I had the privilege of sitting next to Ian for 3 years at McKean. We spent the majority of our time in class laughing and ribbing. He was truly a kind man and I am deeply saddened by his passing. He was a very talented and intelligent person. Your family is in my prayers and may you find comfort in that he is in God's hands

Ian will be missed very greatly. I had so much fun getting to know him as a friend and as an artist in choral. He had such a great spirit about him that will be very missed.
