Ian befriended every dog or cat that crossed his path. He will be especially missed by Willow, his fur buddy who was always by his side.
Most of all Ian loved his family and was loved deeply by them. His passing has left a huge hole in all of our hearts. He will truly be missed every day of our lives.
We would like to thank Dr. Stanley Eng and his assistant Carla for their years of compassionate care. Special thanks to the amazing St. Boniface Hospital MICU staff for their support and comfort during this difficult time.
No formal funeral service will be held. A private family memorial will take place in the summer.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Ian’s memory to the Bruce Oake Recovery Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
“There are special people in our lives
who never leave us, even after they are gone.”
