I enjoyed many years of Ian's wonderful music at Trinity Lutheran Church. He was a great asset to our church.

Ian's hearty laugh always served as a source of support when I was conducting either Schola Cantorum of Syracuse or the choir of St. David's. He conveyed a positive sense of joy and comradeship in music-making. If there is a heavenly choir, he will surely be a most welcome new member.

I am so sorry to learn of Ian's passing. I was a student at West Genesee and then worked one summer with Ian at Merchants Bank. He was kind, talented with a wonderful sense of humor. I always enjoyed our conversations. May God bless Ian. All of you will be in our prayers.
