Clyde Region was sorry to learn of the passing of Ian Fletcher earlier this month.
Ian was born into a family with long connections with Scouting and Guiding so it was no surprise when he joined his local Cub Pack aged 8 and Scouting played a big part in his life from there on.
For many years, Ian was Cub Scout Leader at the 139th Glasgow where he ran a thriving Pack, ensuring that young people got the most out of the programme and summer camps around the UK were always the highlight of the year.
Not content with running his Pack, Ian was ADC (Cub Scouts) and actively supported other Packs around the District, visiting them to support new leaders and organising District events.
As well as volunteering in his Group and District, Ian had a long association with Glasgow Gang Show having been part of the Stage Crew team then latterly chairing the show's Business Committee, overseeing the finances and administration for Gang Show.
Despite the challenges that his health regularly set him, Ian lived life to the full and got the most out of everything that he got involved with.
Ian was called to higher service on 12 September 2010 and nearly 100 Scouting friends joined with his family to give thanks for someone who was always ready to help others and who enriched the lives of many.
He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with his family at this time.Author: Gary Bainbridge
