It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Ian Carl Schierbeck.  Dad died peacefully with family by his side on November 16, 2019 after his short battle with cancer.  Dad was predeceased by both his parents, John and Elizabeth and by his wife Donna.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
The Family would like to send out a big thank you to Dr. Mike Skubiak, the community care nurses and care aides, along with the Bastion Care facility staff.  We appreciate all the care and compassion you provided during our Dads time of need.
An Open House will be held at Fischer’s Funeral Home on Tuesday November 26 from 1- 4PM. 
An open mic will be available, and the family would be grateful to anyone who would like to say some words or share some stories.
Dad was a big supporter of The Salvation Army and The Second Harvest Food Bank in Salmon Arm.  In lieu of flowers, donations to those causes would be greatly appreciated.


  1. Ian will be missed by so many… we worked together for many years at the Union office.. he was a good & kind friend… we kept in touch over the years & I will always remember his many kind gestures… my deepest sympathy to all the family…

  2. My deepest sympathies to Ian’s family.

    Ian was a valued friend of my late husband Gary and mine. Salmon Arm has lost a man of integrity, generosity, ingenuity, conviction and kindness. May we mourn him well and honour his memory by working together tirelessly to uphold these same values in our homes and communities.

    Thank you Ian for your smile, laughter and example. We will miss you.

  3. RIP my friend — you were a real ‘mench’!

  4. Ian was such an intelligent and capable man with a sense of humour. I met Ian in 2015 and at first we locked horns but the after a while we grew on each other. I admired Ian’s ability to take take charge of a room, his ability to remain calm whilst others around him was frantic and his dedication to the NDP and our community.

    Ian invited us to raid his cherry tree and enjoy his raspberries and grapes and it was greatly appreciated. I am happy he is no longer suffering and hope that family is comforted by warm memories.
