Not sure what to say?

A great guy, will be sorely missed.

Fly free in the great unknown Ian.You always took an interest in what i was up to.Always willing to give & share advice, esp. in farming.You didnt suffer fools gladly, but the twinkle in your eyes & wee smile said so much. Rest in peace.

Lovely man. I knew him briefly in the 80's over deer business but he was a friend of my brother, through Pirates rugby and Otago stock firm connections. Like all Otago boys he was a rugby hero to me as a schoolboy, particularly on the Whineray tour, and when he scored his 2 tries against the Springboks.
I just missed seeing him in Mooloolaba recently and heard he wasn't good, so I'm very sad to hear he's gone.
Good footballer, good man.

Sad news,condolences to the family.
Murray Farrant King's in the 50s.

Jacq and Deno, so sorry for the loss of your brother. Love to the family.

Deepest Sympathies to the Smith Family. I remember growing up in the 70s when Spooky lived in Southland and my dad Colin and spooky and friends who were stock agents and farmers raced several racehorses together. They won a number of races and had a lot of fun together. Horses like Ice Pack.Sudden Change . Cockatoo to name a few.They always kept in touch and I can remember as a kid calling into Peel Forest on family holiday from Invercargill and visiting. My Dad has little sight these days...

Our deepest sympathy to you all at this sad time.

Dear Gareth and family. A note to express our sadness of the death of your father. Our thoughts will be with you over the coming days. We often speak of Spooky and the times we spent together at Riverview. Warm regards.

To the Family of IST SMITH(AB644)
I Offer my Sincere Condolences and was Saddened to hear that Ian Passed away suddenly.
I will miss our chats.
Sincerely Murray G Sturgeon
