Ian’s warm and magnetic personality drew people to him effortlessly. He had a gift for making friends and his infectious laughter and beautiful smile brought smiles to all who knew him. His quick wit and sense of humor could always light up a room. But beyond his happy nature, Ian possessed a tender heart and a remarkable capacity for caring for others.
