On Saturday, June 24th our family lost a husband, father and grandfather, Ian Shypanski, at the age of 67.
Ian was happiest when riding his motorcycle or out in nature camping and fishing. He loved to work with his hands and made a living doing so as a Dental Service Technician for 35 years. If you ever needed a helping hand, you could count on Ian to be there. If you ever needed a good story and a good time, Ian would also be there!
Ian is survived by his wife Mary Jane, his son Adam (Maija), his daughter Erin (Brad), his grandchildren Linden, Beatrice, Bram and Emery, his mother Pauline and his sister Della. He was predeceased by his brother Bruce.
We will celebrate Ian's life on Wednesday, July 5th at 2:00 at Trinity Funeral Home, 10530 116 St.

In lieu of flowers we ask you to donate to the pet rescue organization of your choice.

  1. Our heart hurts, Mary Jane, for you and the family. Please be gentle with yourself and remember that Albert and I are thinking about you during this time. We have enjoyed years of friendship with you and Ian and wish you great peace and comfort.

    Sending love from miles away, Petra & Albert den Otter
