Sadly, in the early morning of December 3, 2020, with his life-long companion, Kaye, by his side in their home, Ian succumbed to his courageous and hard-fought battle with ALS.
Ian was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. He often teased that he spent his childhood in mental hospitals in Scotland and England that was before his psychiatrist father accepted a position with the mental health hospital in North Battleford, Sask. Then the family moved to Sudbury, On. on to New Westminster, BC, then to Las Vegas, New Mexico and then to New York State.
