Surrounded by his loving family on October 7, 2014, we lost a brave and beautiful soul, Ian William McArthur at the age of 29. He is survived by his beloved wife and soul mate Rita (nee Sogor). Cherished son of Mark and Delcy McArthur. Loving brother of Karin, Ross, Meredith and Heather and special family friend Ann Wilson. Grandson of Audrey McArthur and the late Charles McArthur Sr., Violet and the late Vojislav Sarcevich. Much loved son in law of Elizabeth and the late Mike Sogor. Brother in law of Elizabeth and Domenic Mammarella and doting uncle of Ava and Michael Mammarella. He will be missed by his many aunts and uncles, Nancy and Peter Jansen, the late Ron Sarcevich, Charles and Denise McArthur, Cheryl and James Wall, Lorry McArthur, Susan and Wally Dowhayko, Deb and Jim Holek, Michael and Linda Dulmage, Jill and Rob Buckles, Beth and Jeff Hebert, and Greg and Renata Dulmage. He was the fearless leader of his many cousins (CBFL). Not to be forgotten by his special “vest” buddy Mikey the cat.
Ian graduated from the University of Windsor and was employed by the City of Windsor – Gino A. Marcus Community Centre, which he regarded as his second home. Ian will be remembered for his sense of humour, infectious laugh, beautiful smile and genuine kind nature. Ian will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
