Lt Col Ian H. McBeth Memorial

Lieutenant Colonel Ian H. McBeth lost his life tragically when his C-130 aerial tanker crashed while fighting the wildfires in Australia. Though he will be missed dearly, Ian gave his life as he lived it, in service to others and his sacrifice will not be forgotten.

Ian was a loving husband and father to three amazing children. Let us honor Ian’s sacrifice by showing his family that they will forever be held in our hearts.

This GoFundMe campaign is dedicated to the benefit and future of the McBeth family. All proceeds will go exclusively toward their immediate needs and the future education of Ian and Bowdie’s three children.
