To Moira, Elaine, John and your respective families. It's so hard for us to write this condolence as we're all so shocked that Ian has gone. We were talking to him just a few days before he became ill, so this all seems so unreal. However, it goes without saying that we all have very fond memories of your Dad and of course your Mum. John especially can tell a hundred or more stories as his memories are still so vivid. We're both so glad that Michelle and more recently Jennifer got to meet Ian in Canada and enjoy his company and his 'dry' sense of humour. We still can't believe that he got Michelle to eat a bacon sandwich! Not easy for a vegetarian! Such was his charm, she ate it graciously, and actually enjoyed it. Both he and your Mum have left a huge void for you all and for us too, so strange not to be able to lift the phone and chat to either of them just when you want to. John misses that very much. To you all, we hope that you look after each other and share your many happy memories in the weeks and months ahead. Our thoughts, as always are with you all and we hope it's not too long before we meet again. Take care.

A great guy, always with a smile & chuckle. We will miss him. Our condolences & sympathy. From Don Otto (Sr. Men's Golf Tuesday mornings)

— Don Otto, November 25, 2010

It was only about 3 weeks ago that we were talking to Ian over the fence between our backyards. We were telling Ian that Larry was getting ready to go golfing in Myrtle Beach like he always does every year. I have enjoyed golfing with Ian on Men's night at Pike Lake or any other day that he could make it. We will miss hearing Ian's Scottish Broge, and his laughter will be missed by, Maggie & Larry Scammell

I'm so sorry to hear about your Father. He was a true gentleman, and will be missed by many. I'll never forget his smiling face often before he headed out to golf, always smiling and always had time to talk to you. I will miss him very much. Our sincerest condolences.
