Ian McCrum, 33, of Danbury, CT died suddenly on Thursday June 3rd 2021. He was the only child of Maureen McCrum and the late Mark McCrum.
Ian grew up and attended schools in Ossining, NY, and graduated from Briarcliff High School, Class of 2006. Ian was very outgoing and funny and was voted class clown his senior year. He enjoyed giving speeches and never felt intimidated in front of a microphone, and always brought a smile to people's faces.
He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, majoring in Psychology and graduated in 2010. Given Ian's innate intelligence and optimistic personality, he was a natural for helping adolescent patients at Four Winds Hospital where he worked for 10 years. To further his profession, he was seriously considering a career as a psychiatric nurse and had passed all the prerequisite courses with flying colors.
Just being in Ian's presence made everyone feel better. He had a delightful sense of humor and loved laughing and being with his many friends. His interests included sports -- the Yankees, Knicks and Jets were among his favorite teams. He also enjoyed video games, cruising the Caribbean with his parents, playing golf and was especially gifted at the card game Texas Hold-Em. He even won a free cruise for two in a major onboard tournament.
Watching good movies and reading the classics were other pastimes he enjoyed. Ian had a creative mind and wrote stories and poetry with dreams of someday becoming a published writer. But more than anything else, he loved being with his family and friends and enjoying the fun things that life has to offer.
A bereavement luncheon will be held in his honor on Sunday, June 27th by invitation only.
