Ian Alexander MacGregor
With faith and love, Joyce (nee Burton) Class of 62 OCH School of Nsg (Civic L&D nurse), friend, partner, true love for 45 years, had to let me take my final trip alone.
Ian, as he lived quietly and strongly – fighting and conquering adversities – with the help of every doctor and nurse he met (we have so many to thank) earning their admiration of his strength and healing powers, left our world on Thursday evening, December 22, 2005.
Born on the farm at Russell 70 years before, he was the fourth generation to clear and farm the land. He leaves to share his qualities and pride, his daughter Catherine (Rob Reynolds) and his grandson Sean Reynolds; his son Cameron (Nancy Goupil) and grandchildren Tristan and Kayla MacGregor. His children and grandchildren were his legacy and shining stars.
Visitation and candlelight service was held on Dec. 27 at the Russell United Church.
Donations may be made in his memory to the Canadian Cancer Society (Plasmacytoma, Myeloma and Leukemia Research) or the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation
Arrangements handled under the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home and Chapel.
