I was his dissertation adviser & mentor at UConn and just heard the news. Deeply saddened by this. I've uploaded a photo of him taken at an end of semester gathering in 2003 when he was still doing course work at UConn (2nd from right). Iain was such a special person; he will be missed
Thank you so much, Iain. Whether you knew it or not, you were always a mentor to me. I could never truly express the respect and admiration I had and continue to hold for you. More importantly, you were a dear friend. It is my great privilege to have known you.
To his friends and family, you have my deepest sympathies, but also my heartfelt gratitude for sharing such a wonderful soul with the world.
So sorry to hear this terrible news. Sending prayers for his precious little ones.
You will be missed Iain! Your smile and kindness will not be forgotten!
I am deeply saddened to hear of this loss. I wish we had one more hike to 40 Acre Rock so that I could say goodbye, dear friend.
I just found out and am so sorry for your loss. Even though I had lost touch with Iain these last few year I still loved him and I am so sad to hear that he is gone.
May you rest in peace Iain. He was my professor and all the political science students at UNCC loved his classes. He was brilliant and enthusiastic about his teaching. I am deeply sorry for all of his family, I wish you all comfort during this difficult time. He always encouraged us to care about space, the world, current events and our futures in shaping society. He will be greatly missed and never forgotten by his students.
Irene, I was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Iain' death. I think of his time at TNCS with great fondness. My heart goes out to you.
May you find peace in your travels beyond these mortal bonds.
