The family of Ian Caldwell are very saddened to announce his passing.? Ian will be remembered for his quick wit, sense of humour, and ability to strike a conversation and leave a smile on the face of those he just met.
Ian was born and raised in Regina, Sk except for his high school years when his parents moved to Alida, Sk after buying the Alida Hotel. After high school Ian moved back to Regina where he met and married Pat Cuming in 1966. In 1969 Ian joined the Leader Post as a news photographer later becoming their Chief Photographer and Managing Photo Editor until retiring Sept 13, 1996.
In 2002 Ian and Pat decided to move to Vancouver Island and chose Duncan as the place to call home.? They both fell in love with the area and feel fortunate to have met and made so many wonderful new friends.
Ian leaves behind his wife Pat, their son and daughter-in-law Shaun and Kristy and Grampa’s pride and joy Brendan and Erica. Our daughter Stacey and his much loved Grandkitties Neko and Kuma. Ian’s sister, nephew and niece Margo Livingston (predeceased Al), Ward (Deidra) and Lesley (Jon). Brother-in-law Doug Cuming, sister-in-law Susan Etheridge, plus many wonderful nieces and nephews, and a long list of close family friends.
Ian was predeceased by his mother and step-father Evelyn and Marshall Caldwell, Ian’s father Stan Kerr, plus brothers & sister-in-law.
Although Ian has left this world, he leaves behind many fond memories that will continue to put both smiles on our faces and tears in our eyes.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Cowichan Golf and Country club, 4955 Trans Canada Hwy Duncan at 2pm, Sunday, September 13, 2015.
