Very Sad News, Irn's funeral was today.

Post by sassy on Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:43 am

My dear friend and the person I most respected on the internet and in real life, who stood up for his principles come what may, was laid to rest today. He never boasted about the wonderful things he had done in his life and never forgot his roots. He lost his grown up daughter at the beginning of last year and within a few months had been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. Through it all he carried on supporting his family and his grandsons, one of whom is a Scottish amateur boxing champion who has just turned professional and been signed by Barry McGuigan and the other plays professional football. RIP my friend, you done so good.

Heartbreaking news. Irn was a champion of the underdog, was unfailingly polite , fair and decent.
The whole forum community should spend a moment reflecting on such a sad loss.

R.I.P. Irn. You will be sorely missed.

I couldn't believe when I saw this thread title. I knew he'd been poorly but I didn't know it was that serious. He was a lovely, gentle man, and I'm so sorry he's gone.

Thanks Rags. We knew there wasn't much hope when he was diagnosed, his grandson has been keeping me informed. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word.

I feel really upset. He was always kind to me, and I can't believe we won't see him posting any more.

I didn't know he lost his daughter either. I bet he was a tower of strength to the rest of his family. A very sad loss for them indeed. I know you were good friends Sassy, so you must be devastated.

He's been my friend for a long time now, I can't believe we won't be swapping ideas and running our forum. I lost heart in ES very quickly when I realised how sick Irn was, I simply don't care about it with him gone, it was something we planned together and had all kinds of ideas that will never see the light now. I'm reallly gutted.

I am saddened to hear of his passing... during the recent few years that I have had the opportunity to 'meet' him, chat/debate with him, and get to know him on these forums, he very quickly won my respect, and has always been a pleasure (and I feel a privilege) for me whenever we have engaged in conversation/discussion here and elsewhere online!


I'm sure he will be deeply missed by all who knew him... a top man!

I really liked Irn, I posted with him and moderated with him a couple of times over the years.

I’m so sorry that he’s gone. Truly. I feel really saddened by this news.

My condolences to you sassy as his friend and to all his family.

Neutral

So, so sad...

I knew it couldn't be too good, when we hadn't heard from him  in so long..

It was Irn who emailed me with this sites address all that time ago, telling me that he and sassy had found a "new" and  promising site to check out.

He will be deeply missed by a wide and varied range of people who encountered him on these forums..

Sad to hear. He was one person I constantly locked horns with and got into many rows with. But he will be sorely missed. I will miss the bouts we had. My thoughts go out to his family.

May he rest in peace

It's always sad to hear of a passing on forums, of posters.

I was shocked to see this.

Be at rest now Irn.

How heartbreaking. I’m so very sorry Sassy.

He was a lovely, funny, thoughtful gentleman.

I'm stunned.  Irn was one I thought (I wished) would go on forever.  I knew he was ill, but I can't imagine our gang going on without him.  We will, of course...but god we will miss him.

Look at me, Irn. Hear me.  I miss you and I love you brother.  Musselburgh will never be the same.  We will never be the same.  Have a good journey.

I am both shocked and deeply saddened at this news. My sincere condolences to Sassy and to his family. I knew that he was ill, but I had no idea that his condition had been so serious.

In truth, our paths had crossed very little of late. We had our scraps in the past - over the ever toxic subject of politics, naturally - but I like to think that there was no real rancour, certainly no hatred...and perhaps even some deep mutual respect which, with the hindsight of advancing years and a recognition of one's own mortality, could and should have been expressed somewhat better and more frequently.

RIP Irn Bru. If there is a rainbow bridge in the world of forums, I'm sure that our paths will cross again.

There is literally NO ONE on the internet whom I respected as much as I did Irn Bru.

His fierce principles were on display for everyone to see. NO COMPROMISE.

I feel very privileged to have known someone like him.

Seriously sad news. First exchanged posts with Irn back in 2010 (in Sky's infamous UK Politics section) and we got on well right away. We shared a similar outlook on most things and I admired how strongly he always stood by his principles. When we did disagree, our arguments always remained civil.

Mainly though, he was just an outright nice guy.

You'll be missed, Irn x

I didn't really know Irn very well, but this clever cartoon  he took the time to draw and post shows what a lovely thoughtful  man he was.

"I'm a bit late but a belated happy birthday to you Syl. I had planned to have a present for you based on one of your favourite pastimes and worked ny socks off preparing a surprise for you but it all went wrong. The drawings and specifications were a bit misleadeding. I'll work on it for next year. For what it's worth here's how it turned out..."

Yeah and that Scottish football team still suck Irn. We argued over that for at least a decade.

I’ll never change my mind!

Like i say, you never know how much you will miss someone, until they are gone. Irn, was like my arch enemy in debate. At times it got out of hand, more so with me, but our passions always run away with us. You had two people who researched well and were at odds with each other on many issues.

I will really miss him. More so, because he made me challenge myself and at times emotionally compremised me. To the point i was a dick to him. It shows he was the better person between us. I just will sorely miss him.

One thing we shared and love was 60's music and know more than anything, he will look down and smile at this tribute song I now play for him.

In true Scottish form

Because its sad to lose someone we know.

What is more important is how we remember how they lived

He fought for his beliefs on things I did not agree with at times, but never pulled back on his punches.

I think the best way to remember people, is to celebrate how they lived

He would not want you to be down

You keep their memory alive, but remebering how they lived, even at the expense of me.

I am not shamed of that

You don't need to write anything, Ben. Now he feels you...what's in your heart. Just pour a little love out.

There are some lovely posts on this thread. Looking back, it was obvious that he was very ill, and yet it doesn't seem possible that he's gone.

I think I felt instinctively that he was a good person, even though I didn't know him personally and I knew very little about his personal life. I hope he knew how well respected and liked he was on here.

Irn was always the grown-up in the room. He exuded confidence, but was never abrasive.
