Obituary Rose, Ian Charles. On August 6, 2011, Ian passed away peacefully at his home in Bridgetown, Nova Scotia at the age of 60 following a courageous battle with cancer. His daughter Stephanie was with him, and bore witness to his never-ending strength and spirit. Ian was the son of the late Hugh and Ida Rose of Sherbrooke, Quebec; dear brother to Margaret, Eleanor (Brian Cullen) and the late Leona (John Kelso). He is survived by his children Janis (Ray Whorpole), Eric (Bera Naulaq), and Stephanie (Jesse Gilbert) as well as his grandchildren Jacob, Sean, Joshua and David. Ian grew up in Sherbrooke, Quebec; attended Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia and from there moved to what is now Nunavut "for two years" and stayed for over thirty. His love for the north stayed with him even as he settled into retirement in Bridgetown, where he reunited with good friends from University. A celebration of his life will take place in Bridgetown, Nova Scotia on Sunday August 14th at 3:00 p.m. in the Kaulbach Family Funeral Home, friends and family are welcome.
