MILNE Ian McKay AM 5th November 1919 – 11th July 2017 Aged 97 years Loving and loved husband of Beth (deceased) for 62 years and loving husband of Wendy. Loved Father of Helen, Douglas, Peter and Jennifer; Father-in-law to Clifford, Rosalie (deceased) and Craig; Grandfather/Grandfather-in-law to Tanya and Darcy, to Robyn and Andre, to Carolyn and Jonathan; Grandfather to Anna, Sarah and Juliette and to Ruby; Great Grandfather to Ezekiel, Rush and Ava, to Caleb, Riley and Isabella. Lay Christian leader, prominent businessman and philanthropist Ian's life was dedicated to serving God in many honorary roles and in business Passed peacefully from this life and carried by those grace scarred hands of Jesus into the new creation and a glorious reuniting with Beth. For I am convinced that neither life, nor death, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nothing else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord' A service of thanksgiving for Ian's life will be held at St Alfred's Anglican Church 107 Springfield Road Blackburn North on Friday 21st July 2017 at 10.30 am A private burial service will precede this service Our grateful thanks to the staff at Ringwood Private Hospital and Regis Shenley Manor in Camberwell.
Thank you Ian for your warmth, your care, your values, your sharing, your integrity and your most wonderful insights into God's Kingdom. Such a rich, committed, prayerful and sacrificial Christian journey which does not end here; but it is very hard saying goodbye for now. I am sure God will find a book or 2 that you havn't read yet. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints". Psalm 116:15. With heartfelt thanks and love forever, from Richard.
He ran the race well and kept his eyes on the prize. He was an example to us all, our hearts go out to you in this time of grief at separation. We pray that your sorrow is tempered by the knowledge of the joy of Ian's homecoming.
