Ian Ecott Efford

January 4, 1936 – June 7, 2020
Ian died peacefully on Sunday morning after suffering a heart attack on Saturday evening.
He was greatly loved and will be sorely missed by his wife, Shirley, his children, Brian, Karen, Duncan and Sonja, and their partners: Coco, Eva and Pierre, and by his grandchildren: Alexander, Jamaerah, Jennika, Meaghan, Siobhan, Ian, Dylan, Jackson, Emma, Hanna, Leena and Shian and their partners.
Ian is fondly missed by his former colleagues and students at UBC, by his associates in the Federal Government, and by gardeners on the Island for whom he served as mentor and friend.
Many thanks to the staff at Cowichan District Hospital and BC Ambulance for their kindness and care.
Rest in Peace.
