    Ian was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on August 28, 1938 and died in Seattle, Washington, on July 7, 2017, at the age of 78 years old.

    My dad lost his wife and I lost my mom, Olga McKenna, on January 1, 2017.

    Dad is survived by his only child, Claire Piersol, his son-in-law Ryan Piersol, and his grandson, Mason Michael Piersol; and his older brother, Thomas Terrance McKenna.

    Dad lived in three countries and three states during his lifetime: Northern Ireland, Canada and the United States. He emigrated from Belfast, Northern Ireland, to Toronto, Canada when he was eighteen years old. This was in the winter of 1956.  He also lived in California, Hawaii and Seattle. Dad spent the past 40 years in Seattle, Richmond Beach and Edmonds. 

    He had many interests. His biggest passions in life was traveling, traditional jazz, reading, soccer, and world affairs. His love of travel was profound evident in the fact that he had traveled to eighty countries! 

    My dad...
