Iain worked ashore as an engineer but during the 1970s and 1980s he took a job as chief engineer for an oil rig supply firm which involved a lot of overseas travel. He then worked in the Estates Department at Swansea’s Singleton Hospital until his retirement in 2004. Iain was fond of jazz. He was a keen reader and enjoyed visiting local art galleries. In retirement he liked to visit his daughters wherever they were in the UK and Europe. He died on 23 August 2020.
