SOUTH GLENS FALLS- Ian Scott Moreau 22, of South Glens Falls, went to be with his grandparents and Godmother in Heaven on Thursday, January 22, 2015. He was accompanied by his partner in crime/bodyguard, Jeremy D. Otruba.
Born on November 21, 1992, in Glens Falls, he was the son of Scott Moreau of Glens Falls, and Mary Beth (Yole) Moreau of South Glens Falls.
Ian was a 2011 graduate of South Glens Falls High School and Southern Adirondack Education Center. He was self-employed as the owner/operator of ISM Trucking, his business employed one employee CEO, Kasey L. Carota.
He was a communicant of St. Mary’s/St. Paul’s Church in Hudson Falls and St. Joseph’s Church in Fort Edward. Ian enjoyed hunting, fishing, and stunt riding with the Section 518 team. He had a love for any and all outdoor activities.
Ian was predeceased by his grandparents, Oliver and Doris Moreau, and Thomas R. and Patricia W. Yole.
From a very young age it was clear that Ian would be an adventurous individual whom of which would be unstoppable. His work ethic was unparalleled by his peers. His generosity and loyalty for the people in his life was something to be admired, Ian was wise beyond his years. He showed unconditional love and protection to the important women in his life. A standup guy who would go out of his way for anyone. A humble soul who would hold a door, lend a hand, and protect any good ole boy in need.
His witty one liners could always bring such hearty laughs. “Ya bud”, “Hang to ‘er pard”, “We dem boys”, “Send it!”. He is the definition of the song “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd. You would always see him in his work boots and Carhartt’s. But then again when he dressed up and cleaned up, he did it well and was as handsome and clean cut as ever. Because of this we ask that in memory of Ian, the dress code of the calling hours is work attire, jeans, and work boots. We ask that you save your best dressed apparel for the funeral.
Survivors include his father; Scott C. Moreau and spouse Jo-Ann Palmieri; and his mother Mary Beth Yole Moreau and her fiancée, William E McCullen, Sr.; sister, Lauren E. Moreau and her boyfriend Jeremy Mula; brothers, Ryan Patrick Johnson, Harley R. Mackenzie, and Sean Thomas Johnson. His brothers in arms; Matthew Motian, Michael Beshara, and Nicholas LaPoint. Ian is also survived by the absolute love of his life, and someday future wife; Kasey L. Carota and his family to be, Timothy and Kimm Carota, and Taylor Carota.
