It is with profound sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Ian Graham Priestly, age 48, of Port Dover, Ontario, surrounded by his wife and children on Jan. 9, 2016. He will be sadly and forever missed by his family. He is survived by his wife, Anita and the three loving children they were blessed with; Tiana, Anthony and Vanessa. He is also survived by his loving parents Michael and Maisie Priestly of Nanaimo, B.C.; sister Jane (Brian) Saunders, brother Alastair (Susan) Priestly, sister Heather Priestly and several nieces, nephews, in-laws, cousins, aunts and uncles. He took great pride in his work as a Forestry Engineer. Climbing the mountains of B.C. was his greatest passion next to being a wonderful, devoted, and amazing father and husband.
A memorial service was held on Sunday January 17, 2016 at 2pm at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Nanaimo, British Columbia followed by a private family reception.
In lieu of flowers a scholarship fund has been established for Ian’s children, please contact THOMPSON WATERS FUNERAL HOME 102 First Ave Port Dover (519)-583-1530 for more information.
A celebration of life in Port Dover will be announced at a further date.
