Dear Ian,

A bit late to make a tribute but better late than never. Will never forget my introduction to canyoning via your good self,  Jim,  Joy, Dave, Wendy, Lyn and many others. Your passion for this sport was catchy. Every time I couldn't believe 'I'm going to do what!!' and abseil off 'that blooming very very high cliff' you were there to egg me on and show that even 'scaredy cats' can do amazing and wild things. To this day, I enjoy tramping but nothing beat tramping on a canyon trip with the Knappsters.

Thank you for encouraging me to be brave, play it safe, not stand for any bollocks and showing me that you are never too old to be adventurous.

You were a very clever man, hospitable, always one with a cheeky 'naughty' joke, amazing friend and family man. You are missed. So glad you were in our lives even if for some of us, it was a short while.

Love Rebecca

Ian will always be remembered for his selfless efforts in teaching me and others numerous safety techniques whilst canyoning and abseiling.

Everything Ian did over the years I knew him, he did for the benefit of others.  My life is all the better for having known Ian personally, and for having the honour to be able to call him a very good friend of mine.  Those are the lasting memories which will forever stay with me.
