He is survived and deeply missed by many adoring family and friends including his immediate family, son Robert (Shelley), grandchildren Amy, Nicole (Steve), Ryan (Stacey) and 2 beautiful great-grandchildren Brayden and Emma. Ian proudly worked for CBC radio as a Radio Technician for 31 years, retiring in 1978. Ian lived the majority of his life in Vancouver, moving to Campbell River in 1997 to be near family. He happily lived the last years of his life counting the cruise ships from the deck of his home overlooking the ocean in Campbell River. Ian’s family would like to thank Robert and Shelley and Gail for all their help in caring for Ian. An open house gathering for friends and family will be held at Ryan Stephen’s house on Saturday, April 21st from 2-4 pm at 1387 Marguerite St. Coquitlam.
