15th August 1945 – 10th August 2018

Much loved dad of Matthew, Simon and Rebecca, grandfather to Liam, Ross and Erin, brother to Stuart, father-in-law, uncle and friend to many. Woodland burial at Greenacres Woodland Burial Ground. Ian was a prolific poet and had a poem for every occasion. Here is one of them:

WHEN THE TIME COMES

Remember me as I was
not as I will be
when the time comes
when my mind and body fail
and I become
someone not knowing who I am
don’t let me be shut away
but remember the day
when I flourished and laughed
and loved you
remember me sometimes
but don’t feel sad
I live on through you.
