It was with great sadness that we share that Ian Ryan (’71), an Old Scholar Boarding student at Westminster, originally from the Eyre Peninsula, passed away on 25 May 2022. His funeral was held last Saturday in the Sir Shirley Jeffries Memorial Chapel. Our thoughts are with his wife Pat, daughter Lorin and sons Alan and Dylan, their partners and Ian’s four grandchildren.
