TATE, Ian - September 17th, 1970 - June 21, 2021
Peacefully, surrounded by his family, after a lengthy battle with brain cancer, at Hillsdale Terraces in Oshawa.
Husband to Darlene Pursel, and devoted Father to Duncan and Harley.
Survived by his parents Barry and the Rev. Susan Tate of Fenelon Falls; his brother Graham Tate and Victoria (Theriault) of Oshawa; his father-in-law Bill Chaplin (late Liz Chaplin) and sister-in-law Heather Latam and Justin of Leamington; and his 10 nieces and nephews.
Obituaries rarely capture the individual to the ones who did not know them.
Ian was much more than merely a Son, Husband, Father, Brother, Uncle or Friend; He was a choir boy, a boy scout, a gifted musician, an actor, a scotch drinker, a gourmet chef, a world traveler, a board game connoisseur and a lover of all things bacon.
We celebrate him for his dry sense of humor and his insistence on living his life on his own terms.
Special thanks to the staff of Lakeridge Health Oshawa, Lakeridge Health Bowmanville, and Hillsdale Terraces in Oshawa for their exceptional skill, dedication, and caring.
A private family service will take place.
Arrangements entrusted to McINTOSH-ANDERSON-KELLAM FUNERAL HOME LTD., 152 King St. E., Oshawa (905-433-5558). In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in trust to the Education Accounts of Ian’s children.
