It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John (known as Ian) Gibb Beveridge on June 12, 2014. Ian passed away peacefully with family by his side. Ian is predeceased by his wife Pat, parents Gracie and William, and brother Drew. He is survived by his sisters Jeanie and Amy, his best friend Taby, his three sons Colin (Christine), Glen (Judy) and Drew (Linda), grandchildren Kyle (Lindsey), Niki (Colin), Holli (Chris), Sean, Tyler and Boomer (Natalie), and great grandchildren Peyton, Oaklie and Charley. Ian lived life to the fullest. He was born in Dundee, Scotland and raised in Tayport, he moved to Canada in 1948, and settled in Toronto Ontario. It was here that he met his wife Pat. They moved to Vancouver, BC in 1952 and raised their three sons. Ian and Pat eventually retired in Chilliwack BC. The cottage at Birch Bay was his pride and joy and the gathering place for family and friends. Ian was known for his love of birds and had multiple feeders and shelters. His famous bird whistle will always be remembered. Special thanks to Dr. Quayle and the staff at the Bradley Center. There will be a private service for the family at a later date. In lieu of flowers please send donations to Bradley Center.
