Our Creator called home Philip William Iron Shirt/Red Young Man on Thursday, January 3, 2019, at the age of 44 years old. He was surrounded by his loving family at the Calgary South Health Campus. William will be sadly missed by his children and step children: Farrah, Lauren, Brittany, Shalee, Brighton, Cameron, Frank, Brooklyn, William Jr. and Gracey. William was survived by his best friend Carmen/Tammy Crazy Bull, his parents Philip and Myrna Red Young Man, his siblings Alden Iron Shirt (Ellen), Doug Iron Shirt (Laura), Darren Iron Shirt, Arnetta Iron Shirt (Tom), Martin Iron Shirt (Teddi) and his baby sister Melissa Smith as well as his step siblings Alfred Iron Shirt, Stephanie Iron Shirt (Wade) and Melodie Iron Shirt.

William was born in Pincher Creek on May 3, 1974 and spent his childhood on the Piikani Nation and lived in Calgary, AB most of his adult life. William went to school in Brocket and Pincher Creek, Alberta, and furthered his education at the Job Corps in Trapper Creek, Montana. He worked numerous jobs but spent most of his career working as a construction worker. He was also a firefighter for the Piikani Nation. William was also known to be a very talented artist, creating numerous First Nation's arts and crafts.

William loved spending time with his family and his children. He enjoyed spending his free time with his father Philip and his brother Darren, going fishing, hunting and being outdoors. He also enjoyed attending Pow Wows and attending church for his spiritual connection our Lord and Creator. William was a very kind, generous, and giving individual. He was always giving gifts to his family when he seen them, even if he had nothing, he would do his best to give a gift to show his love for you even if it was a sampling from Kernels Popcorn from Marlborough Mall. His generosity will surely be missed.

William was a very proud uncle to numerous nieces and nephews. He will also be sadly missed by his aunties, uncles and cousins, too numerous to mention, especially his sister Arnetta Iron Shirt, whom William always called, confided in, and was her protector. Williams was predeceased by his loving mother Valerie May Iron Shirt (September 16, 1981), his nephew Trent Yellow Wings, his grandparents Harold and Louise Red Young Man, Fred & Clara Iron Shirt, his brother Aloysious/AJ Bull Plume and his step brother Leon Iron Shirt. William was also greeted in heaven by his huge extended family that left before him to prepare for his arrival.

The family would like to thank the staff of Alpha House, the ICU Unit at the Calgary South Health Campus and Piikani Prevention Counselling Services for their extensive support. The family would also like to thank Dr. Roze and her team for their kindness, caring, and supportiveness throughout our difficult time.
