Ian ‘Onion’ Van Es

November 8, 2018
Onion “rode on” to his next adventure on November 8, 2018 after a long battle with Cancer. He left us far too young at the age of 57.

Onion spent his career operating Logging and heavy duty equipment. He enjoyed a good party had a love for riding his Harley and hot rods.

He is survived by his love Marlene; daughter Nicole; FVO Shelly (Scott) Father Joe (Trudy) Sister Florette (Brad) Brother Mike (Carey) many nieces and nephews as well as several other family.

“Family is not whose blood is in your veins it is who you loved and who loved you”.

A celebration of life will be held at Eagles Hall, Campbell River on January 26, 2019 between 1 – 4 pm. In lieu of flowers donations to the Victoria Hospice Society in memory of Onion are appreciated.
