Ian William York Grant

The family of Ian William York Grant are saddened by his passing on Thursday July 9, 2020 at the age of 89 yrs old. He suffered the last few years with Alzheimer's and succumbed to the disease. Ian is well known in the soccer community, particularly for his efforts in organizing and coaching women's soccer in Burlington. He is survived by his longtime partner Debbie Patterson, his children Kevin Grant (Lynne), Carole Burnham (Don) and Laurie Soder (Rick); his six grandchildren, Paul, Brian (Amy), Scott (Kim), Katie (Jarin), Kristie (Cameron) and Austin (Michelle), and his great-grandchildren Mia and Joelle. The family wish to thank the Long Term Care staff at Billings Court Manor for all their work and support in making Ian as comfortable as possible these last few years. Due to Covid, and Ian's wishes, there will be no ceremony. He asks that you hold dear the memories of the "good old times" with him. Donations in his honour can be made to the Alzheimer's Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Ian Grant. . . the man. . .the myth. . .the legend.

So sorry to hear your news. We met your Dad at the Soccer Club, so many years ago - and have fond memories of those days.
