Recently, he had been preparing for the auction sale site on his acreage. Ian loved books and was an avid reader, past hunter, golfer, and a competitive curler. He loved fishing in the summer, and winter ice fishing with his friend John Lamport. He loved nature and enjoyed many evenings sitting in his yard with the bonfire, Pat by his side, gazing at the stars and observing the planes as they flew over. He enjoyed target shooting with friends and would carefully show his cousins children how to use a gun safely. He had an ability to sketch, particularly nature and animal photos. He had planned to write a book on his life and experiences. Funeral service and the celebration of his life will take place on Thursday, April 18 at 10:30 am, at the Warren United Church, Warren, MB.
