CURRIE; Ian Herbert
June 14, 1925 ~ January 15, 2016
Dad (Ian) passed away peacefully in Abbotsford on January 15th, 2016 at the age of 90 with his loving wife Lorna at his side. Dad was born and raised in Nelson, BC. After graduating from high school, Dad studied at UBC and other universities to complete his Master’s Degree and Teaching Certificate. One of his early teaching positions led him to meet his sweetheart, Lorna Robertson. The two were married on December 20, 1955. Just three weeks ago the two were blessed to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. Dad and Mom have left a legacy of five children, David (Krista), Donald, Russell (Karen), Margaret (Steve), Catherine (Russell), (Nick), 23 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Ian was predeceased by his parents Herbert and Annie Currie, his son Donald Currie and grandson Gregory Ian Bouwman. Dad had a strong faith in God, witnessed by the life he lived. His sense of adventure and passion for learning brought him wonderful experiences and treasured memories. Dad had a heart full of gratitude and he was a soul who valued the people he met. He made time for everyone. His attention to details filled his stories with awe and curiosity. He was a thinker, and his plans were always well thought out. He was a good man, kind, compassionate and generous. Dad was truly loved and made a lasting impression on each heart he touched. Dad’s family sends a special thank you to the ACE nursing staff and doctors at ARH who cared for him with compassion and love. Dad’s Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, January 22, 2016 at 1:30 pm at Bakerview MB Church on Clearbrook Road, Abbotsford, BC. All are welcome.
