Ian Alexander Galbraith-McTavish
June 15, 1991 – January 27, 2018

It is with great sadness that the family of Able Seaman Ian Galbraith-McTavish announce his passing on 27 January, 2018 in Victoria, B.C.

Ian enrolled in the Canadian Armed Forces in 2013 as an Artillery Soldier and transferred to the Royal Canadian Navy as a Boatswain in 2017. He previously served at CFB Gagetown prior to CFB Esquimalt. A dedicated Boatswain who loved mountain climbing and being outdoors, Ian could always be counted on to help out his shipmates with kindness and understanding.

Ian will be lovingly remembered by his parents Heather Galbraith and her husband Chuck Uhl, by his father William McTavish,  his siblings Chris and his wife Reese, John, Brian, and Billie McTavish, step-brothers Jacob and Jason Uhl, his nephews Colby and Rylan, and his nieces Layla and Charlie, as well as family and friends across Canada.

A military service will be held at Sands Funeral Chapel, 317 Goldstream Avenue, Colwood at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, 7 February, 2018 with a visitation scheduled for Tuesday, 6 February between 6-8 p.m.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Our Place Society, Victoria B.C., www.ourplacesociety.com.
