It is with great sadness that we share the passing of a long time member of our club. He and Hildegard had recently relocated to North Carolina to be closer to their son and family. He was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of liver cancer shortly thereafter. Ian was an active member of the club, he loved his cars and sharing the driving experience with other enthusiasts. There is going to be a Celebration of Life on March 30th at Christ United Methodist Church.
