Funeral Home Nepean - Garden Chapel
Ian William Eckersley
We are ever so sad to announce the death of our dearest Ian on June 8th, 2016. He is survived by his loving wife and partner Carolyn, dearest mother Susan, darling sister Anne (Howell), his mother-in-“lore” Patricia and his cherished sons Josh (Jennifer), Steven (Sandra) and Sam; his treasured grandchildren Harrison, Liam, Ethan, Benjamin, Addison. Ian was born on November 20, 1956 in Newcastle Australia. He was a dual citizen but was always an Aussie first who fiercely loved his Canadian and Australian families equally. He was passionate about rugby, enjoyed cottage life, golfing, and revelled in a good bargain (Eckernomics). In recent years his lifelong love of the water led him to scuba diving with his mates and that was how he spent his last hours. Friends are invited to attend a visitation at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Road, Nepean, on Sunday, June 12 from 1:00 pm until a Memorial Service which will be held in the Chapel at 3:00 pm, followed by a celebration at the Royal Oak in Centrepointe. Ian was a blood donor for many years and loved the fellowship of a pub. So donate a pint of blood then buy your mate a pint of beer in Ian’s honour.
