ALEXANDER, Ian Harry
With courage and dignity, on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013 at the age of 56, Ian passed away surrounded by his family. Adored father and father-in-law of Kealy and Dominic, beloved grandfather of Benjamin, cherished son of Gordon and Hilda, and loving brother and brother-in-law of Greg and Elaine, Jill and Karl, and Charles and Johanne, he will stay in our hearts forever. Ian will be greatly missed by his nieces and nephews Julia, Charles and Matt Alexander, Dan and Sarah Pinault, and Victoria and Christopher-Thomas Alexander. He will also be missed by his many friends, especially Ross Christie and Doug Bell who loyally supported Ian through his long battle with pulmonary fibrosis. Ian's big heart, his passion for life and the game of golf, and his devotion to family and friends were an inspiration to us all. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered. The family will receive relatives and friends at the funeral home on Friday, April 12th from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. The funeral service will take place Saturday, April 13th at 3 p.m. at the Montreal West Presbyterian Church, 160 Ballantyne Ave. North, H4X 2C1, followed by a reception at the church. All are invited to PJ's Pub, 6910 St. Jacques Street, Montreal, after the reception to raise a toast to Ian and celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to The Alexander Family Foundation (www.tafforg.org), dedicated to all those suffering from pulmonary fibrosis.
