Words cannot express my shock and sadness . Ian was such a great friend when were went through Cub/Scouts/Venturers together. I will remember fondly our many exploits and camping trips and the endless long hours of carrying-on and laughing together. Ian always made those times better and was a pleasure to be around. My deepest sympathies to Kathy, Mrs. Kerr, Brian, Andy, and the extended family.
