to the memorial page of
Ian and his wife to be, Kaye at the Kelmscot home of Ian's parents, Stella and Ted. This was always a place for family members to meet on most special occasions and any party was brought to life by Ian's sense of humour.
Ian was often here helping with things around the house. If ever there was anything that needed some attention, Ian was always there without a word of complaint.
The Harley that Ian loved. Ian had a long history of motorcycles, the first of the line was a Honda 750 Four in the year that it came out. From there he had a number of bikes with the Harley being the last in the line. The first ride he had on the Harley was with his friend and I through the twisting back streets of the infamous "Nedlands Run", a series of streets that followed the bank of the Swan River through the Perth suburbs of Nedlands and Dalkeith. It was an interesting ride to sort out the bugs of a new bike but he never forgot that ride. At least he never let me forget it (ouch).
Parting words from Ian's
from Ian's mother...
It was March, 1952. I was pregnant and taken to hospital, my
baby was born dead. I was sick, so very sick for weeks, then the Doctor told us that
medically nothing more could be done for me, there was only one thing that would get me
back on my feet - get pregnant again, so I did and in March 1953 my darling Ian was born.
God took your hand and made us part,
