Sadly, Ian passed away today. He was surrounded by his family and was very peaceful.
He adored his family, friends and co-workers - and his fabulous
fans over the past 50+ years. He was so grateful for the many well
wishes he received from so many.
He is survived by his wife of 44 years Jan, children Michelle, Sacha and Joshua and his 3 grandchildren.
He had a great life x
