Iain taught geography at Saltfleet High School for many years. While there he coached football and volleyball, travelled with students overseas, enjoyed many canoe trips to Algonquin Park and ski trips in Quebec and Vermont. His great love for his children led him to become involved with local sports in Beamsville where he coached them in hockey and soccer. He was the Lincoln Soccer convenor for many years. Iain had many talents and interests but above all he loved his family. He was proud to be a member of the Master Gardener group. He enjoyed reading, cooking, fishing, travelling and good conversation. He had been fishing, hiking and camping in the Temagami area for 70 years, ever since he was a boy who came to Canada from Scotland. He was planning a fishing trip for June which Alexander will now have to take alone but with amazing memories of beautiful days together. Iain continued to be a lifelong learner for after he retired from teaching he took horticulture courses at Niagara College. There will be a celebration of Iain’s well lived life in July.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Iain
