Rest In Peace Ian Henderson

Recommended Posts

Gutted to hear the sad news that Ian has passed away. He was a colossus for the Lanarkshire Federation. I worked with him on the Commmittee for 16 years. A more conscientious Secretary you could not meet. We became good friends and I am proud of that. I would like to pass on my condolences to Christine and her family and also Ian Lindsay, his partner in the pigeons.

Very sad news indeed Ian was 89 past and fell last Sunday and fractured his hip

Have known Ian for 55 years + a highly intelligent man with a good head for figures

which made him the ideal secretary for Lanarkshire Federation which he excelled at


Sincere condolences to Christine and all his family

Yes Ian took over the Federation in 1972 when the Fed was on it’s knees financially because of poor management. His stewardship lasted 39yrs turning the Fed into the largest individual Federation in the UK and possibly Europe wide. He negotiated hard nosed deals throughout his time as secretary ensuring when he did step down the Fed was on a solid financial foundation to move forward and subsequently become self sufficient.

To his family, of whom he was so proud of their achievements in life, and Ian Lindsay my most sincerest condolences to you all it’s a massive and very sad loss at what are already the most difficult times in all our lives. RIP Ian you will be remembered for many years to come. God Bless You.
