Ian Duff

Ian Duff, aged 69, passed away suddenly and peacefully at his residence on Friday, October 23rd, 2023. Ian is survived by his devoted wife of 44 years, Marina, his daughter Jenna (Cory), his son Graeme (Gillian), his sister Susan Baluk, and his beloved grandpuppy Lucy. Ian’s parents Gordon and Laura Duff, father-in-law Henry Michalski, and special cousin Lynn ‘Duffy’ Duff preceded him in death.

Born on March 23, 1954, in Yorkton, Ian was raised on the family farm in Beaver Dale, SK. He attended Silver Willow School until its closure, after which he was transported to Yorkton Composite and later Yorkton Regional High School. In May 1979, Ian and Marina exchanged vows, and their joy knew no bounds with the arrival of their daughter Jenna Marie and son Graeme Ian.

From a young age, Ian developed a passion for baseball, concluding his playing career with the Willowbrook senior men’s team. He continued to nurture his love for the sport by coaching his son’s teams and dedicating his time to volunteering within the Regina and Saskatoon parks and leagues. Music and reading were two other cherished interests of Ian’s, and he passed on these passions to his daughter, attending her band concerts and recitals with great enthusiasm.

While Ian embarked on his professional journey in Yorkton, where he established his own business specializing in floor covering sales and installation, his family always remained his top priority. Sunday brunches, dinners, and game nights were regular occurrences in the Duff household, filled with laughter and delectable food. All were welcome in their warm and inviting home.
