He will be deeply missed by his parents; Sonja and Erick Lancaster (Mama and Papa Bear), and Jerilynn Cornish and Laura Henderson of Toronto, an amazing brother; Sammy, grandparents; Samuel and Kathy Gill of Richmond, Gerald R.

Ian was born on November 15, 2002 and even though his time here may have been short, he taught those around him to appreciate life’s little gifts; new boxes of crayons, handy dandy notebooks, bubbles, Power Puff Girls, balloons, and lots of mac and cheese. He knew that the most important thing in life is the people we love and who love us. 

His life will be celebrated at a memorial service which will be held at Everhart-Bove Funeral Home, 110 W. Main St., Richmond on October 5, 2018 from 4 PM until time of funeral services at 6 PM with Pastor Georgette Gaston. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital. 

Ian’s parents would like to express their deep appreciation for all of the prayers and support given to them during this difficult time by their family, friends, and their community. A special thank you to Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital staff and doctors and to Valley Hospice for the kind and compassionate care they have shown to Ian. Memorial contributions can be made to
