Ian D. Startup
STARTUP, Ian Day. It is with great sadness that the family of Ian Day
Startup announces his sudden passing in a fatal car accident on
Tuesday, December 19, 2017, at the age of 69 years. Ian will be
lovingly remembered by his wife of 13 years, Jaki Connaughton, his
children Sandra (Gabriel) Ghali and Molly (Stuart Reed) Kleiker, his
two grandchildren Sarah and Willow, his brothers Eric, Mark and Scott,
sisters-in-law Julie and Harmien, his aunts Pat Ballantyne and Marie
(Murray) Laufer, as well as many other family members and friends. Ian
was predeceased by his previous wife Margo Kleiker and parents Ivan
and Shirley Startup. The eldest son of four, Ian was born in Toronto
and lived there for the first 10 years of his life. His family moved
to Calgary in 1958 and Brantford in 1964, where he graduated high
school at the Brantford Collegiate Institute. Ian then attended
Lakehead University, where he trained as a civil engineer. He moved to
Nova Scotia in 1972. In Ian’s professional life, he evolved
from jewelry maker working in silver, gold, and precious stones, to a
home-builder and developer specializing in energy efficient housing,
and worked with the federal government as an educator and trainer in
energy efficient building. Then at midlife he was smitten by his love
of marble in Italy, and became active in sculpting for the rest of his
life. He was able to travel and work on sculptures in Italy, Spain,
Holland, Greece, Nepal, Vietnam, and the Canadian Artic, and was
looking forward to an artist residency in Cuba with the University of
Havana. He described feeling so inspired by the endlessly changing
interaction between the sea and the shore, the sky and the horizon of
the Nova Scotian landscapes. His endless creativity, inspiration, love
of good music and food will stay with always. The memorial service
will be held Wednesday, December 27, 2017, at 11 am at St. James
Anglican Parish Hall, 12 Parish St., Mahone Bay, NS. Because of
Ian’s great love of sharing food with friends and family, in
lieu of flowers, donations can be made to local food banks and Feed
Nova Scotia, or the Marpa Foundation (a monastery for young nuns in
Nepal) www.ktgrinpoche.org/marpa-network. Cremation entrusted
