Iain Samuel Peare, 24, of Belton SC, passed away on Sunday April 10th, one week short of his 25th birthday, following a workplace violence incident. He was surrounded by his loved ones as he crossed the veil and lives on forever in our hearts.
Iain was the son of Andrew Roland Peare and Amy Elizabeth Van Syckel-Peare. He was brother to Josephine Margaret Peare. He is survived by the above, as well as his grandparents, Steven and Stephanie Van Syckel, and Glenna Peare. His grandfather, Robert Peare, predeceased him some years back. He is also survived by his great grandparents Herbert and Wanda Nelsen, his mother's partner Jeff Nelson, who cared very deeply for him, and many aunts and uncles and cousins who are feeling his loss.
One of the wonderful things about Iain's life was how marked by love he was. He was loved and loving, and this will never be forgotten. There is no greater deed than to be a loving, kind, and honorable person, and he was all those things.
He was a story teller and a wonderful artist, working often with graphite or ink.
He also enjoyed farming and was always finding new and wonderful plants to add to the fruit orchard he was growing. An animal lover, he was raising heritage breed geese, and nearly always had a cat or dog close by himself. He enjoyed walking in state and national parks and spending time in nature.
Iain was born in Maine and had planned to return. He will be interred in Tory Hill Cemetery in Buxton, Maine, in June.
If there is one thing Iain could teach the world, it was what love was. Iain was a man of integrity and honor and deep, deep love for his family and those in need. He knew how to express love to those around him, to show it in concrete ways. The world is a poorer place without him in it, but we will see him and love him again in our next lives.
The family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, please donate to the local animal shelter of your choice. He was especially fond of cats.
