Ian William Ladd

December 16, 1991December 1, 2020

OAKLAND – It is with great sadness that we announce the Dec. 1, 2020 passing of Ian William Ladd. Ian was born in Waterville, Maine on December 16, 1991, to parents Jonathan and Catherine (Kivlin) Ladd.

Ian always had such appreciation and love for animals and the outdoors. Even as a young boy, Ian would collect all the insects he could find in the yard. He did this so often that his mother started calling him the family entomologist. Later in his adolescence Ian would find solace in playing video games, collecting as many consoles as he could throughout the years. Ian was known for making others laugh. He loved producing parodies for his family and friends to enjoy. His friends and family will miss his wit and unique sense of humor.

Ian is predeceased by his father Jonathan Ladd and his brother-in-law Gary Lee.

Ian is survived by his mother, Catherine Ladd; his sisters, Erin (Ladd) Lee and Caitlin Ladd; his nieces Abby Lee, Katie Lee, Catarina Hellman, and Isabella Hellman; his girlfriend Andi Hatake; his friend since childhood, Joey Laliberte; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Visitation will be held at Fairfield United Methodist Church, 37 Skowhegan Rd, Fairfield, ME 04937, on December 16, 2020 from 4:00PM – 7:00PM. Masks and social distancing are required as you pay your respects. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Veilleux and Redington Funeral Home. Condolences and memories can be shared by visiting Ian’s guestbook at

Our hearts were broken when we read of this loss. The world will miss Ian! I remember with fondness our times together with Ian, Catherine, Erin and Caitlin at Camp Ray of Hope and other times with Jim Fletcher and Ian and often Caitlin on activity trips and on visits here at my home. Ian's love of bugs and all animals was often the center of our conversation along with his hopes and dreams for the future. Jim was most certainly waiting to greet him at the bridge to a new life and will be his mentor and guide there as he was at one time here. Love and condolences to Mom, sisters and girlfriend - all his family.

My condolences to you and your family on the passing of Ian. I worked with him for a short period of time at FedEx and he seemed to always brighten the shop when he arrived. He was an asset to us and will be dearly missed. Thoughts and prayers in this time of mourning.
