McCallum, Ivan Charles – Age 65, Onslow Mountain, received his wings on January 22, 2016, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Truro, he was a son of the late Charles and Pansy (Ettinger) McCallum. Ivan was an avid outdoorsman who was happiest camping, four-wheeling, and some of his best memories were made on an old dirt road with a drink in his hand. Family meant everything to him, and he was proud to be a father and grandfather, and was very appreciative of the support provided by his wife.
Ivan’s memories will be cherished by his wife, Frances; son, Jason; daughter, Charlene “Sweetems” (Mike) Alchorn; grandson, Brendon; sisters, Vangie (Bob), Bowie, Geri, Violet (Bill), Diane (Richard), Bonnie, Pinkie (Bob); brother, Butch; sister-in-law, Starlene (Al); his four-legged companion, Buddy.
Visitation will be Wednesday from 7-9 p.m., in Colchester Community Funeral Home, Truro. Memorial donations may be made to Colchester East Hants Hospice Society.
Thank you to the Palliative Care staff and Dr. Masoumi for the excellent care given to Ivan and the family.
