It is with great sadness that the family of Dennis "Ian" Blinn, 49, of Pine Grove, announces his passing on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at the South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater. Born in Halifax, Ian was the son of Edgar and Thelma (Kenney) Blinn of Linenburg. Ian received his earlier education at the Lunenburg High School and then went on to take a computer program in Halifax. His working career started at Composite Atlantic, Lunenburg, and then he worked with his father at Nelson Consulting Company. Ian then decided to go into trucking and worked long haul, then short haul trucking for various companies in the South Shore and for the last seven years with Armour Transportation Systems. Ian found great pleasure in the simple pleasures of life, spending time at home with family and friends, enjoying his Xbox, watching a good car race, daily side trips with Terilee and cherished moments with his dogs, Jake and Maggie. Besides his parents, Edgar and Thelma Blinn of Lunenburg, Ian is survived by his loving wife, Terilee (Munroe); sister Pamela Moore, Bedford; brother Fred (Mandy) Ryan, Halifax; and James (Shelley), Halifax; and several nieces and nephews and cousins. A service to celebrate Ian's life was held on Saturday, March 2, at 2 p.m. at the Dana L Sweeny Funeral Home, Lunenburg, Rev. Grace Caines-Corkum officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Rose Fund (The Rosanne Himmelman Cancer Patient Fund), which raises funds to help ease the pain for the residents of our local communities who are struggling financially while being treated for cancer, or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia.
