Oct. 20, 1917 – Jan. 28, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ian Galpin. Ian passed away peacefully Jan. 28, 2014 in 100 Mile House. Ian was predeceased by his wife Tressa in 2002 and his grandson Clint in 1989. Ian was born in North Vancouver to James and Margaret Galpin and was one of eight siblings.
He moved to Merritt, B.C. as a teen and back to North Vancouver then eventually settling in the 100 Mile House area. Ian had many vocations but is widely known for clearing most of the land for what is now the suburban area in 100 Mile House, even having a street named after him.
Ian is survived by his brother Albert (Bernice), his four sons: Rod (Dorothy), Vern (Sandi), Rick (Anne) and Terry (Carol); his five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A memorial service was held in 100 Mile House on Feb. 3, 2014.
