He was a sorce of endless PM's with tech stuff etc.Starting with his name which was chosen,he had an E.Euro surname.It happens he chose the same surname as me ,and christian name as a nephew of mine in Seattle.His wife has the same as my wife!!!
He started to get more involved with Twitter and Facebook than this site,which I don't use!!.So we drifted.
I kept in touch with photo postings on Smugmug,P'Base,Yahoo,(Flickr)he seemed to have the same slant as me on subjects.
Maps,Industrial Lancashire especially around Burnley and of course Ashton.
He was here in Toronto visiting his brother which could have been but wasn't an opprtuneity to meet.
He is certainly going to be missed in my neck  of the woods.
RIP  Ian!!
