Ian, beloved husband of Sharla Quigley of Calgary, passed away on April 2, 2018 at the age of 45 years.

Ian was born and raised in Kimberley BC. As a teenager he worked at Perry’s Pizza in Kimberley’s Platzl. He moved to Calgary on his 18th birthday, started and continued working at Canada Safeway for almost 20 years. Ian then moved on to work for Water Services at the City for 8 years.

He loved attending concerts, and theatre productions. Ian was an avid collector of assorted old fashioned telephones. He also collected numerous pieces of memorabilia for his favorite sports teams… Toronto Maple Leafs, New England Patriots, and Calgary Stampeders.

    My condolences to Ian’s family & friends. We went to school together and shared our own little irony. He’s Ian Robert and I’m Robert Ian, and we were both born on June 26th 1972. Needless to say, we used to get lots of school stuff, etc etc, mixed up regularly. It was our own little joke on the world. It’s like I’ve lost a little bit of myself!!
