Ann Marie SUTHERLAND nee Walker


December 19, 1928 – May 18, 2013

Ian passed away after a long battle with COPD.

He is predeceased by his first wife Merellia on December 22, 1987. He is leaving behind his partner and very best friend Gail Hetherington, his sons Rob (Lana), Ernie, Harold (Madeline) and daughter Barb. He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Michelle (Daryal), Randy (Afton), Thea, Ellaine (Chad), Methasse, Neil & Shawn, Jacob & Mathew and four great grandchildren Taylor, Sam, Olivia & Cohen.

The family would like to thank the staff at Arrowsmith Lodge, (the very special ones that looked after Ian and made him laugh and who spoiled him. You know who you are. The family can’t thank you enough). Also the friends that visited him, you made his day.

We often think of bygone days when we were all together, the family chain is broken now, but memories live on forever.

Donation’s can be made to the BC Lung Association or Elks & Royal Purple Fund for Children in Ian’s memory. No flowers please.

A service will be held at the Baptist Church on Pym Street in Parksville on June 10, 2013 at 1:00 p.m.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
