Obituary for Ian McClenaghan

Born: Saintfield, Ireland
Lived: Shelton

Ian McClenaghan, age 60, of Shelton, entered into rest unexpectedly on Thursday, June 14, 2018. He was the loving and devoted husband of 22 years to Ruth Licari-McClenaghan. Ian was born in Saintfield, Ireland, on October 3, 1957, son of the late Reginald and Matilda (Armstrong) McClenaghan. Ian traveled and explored the world through work as a geologist with Schlumberger Corporation. After retiring, Ian came to settle in Shelton along with his wife Ruthie. They were the former owner of Gifts by the Green in the Huntington Plaza in Shelton. After closing the business, Ian opened LabTechUsa. Ian loved watches, history, soccer (especially Manchester City), spending time outdoors in his yard, and caring for his home. Most of all, his passion was being a loving father to his daughter Dione. Ian predeceased the “apple of his eye - the love of his life,” his daughter Dione McClenaghan, his loving and supportive wife Ruthie, and his sisters, Yvonne Machugh and Valerie McClenaghan, both of Ireland.

“Close to our hearts you will always stay, loved and remembered everyday.”

The family would like to invite everyone to their home at 78 Perry Hill Road, Shelton on Saturday at 2pm to share in the celebration of Ian McClenaghan’s life.
