Ian Smith Newbigging

July 27, 1939 – November 11, 2019
We are shocked and saddened to announce the (sudden) passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Ian Smith Newbigging.
Ian was born on July 27,1939 in Hawick Scotland and immigrated to Canada in 1968 with his wife Marge and his young daughter Pauline. They settled in Winnipeg and had another daughter, Angela and a son, Stuart.
The family moved to Hope, BC in 1979, where Ian and Marge spent the rest of their 54 year marriage.
He is survived by his wife Marge, his daughters Pauline (Cal) and Angela (Al) and his son Stuart (Jennifer) as well as 6 grandchildren Nathan (Autumn), Lindsay (Tyler), Hunter (Kenzie), Bowe, Angus and Iyla. He is also survived by his family in Scotland, brother Jim (Margaret) and sister Ellen (Alan) and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ian loved to spend time in his yard and ‘puttering’ about in his workshop. He will remain forever in our hearts. Thank you to the Brethren of the Hope Masonic Lodge for their friendship and support and thank you to Dr. Botha for his kindness.
A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, November 23rd at 1 pm in the Hope United Church Hall.
