Our family mourns as we announce the passing of our beautiful boy, Ian Steven-James Pomeroy, on Tuesday, July 10, 2018. Ian battled courageously against an unrelenting cancer for nearly a year, and even though doctors couldn’t make him better, God did. He entered the world on May 25, 2012 in Saginaw, the son of Steven and Embery (Skinner) Pomeroy. Ian was a spirited kindergartener, wise beyond his years, who could make friends with anyone. He was an avid MSU fan and refused to sit in any chair with a U of M emblem on it, even while receiving treatment in Ann Arbor. He was happiest when surrounded by babies and was excited to welcome a little brother, expected soon, that he was able to name. Ian spent countless hours outdoors, and enjoyed riding anything with a motor, especially jet skis, dirt bikes and snowmobiles. An energetic blond hair boy, he was known for having fun in the sun, fishing, jogging, and running from the girls who loved to chase him. He could also be found playing games, watching YouTube, and was known as the “Bottle-Flip Champion” of the family. Although his years here were short, he leaves a legacy of bringing people together, and facing even the most unbearable challenges with love and courage.
Left to cherish Ian’s memory are his loving parents, Steven and Embery Pomeroy; siblings: Crystal (James) Mahan, Brandy (Pat) Henderson, KJ Mahan (Joanna Hardwood), Michael Pomeroy (Brittney Tallman), Brendan Pomeroy (Skye Donovan), Summer Mahan (Shane Marner), Kaitlyn Arebalo, Kolten Mahan, Jayden Mahan, and expected soon, Ryder William Pomeroy; grandparents, William and Laura Pomeroy, Alvina Skinner (Larry Giddings); aunts and uncles: Willam Pomeroy, Jr., Barb Goodman, Victoria Pomeroy, Chuck Skinner, Sheila Savage and Ruthann Skinner; great-aunt and “uncle-uncle,” Jim and Cathy Skinner; nieces and nephews: Ariel, Austin, Riley, Brooklynn, James, Carsen, Ava, Gracie, Bella, Isiak, Kenslee, Annabell, and expected soon, Gemma and Hailo; and many cousins. Ian was greeted in Heaven by his uncle, Michael Pomeroy; maternal grandfather, Charles Skinner; and uncle Frenchy.
