We didn’t know Ian well, but enough to know what a great young man he was. He was our server at several restaurants. We would ask for him and he was always very kind and fun, but always professional. We had nice chats as he was very affable. What a wonderful soul taken way too soon. May God bless his family and friends.
So very sorry for your loss our prayers are with you
