Our Staff at Arbutus Funeral Service

Ian Elliott - Licensed Funeral Director & OwnerIan Elliott

Ian  grew  up  in Virden, Manitoba,  a  community  of approx. 3500  people. Growing  up  in  this farming community instilled in Ian the principle of caring, looking out for your neighbour and always offering a helping hand.  ​Ian began his career in funeral service in Moosomin, Saskatchewan. After a few years he moved to Regina where he met his wife Greta. Ian has spent the last 25 years serving families in Lower Mainland. His calming approach in serving families places them at ease and his sensitivity in serving them  is appreciated.  He is a past board  member of the BC Funeral Service Association, having  served  7 years.  He is active in Rotary,  his faith community and readily volunteers as needed.
