I was very saddened to receive news of Ian's passing. We were friends from grammar school, the Byford School playground and throughout high school. We played baseball together on the AHS baseball team. He and Eileen were friends along with several other young couples but somehow drifted apart. I had not been in contact with him for many years. He was a good friend who would always have your back when in a spot.

My sympathy goes out to Eileen and his family. Rest in peace my old friend.

So sorry to hear about Ian's passing. Remembering how nice he was and always had a great smile. Eileen, please accept our condolences. So sorry that we lost track of you both over the last forty plus years.

My journey and friendship with Ian started in Kindergarten in 1953 and lasted through the late 1970's when we lost touch.  We played every sport together on the Byford Playground, Park 9, LaFollette Park, Columbus Park and bowling at the Austin Bowl and Del Mar Bowl on Chicago Avenue.  There was never a game he would not try and most he was great at!!!  During our early teen years we played "Strike Out" on the Byford Playground.  One day I pitched him a golf ball, never thinking he could hit it, boy was I wrong, he swung and hit it across Parkside Avenue and through "Mr. Leo's" front window...  We ran...  

Ian had the first car and we drove around Chicago looking for things to do, we always went to the Austin Activity Nights, Weber High School Sock Hops and anywhere we could find a fun time.  Our group consisted of Bill Trow (AHS, 65), Alan Coats (Lane, 65) and me (AHS, Jan. 66).  

Ian was stricken with heart disease and later Alzheimer's and passed during the Covid-19 Pandemic.  Eileen and Ian were married over 50 years, had two sons and five grandchildren.  I am so saddened to hear of his passing and wish my sympathy to Eileen and family.  He was a great friend and I am praying that he may rest in peace!!!

I read Ian's and Tom Butcher's memorial with deep saddness but great rememberances of all the great times in and out of class.   Ian of course was fine friend to many, fine athlete in the Austin tradition - but to me,  his great trait was such a fine sense of humor and friendly joking ( in and out of class, especially IN class).  My deep sympathy to Eileen, who after the years will have to read my profile to remember me.   George Andros  1965
