Ian worked for me at MasterCorp, I interviewed him, I hired him. I think about Ian a lot. He was such a kind, amicable sweet, polite young man. He always had kind of an expressionless look on his face but when he smiled, his entire face lit up.  Everyone loved him. 

The job at MasterCorp was extremely demanding from the amount of work to the meticulous quality required each day. One day he came into my office and said “I know you think I’m doing a bad job but I want you to know I can do better and I want you to be proud of me”. I was blown away.  I told him that we can all always do better and that I was proud of him but that I was mostly proud of him for coming to my office to have the conversation. 

Ian’s family was very important to him. I still have texts on my phone with him saying he had to drop his brother off at school or one time take the cat to the vet, frequently to help his dad with some things or his mom at the coffee shop. I can’t remember which holiday it was and EVERYONE works holidays in hospitality but he begged for it off so he could help his mom and work in the truck with her.

There is so much more I could say and this just does not do him justice.  Ian did not demand the spotlight like some of the younger people on the team, he let other people have it….but he had this quiet humility, humor and kindness and truly he was everyone’s favorite.  Such a special lovely soul, so thankful to have known you.

Ian had such a genuine, humble, loving, compassionate, loyal, and giving soul. A soul such as his is a rare treasure to encounter in this dark world. It drew you near and held you captivated. You just wanted to bask in his presence and share in his goodness.

I grieve not having the opportunity to create new memories with my nephew. A few that I will always treasure are the trips on my lap down the waterside at the Ritzville municipal pool as a child, a trip to the Wichita Zoo where Ian suffered heat exhaustion and had to bathe in the downspout from the water tower at Australia world, an epic failure during a professional level game of pickle ball at Chicken and Pickle with his brother in Wichita, multiple hikes in Colorado while sharing spits and breaks for funny photos, and a fun family game of Frisbee at the "guch" in Pagosa Springs. He brought fun, laughter, and acceptance to any event. This auntie was an epic failure at Frisbee, but Ian would try his darndest to throw the Frisbee straight at her so that she wouldn't have to run far to retrieve it. He cheered my attempts, and always made me feel like a winner. It was an extreme pleasure doing ANYTHING with Ian.

I believe that his soul lives on in every life that he touched. We carry a piece of him with us, and have an opportunity to continue his mission of love, laughter, compassion, and generosity to everyone that we encounter to leave a lasting legacy.  He will be cheering us on, and smiling down at us. Until we can be reunited again, sweet nephew, know that I will be carrying you with me in my heart forever, and that others will know you through me.

A letter for my Angel in Heaven

Shared by Andrea Weiszbrod on May 25, 2021
Dearest Baby Boy,
   
    I will always refer to you as my baby even though you were becoming an adult. Those of us moms agree that no matter how old their child gets they are always going to be their baby. I cherish the special milestones that you accomplished throughout your life; babyhood, childhood, Teenage years, graduating high school and just starting your adulthood. Time flew way too fast. I will always remember your selfless spirit, loving your friends and family was paramount. Skateboarding for hours and hours. You made us so proud!! You being a part of this family was an honor. Things weren’t always peachy but your friends and family loved and still love you. You also demonstrated unconditional love for everyone you met. You continue to shine your light and your spirit is a beacon for so many to follow. We decided to pay tribute and your middle name Riley is to honor a close friend of ours that had  similar beliefs and values that you also demonstrated. A gentle soul, free spirited, loving, easy-going, generous, selfless, compassionate.These characteristics are what made you an unique one-of-akind human being. Your legacy will live on in my heart and  the hearts of countless people that you touched forever. Nature is now your playground. Thank you for being the stone that was tossed in the water that made a “ripple” effect of love and generosity, for that I am truly honored that I can call you my son.  I am also so extremely glad you are free to express your true aura in heaven. Until we are reunited again I hope we can honor you for our friends, Loved ones, and strangers alike. Love you with all my heart and soul. ❤️Mom
