With deep regret we advise that Ian passed away peacefully at his Gletwyn homestead on 24th December 2012 after a long and brave battle with cancer.

Ian was a long standing member of the Zimbabwe Hunters’ Association and a dedicated, hands-on Chairman for many years and Committee Member.  He was also one of the initial founder members of the Rifa Conservation Education Camp and was involved in the original tented camps and later the building of the present camp.  His contribution and generosity will never be forgotten. As a regular volunteer hunter over many years and a fount of knowledge on bush lore, hunting, butterflies and many other subjects, he was always an inspiration to the students and adults alike.

Ian will be remembered as a very honest and courageous person who stood by his principles at all times.  His contribution to the Zimbabwe Hunters Association and Rifa Conservation Education Camp will be sorely missed.

Our deepest sympathy to Biddy and all the family.
