Ian didn’t act in this particular piece but was a pivotal part of the behind-the-scenes team, and I worked with him in the future in a series of overnight Slapdash events. He was always positive, always gregarious, never judgmental, and a really genuine, sweet guy.
I’d run into him occasionally in a grocery store (where he was sometimes working and sometimes shopping) and his positivity and earnestness never flagged. He always seemed happy to see me.
He’d just turned 40 a few days ago.
His sudden departure has really affected me. He’ll be missed.
