Ian Nikolas Wolfe-Weisman
Sept. 3, 1982 - July 22, 2020
Ian Nikolas Wolfe-Weisman passed through the veil July 22, 2020 after a short illness. He is survived by his mother, Deborah A. Wolfe; his father, Lammy A. Weisman both of Oklahoma City; brother, Elijah B. Weisman of Los Angeles; and many aunts, uncles and cousins across the country. Ian was born in Oklahoma City Sept. 3, 1982. He, along with his older brother, were two of the original Paseo kids, experiencing many artistic adventures on "the street." He developed lifelong friendships which he treasured through the years. On the Paseo is where he first met his best friend and soul mate Blake Feuerborn. Ian graduated from Classen School of Advanced Studies where his circle of lifelong friends grew to include Sam and Sarai Spencer, Casey and Kelly Beeman, Saltee Rodell, Jessica Maier, Greg Poole, Skye Gant, Danny Edwards, Diane Genther and many more creative individuals. Ian settled in Oregon after high school where he took college classes and then quickly landed in Portland as a cook, last being at Hungry Tiger for many years. He enjoyed creating special treats for his many buds and cooking battles with Mike Kelley. It was in Portland he found the love of his life, Michelle Sumida, and expanded his circle of true friends: Anni, Mike, Meg, Coby, Tate, Harrison, Seth, Sonya, Chris, Kiki, Rain, Hanna, Henderson and so many more. Ian was a man of many talents. Besides being a poet, visual artist and musician, he could quote every episode of Friends, Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm. He embodied the soul of Bob Dylan. Ian will be remembered for his quick wit, his kind and loving heart, the warmth of his caring, his recall of minutiae, his poetry, his art and his undying love for his family and friends. Ian's face smiled and his heart grew when he got to be with the babies (Godson Henry, Leona, Marvin and Mabel). Ian was a faithful and loyal friend who was there when you needed him. He always wanted people to be happy being themselves, to feel wanted, to have fun and to be kind to one another. Rest in Peace dear, sweet Ian. Memorial pending.
