Ian Parsons

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our good friend and fellow squash player, Ian Parsons. Ian died in a tragic accident at his farm on Monday March 25, 2019.

Ian was a long time member of the Pickering Squash Club serving on the executive eighteen times, nine of which were as President. He was the 1997-1998 recipient of the Chris Doona Award. He is most notably remembered as the driving force that guided the Club during the planning and construction of the Doubles Squash Courts. His hard work over a ten year period resulted in the opening of the courts in 2009.

Ian will be greatly missed by all who came in contact with him on and off the court. He was always a gentleman willing to help anyone learn and improve at the game he loved so much.

Rest in Peace my friend.
