In Loving Memory – Ian Davidson
The Old Haileyburians Association is saddened to hear of the passing of Ian Davidson aged 82 on 18 February 2023. Ian provided magnificent service to Haileybury as the School Accountant from 1987 – 2005, was a Haileybury Society Patron, and a highly engaged member of the Haileybury community. Ian was also the father of OHA Alumni Director Russell Davidson (OH 1986) and current staff member Cameron Davidson (OH 1999).
A man of humility and integrity, Ian provided loyal support to Principals Michael Aikman and Robert Pargetter. He embraced the School both within and outside the office walls. He was known to offer astute advice to the cricket and football coaches of his era. Ian was frequently seen providing support to the Haileybury teams of both sports as they performed on the Rendall Oval.
Ian was a wonderful man and a true gentleman who always took an active interest in others. He was an extremely proud family man who upheld strong values in all aspects of his life.
We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Margaret, and to Russell, Carolyn and Cameron, and his devoted family.
A celebration of Ian’s life will be held on Monday, 27 February at 9.30am in the Boyd Chapel at the Springvale Botanical Cemetery, 600 Princes Highway, Springvale.
