Tuschl; his paternal grandfather: Jerome Tuschl; maternal grandparents: Harvey and Evelyn Moffatt Sr.; uncle: Jeffrey Tuschl; aunt and uncle: Leon and Lillian Moffatt; and other relatives and friends.
Ian’s friend Kurt Evenson’s family worded it best: Ian struggled for many years with substance abuse and depression. These struggles in no way defined who he was as a person, nor prevented him from being a great human being and loving others. Ian’s family encourages others experiencing these problems to not be ashamed and to seek help. You are not alone in your struggles, and there is help available.
Funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 at Christianson and Deja Funeral Home, 202 S. Liberty Street, Valders. Mark Herrmann will officiate the service.
The family will greet relatives and friends on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. until 2:45 p.m. at the Christianson and Deja Funeral Home, Valders.
