Ian Thomas McPhail - age 77
To plant a memorial tree in honor of Ian Thomas McPhail, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
It is with profound sadness to announce that my big brother Ian (IMP) died on November 13th.
Ian was the only son of the late Thomas and Mamie McPhail.
Born in Glasgow Scotland on March 3rd. 1942, Ian and his family immigrated to Toronto in 1957.
At an early age it was obvious his passion was to entertain and he could be one funny man. During his life he performed at comedy clubs, on stage, did TV/print commercials (he was big in Barrie for years) and in living rooms around the country. Not only did he have a sharp wit, but he also showed a talent for writing and painting.
Ian is predeceased by his late wife Janice, his life partner Judy Welsh and his dear friend of over 50 yrs. Joan Grant.
Ian will be missed by his sister Eileen, brother-in-law Carl, family in Scotland and Australia, his friend and sponsor Bill Anderson, who was so helpful during Ian’s last days. Thanks go out to all who considered Ian a good mate, those who were there for him at his support groups and to all the caring medical and administrative staff at the Michael Garron Hospital.
Cremation has taken place.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Ian's name to your favourite charity or your local animal shelter.
