I have just heard that Ashtonian54, Ian, passed away on July 5th in the US, I don't know the details, but I'm sure you will all remember him as once being a big contributor on here. RIP Ian.

Sad news, I guess we're all getting on, stay safe everybody, RIP Ian.
I'm convinced 90% of the software on my computer doesn't do anything except send me notifications that there's a new version of itself.

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!!

Sad news indeed.  I was in his brotherís class at primary school. Stephen W.... the rest of which I cannot spell! The family did indeed live on Burlington Street opposite the small chapel. RIP
