GRANT, Dr. Ian Murray
June 2nd, 1921-
November 26th, 2012
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Dr. Ian Murray Grant on November 26, 2012 at Peace Arch Hospital at the age of 91. Ian is survived by his devoted wife and best friend of 48 years, Gail (nee Oswald), beloved sons, Bruce (Martha), Glen (Michelle), Eric (Kathryn), grand twins Justin and Kailey, brother Nigel (Mary), nieces, nephews, cousins and many great friends worldwide. Predeceased by his sister Shirley in Huddersfield, England. Born in Dundee, Scotland, Ian graduated as a Medical Doctor of Surgery from St. Andrew's University in 1944 and served with the Royal Army Medical Corps from 1945 to 1959, serving in India, Malaysia, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom. Upon leaving the services, he moved to Winnipeg to set up a general surgical practice named 'The Graham Medical Group'. It was there that he met Gail and where his three sons were born. In 1979, he and his family relocated to Tsawwassen, BC where he became the Medical Administrator at Vancouver General Hospital until his retirement in 1986. As an active member of many organizations, such as the Winnipeg St. Andrew's Society and the South Surrey Garden Club, his passing will be felt by many. We would like to express immense appreciation for the excellent medical care given to Ian by the physicians of Fraser Health Authority and the compassionate care given by the nursing staff at Peace Arch Hospital. The family invite friends to join in a Celebration of Life at the Pacific Inn Resort, 1160 King George Blvd. Surrey, BC on Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 1:00 pm. If so desired, memorial contributions to the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society, 15521 Russell Ave. White Rock, BC.
