Ian Aitken
1925 – 2011
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Ian Aitken announces his passing at the age of 86 years. His passing occurred on March 24, 2011, at Pasqua ICU surrounded and supported by his family. Ian is lovingly remembered and cherished by his wife Ellen Aitken of Regina, daughter Lynn Carle (husband Brian) of Saskatoon and grandson Dr. Scott Walen of Calgary. He is also survived by his twin sister Lorna Jones of Red Deer and step-sister Carole Dunn of Sudbury. Ian will also be remembered by many nieces and nephews, friends and former colleagues. He was predeceased by his parents Hugh and Florence Aitken, first wife Eunice, and sisters Frances, Margaret, and Marie. Duncan Ian Aitken was born in Edam, Saskatchewan on January 25, 1925. Born into a Scottish family, the birth of twins Ian and Lorna on Robbie Burns Day was indeed a celebration of heritage. He spent most of his childhood and school years in Kindersley. Ian joined the Army and was posted in Belgium during World War II. Upon his return from the war he followed in his father's footsteps and began a career with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, serving as manager for 42 years of branches in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan. After retiring from CIBC branches in Regina he worked with the Office of Commissionaires for several years. Fondly known as "D.I." to many, Ian loved playing and watching the game of curling, watching baseball and football, being a member of the Regina Gladiola Society, and hosting gatherings with family, friends, and neighbours. For the past years Ian enjoyed annual trips to Puerto Vallarta with Ellen. His love and pride of family, strong work ethic, quiet strength, and genuine interest in all whom he met will serve as his legacy and inspiration. Ian's family would like to sincerely thank the staff of the Pasqua ICU for their compassionate care and support. Memorial donations in Ian's honour may be made to the Canadian Cancer Agency or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. As by Ian's request, there will be no funeral service. There will be a private internment at a future date. Arrangements are entrusted to Lee's Funeral Home. To leave an online message of condolence, please visit www.leefunerals.com
Funeral Director Joan Wassill. Arrangements under the direction of Lee Funeral Home and Crematorium, Regina, SK.
