Ian Findlay CBE

It is with profound sadness we announce the sudden death of our Chief Officer, Ian Findlay CBE, he collapsed and passed away very suddenly on Friday 5 March whilst out on his bike.

Ian was first and foremost a family man and our thoughts are with Ian’s wife Andrea, daughter Lianne, granddaughter Phoebe and the rest of his family at this saddest of times.

Ian was a lifelong outdoor enthusiast. His personal values of responsibility, respect, and care for each other and for our environment were evident to all that had the privilege to know and work with him. Ian will be terribly missed by Paths for All staff, trustees and everyone that came to know him. We are so grateful for his passion, kindness, and personal integrity.

We know there will be many people shocked and deeply saddened by this unexpected news.

Wherever you had the pleasure of knowing Ian from, through work or personal connections, please use this online book of condolence to leave expressions of sympathy and to share memories of Ian.

Thank you

It has been nearly a year since Ian’s passing and I am still not sure of the right form of words to do justice to Ian’s kindness and compassion, as both a leader and a person. Ian’s generosity has touched so many and clearly his kindness manifested in countless forms over the years. Like …

You are missed. You are thought about. You are remembered. You still make me laugh. You still make me think and your influence is still going. Thank you so much Ian, I am so glad I had the opportunity to work with you. …
