June 14, 1973 – February 5, 2021
It is with incredible sadness that we announce the passing of Ian Greer of Coleman, AB on February 5, 2021. He was 47 years of age.
Being born and raised in the Crowsnest Pass, Ian had a true appreciation for the area and he enjoyed it every chance he got. Whether hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, or camping with a cold Kokanee around the campfire, he loved spending time in the great outdoors. Over the years, Ian was an active member of the local bowling and curling clubs. He was well known for taking pride in his work whatever the task, for his tattoos, for loving his morning “Timmy’s”, and for his almost constant smile. What Ian cherished most in his life were his family and friends; he was a devoted son, a dedicated father, and a loyal friend; being a part of their lives brought him great happiness and he believed that you should always be there for each other with an open heart. Those who knew Ian best will forever remember his sweet, kind, and generous nature. In time, may our grief and dismay be overshadowed by happy memories.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life include his children, Mackenzie “Kenzie” and Alexander “Alex”; his brother, Scott Greer; his niece, Heather (Eldon); his nephew, Alex (Mikayla); as well as his many friends whom he considered family.
He was predeceased by his mother, Mary “May” Greer (Née: Graham) and his father, Bill Greer.
A Gathering of Family & Friends will be held at a later date when Covid-19 restrictions allow. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass Health Foundation “Mental Health Program” (PO Box 455, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
