Ian was married to Judy for 48 years and shared a love so strong, they were best friends and soul mates and did everything together, a rare and powerful love. Ian grew up in Wasaga Beach where he met Judy and spent all his summers on a boat water skiing. Ian loved fishing, ice fishing and camping and will be reunited with his best friends John and Mark whom he lost this year as well. Ian was a second father to Chris and Melissa’s friends growing up and will be greatly missed. Ian will be missed by his dog Yoda, his best friend.

There will be a celebration of life at the Italian Canadian Club later as per Ian’s request.


A LIMB has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me”.
Remember the BEST TIMES, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.

In memory of Ian, donations to the Guelph Humane Society and Epilepsy Foundation would be appreciated.
