February 10, 1965 - February 9, 2021
Ian passed away Tuesday morning February 9th, 2021 due to heart complications. I had spoken with him several times the day before, this was usual since Nina’s passing, and there were no signs of what was to happen. Ian did not want a memorial even before COVID and certainly not since the outbreak. In advance, I apologize for not being able to share his loss with you. It is appropriate to want to come together and laugh, cry, and honor such a life. Memorials provide us all the opportunity to exchange stories and better appreciate the person we once knew. Ian and Nina’s ashes will be spread off the North shore of Oahu as soon as it is safer and appropriate to travel. Perhaps the next time you think of Hawaii, it will be with an enriched fondness because of your memories of Ian. Ian Carlisle was born in Toronto, Canada to Mary and William Carlisle. He is preceded in death by his wife and soul mate Nina and survived by his loving daughters Noelle, Shannon, Kassi, and Tori, devoted son Kenny, and most precious grandchildren Mya and George. He was a little hockey all-star that once scored six goals in a single game, forcing our mother to cheer for the other team. He was a dedicated employee of Continental, now United Airlines starting in 1984 and finishing as an Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic on 2/8/21. Generous and kind, he pulled off the road to assist many a mother, sister, and daughter with their car troubles. He had no filter so when provoked, delivered the uncensored version of what everyone else was thinking, while not holding a grudge. Ian was the most compassionate husband, father, grandfather and friend unequalled in his good spirit and selflessness. Thoughtful to the very end - we will miss him. In closing, thank you for your condolences. We are grateful for your stories and envious of anyone who shared Ian’s last few days with him because he was happy.
