What a legend! A true entertainer, who loved the entertainment stage and the entertainment of his children and friends. Be it me and dean haggling over a Deano bravo sticker to complete our wwf sticker book, or terrorising Lisa and Michelle round butlins Minehead shouting “chicken!”
He only Intervened when needed, trusted us as children to make the right choices, I see the same morals in Lisa and Dean, passed on through Ollie his legacy will always live on by the foundations he laid.
A very sad day, but there is a brighter star in the sky tonight, that we should all aspire to be.
Xxxx

Ian was a smashing chap. Have seen him play in the 70's and 80's.
Always had a smile on his face.

  • Deepest sympathy to you Lisa , Dean , Elaine and all Ian's family. He was indeed a devoted Father and a special man. He will be deeply missed by you all. His sense of humour lives on through you and Dean and I hope that continues to make you laugh through the years. Love always.

  • Yet another good friend, lost forever, not his memory, that will remain with me long after his departure (I hope) Gone to join that great band of departed musicians in the beyond. RIP Ian.
