Ian Martin RIP...
It was with much regret and sadness that I heard last night that our dear friend Ian Martin had passed away. He had been ill for some time and suffered a fall in his kitchen after what appeared to have been either a heart attack or a stroke. The family are being traced and it is hoped that his friends will be able to help celebrate Ian's life in some way at the appropriate time.
I will always remember Ian for his acerbic wit - a moniker he was quite proud of. "I like being call acerbic" he once told me, "it sounds so deliciously tart."
After a particularly waspish verbal or literal sting he'd even relish it with the phrase, "Acerbic? Moi?"
RIP old fella.
