    Much loved and admired older brother of Kerry (dec), Neil and Anne.

    Iain was a distinguished journalist at The West Australian, The Times (London), The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald and was a reporter and sub-editor at Parliamentary Hansard across Australia.

    His wit, generosity and guidance will be deeply missed.
