Obituary of Ian Welsh

It is with much sorrow that we announce the passing of Ian Welsh, long-time resident of Dawson Creek, British Columbia, on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at the age of 78 years. Ian went home, trusting in God and filled with gratitude. His very last words were a request, no, a command, to me, Sheila, his wife: Tell them how grateful I am. He repeated these six words three times, starting with a soft voice and by the third time, he spoke them loudly, with all the breath he had in him. Who am I to tell? All the people who touched Ians life. You will probably be the same people who met Ian and were touched by his life, I know because I, myself, was one of these people. I asked my good friend, Judy Boyer, another one of these people, to write the following poem to help broadcast Ians request: From the very first breath I drew on this earth My life has been touched by Gods gracious hand. The people He sent enriched my life so, Tell them how grateful I am. From a tiny wee babe in my dear mothers arms To a toddler, a child, a boy, then a man. Ive been carried along by the people of God. Tell them how grateful I am. The people who shared in my journey through life, There for a moment or through my life span; My family, career, my friends old and new Tell them how grateful I am. A Celebration of Life for Ian was held at the St James Presbyterian Church on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at 1:00pm. Pastor Megan Polowski officiated.
