Tribute & Message From The Family


LAHIKAINEN, Ian Alexander
February 29, 2020. Age 33. Loving son of John and Mary Lahikainen. Dear nephew of Ruth Manz, Beth Manz, Margaret (Dan) Casey, and Susie Woodman. Dearest grandson of Katherine Manz. How to convey who Ian was. He was a beautiful smile composed of joy, humor, love, wit, and intelligence that made all of us feel those same things in a glance. He was kindness and thoughtfulness. He was wrapped in the unending love of his mother, Mary and father, John, his aunts Ruth, Beth and Margaret, his uncle Dan, and his grandmother Kathy "Granny" – from the moment he came into this world and on all of the days of his life. He enjoyed simple things like home, family and family gatherings, his pets, friends, conversation, laughter, cooking, music, playing the guitar, television, movies, books of all kinds, video games, fishing, and a good craft beer. Simple things. He was love, joy and meaning. How do we fill a gaping hole left by his absence? Impossible. We can only hold onto Ian's smile and all that it encompassed – love, happiness, meaning – all things he gave to us every day of his life.Donations in Ian's memory are preferred to the Michigan Humane Society: 30300 Telegraph Road Suite 220, Bingham Farms, MI 48025-4507 or to the American Brain Tumor Association: 8550 W.
