Ian Favager had a personality and sense of humour that filled a room. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. I have very fond memories of the time I was fortunate enough to serve with him at 1 CDHSR. Rest in Peace soldier.

Ian and I first me at 1 CDHSR as well and he became a great friend and brother-in-arms. I remember him standing out in the cold of winter warfare training, grumbling about how cold it was while making tea with no parka on, just standing there in his shirt and suspenders…
I am a better man for having Ian as a friend and mentor. My sincerest condolences to his family and the Corps.

All the members of the CFJSR offer Lesley and the family our sincere condolences for the recent passing of LCol Ian Favager. Ian was a member of 1 CDHSR and a friend to many. Lest we forget. VVV

Was this the UK RSigs officer? I am a retired Australian Army Officer who studies at Shrivenham in 1990. I lived next door to a LT Ian Favager, RSigs, and his wife Andie (a German girl he’d met while serving in Germany). Ian was doing his undergraduate degree and when he finished was posted to Hong Kong, I recall. Does anyone know if it’s the same man?

Yes, that is the same Ian Favager. In fact he and Andre lasted divorced and he was remarried to Lesley. A great loss to the Corps.
