Ian Armstrong Shepherd

April 29, 1995 ~ July 23, 2023 (age 28) 28 Years Old


     On Sunday July 23, 2023 Ian Shepherd of Scottsdale, AZ passed away at the age of 28. Ian will be lovingly missed by his mother Sarah, his father, Ted, his brother, Drew and his grandmother Phyllis Shepherd.

     Ian was born on April 29, 1995. He spent a good portion of his early years with his many friends. Skateboarding and video gaming were his early passions. As Ian grew older, his attention turned to music, to art, to food, and to computers. He played guitar and listened to music all day long. He painted big, beautiful and bold paintings one after the other. His love for food led to dining out, traveling in the U.S. and abroad and cooking for his family and friends. Ian built and fixed computers and wrote code in great volumes. He loved to read.

     Ian loved his summers in Door County Wisconsin (Idlewild). He and his close friends and his family water skied during the day, played cards in the evening and sat at the end of the dock late into the night talking and laughing about all that life had to offer. Ian felt most at peace when he was Door County.

     After graduation from Hinsdale Central in 2013, Ian moved to Wisconsin, then to Oregon and then to Colorado where he attended Colorado State University (CSU). Ian graduated from CSU in 2020 with a B.S. in Computer Science, earning high honors all four years. Ian then moved to Scottsdale, AZ to begin his career as a Software Engineer in the IT industry.

     Ian was a loving son and brother and a great friend to so many. He was kind, generous and sensitive. Ian will be remembered for his intellect, his quick wit and his playful spirit. Ian will be missed.

     A celebration of life will take place Tuesday August 15, 2023 between 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at Ruth Lake Country Club 6200 S Madison St., Hinsdale, IL.

     A service and interment will be August 16, 2023 at 3:30 PM at the Hainesville Cemetery, 7124 Hainesville Road, Sturgeon Bay, WI.
