I have known Ian for as long as I can remember. He was my best friends husband and quickly became my other best friend. I have wonderful memories of the time we three friends spent together. He was a wonderful husband to Alice, a great dad to his three boys and an amazing friend to all that had the privilege of calling him friend. He will leave a hole in the hearts of all who loved him. I’m sure Mark is touring him around heaven as I write this. Cheers my friend

Doris Quinn

I was looking for the obituary of a friend who passed and saw Ian’s face first. I worked as a nurse at the blood donor clinic for 30 years. Ian became almost like family with his regular, kind and friendly presence for his multiple blood donations. A very fine man whom I know will be deeply, deeply missed. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
