John Munn "Ian" Nesbitt
November 4, 1946 - September 5, 2016
NESBITT, Ian - John Munn Ian Nesbitt, Born in Glasgow, Scotland on November 4, 1946, passed away at home surrounded by the love of his family on Monday, September 5, 2016. Beloved high school sweetheart, husband and best friend of Susan. Proud, loving Father and Papa to Scott (Grytsje Schurer), Dries and Fenna; Tammy (Jason Stephian), Isaac and Jadyn; Heather (Jordan Lehigh), Ronin, Cullen and the late Mia. Dearest older brother of Christine Nesbitt (Keith Beaver). Ian was a teacher and department head of Physical Education with the Hamilton Board of Education for 32 years, and will be especially remembered as a coach of many sports teams. He enjoyed 17 years of retirement, spending time in Florida during the winter, at Disney World, and at the trailer in Honey Harbour throughout the summer. During his short battle with cancer, so many of his former teaching colleagues, players, and students visited and called. His “camping friends and neighbours” have been there to support Ian and his family. He was dearly loved and will be truly missed. Special thanks to family doctor Shane Guckian, the CCAC, and especially Kyle for providing his expertise and comfort to the family. We would not have been able to provide Ian’s wish to stay at home without their help. His family surrounded him with love and laughter. Family and friends will be received at the DODSWORTH & BROWN FUNERAL HOME, Ancaster Chapel, 378 Wilson Street East, Ancaster from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, September 8th, and from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, September 9th. The Funeral Service will take place in the funeral home chapel on Saturday September 10th at 11 a.m., with interment at White Chapel Memorial Gardens. Cremation has taken place. Memorial donations to the Cancer Assistance Program, 569 Concession Street, Hamilton L8V 1B2, would be appreciated by Ian and his family. Online condolences available at www.dbancaster.ca
