    I am so saddened by Ian’s passing. We worked together for many years throughout Pictou County when times were toughest and in reflection, had a great time doing it. Ian was one of the best carpenters I ever had the pleasure to work with. He was very talented. He did some of the most fine finish cabinet work at the Museum of Industry in Stellarton Nova Scotia. We had fun on that one for sure. I will miss him and will never forget him. Rest In Peace my Brother.
