Passed away peacefully in his sleep, in the early morning of March 13, 2021 at the age of 69. Survived by his loving wife Donna (McKendry) Sandy of 48 years. Cherished father of Sean (Maaike), and Derek (Hana). Adored grandfather of Liam. Brother and brother-in-law of Malcolm (Terry) and Stuart (Laura). Predeceased by his mum Elizabeth (2010) and his dad Roy (2014). Ian will be forever remembered by his numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins in Canada and Australia, and also fondly remembered by his dearest friends.
Ian was born in England, moved to Canada at a young age, initially Ontario, then moving west and working for Shell Chemicals. He was then transferred to the Rotterdam office for six years and took his family along for the ride. This allowed him to finally take the trip to Egypt that he had dreamt of since he was a young man. After the stint in Rotterdam they moved back to Calgary for 11 years to enjoy retirement. They finally settled in Lucan, ON so they could be near their children and Ian could work on the old Japanese motorbikes that he was most passionate about.
