Bumping for Ian's family so they know I am still thinking of you and praying your days to come are better.

Gone but not forgotten peeps let them know where still here and if you can afford a buck or two throw it to Ian's family to help with the burdens of health care.

RIP, friend I never met. You ran it out to the end. Full value.
Climbing in the desert today, may have a chance to spin the Brutus wheel in person if not, I will soon, and am doing it in spirit.

Jay I hope I get to spin Brutus wheel one day and spin it three times if you would please

Once for Brutus once for Ian and once for Dan O who's passing is just days away on the 23rd if you would.

These are our tribe and to forget them is just plain wrong even if we never shook a hand or shared a rope honor our fallen brothers.

Been thinkin' on this a lot. Many times, finding an appropriate way to express one's feelings on something is hard. The words fall short, for me at least.
Be at Peace, Ian. Where we go, you go with us.

My condolences to Ian's friends and family. He was a real man and a rascal I bet before this began to draw him down.

I had the pleasure of exchanging emails and phone calls with him while he was still fully stoked to get back up on the Captain. I traded him a couple of Camalots for a 1 1/4" Colorado Nut from the old days as he was trying to fill out his wall rack. We had some laughs about how much things had changed and how much impedimentia was getting in the way nowadays.

I am sorry that he wasn't able to visit with the clouds and stone before his vitality was taken from him but I am sure that looking back on his climbing days gave him some measure of strength in facing the inevitable so bravely. Having community here on the ST helped shore him up as well.

He lives on in our memory now and I am glad that I have a small aluminum reminder to tune me back in to his channel whenever I pick it up.



Rest in Peace Ian...and then come back and shake it up again with us!

I'll be looking for you...

Nice share Steve Grossman.

Bumps for our man Ian and his family. We're still here for you. I'm hoping more stories will be told for the record so Ian's family might get some stories they don't know about his time in the mountains with his partners.

I can't remember if I posted this info but a quick scroll through I didn't see it, so here's info from Ian's wife on his memorial service to which all are welcome:

Charlie Gill --- Memorial Service ---Saturday November 24th 11:oo am. Allen & Dahl Funeral Chapel in Palo Cedro. From Redding, Take 44 to Deshutes, turn right....if you go more than 75 yards, youve gone too far. It is set kind of back in on the right side of Deshutes. Food & Drink to follow at my house, in Redding right by the Wed Nite Live Church. 469 Tourmaline Way, Redding. Or come to the service & follow the crowd. Any and all are welcome. It would have meant alot to him, now it means a lot to Trevor and I.

Thanks again everyone for all your messages of support.
Audrey

For those who have asked or are interested flowers can be sent to:
Allen & Dahl Funeral Chapel
9110 Deschutes Rd
Palo Cedro, CA 96073

Home address:
