  2. A wonderful tribute and further insight into a lovely man, a true gentleman and a contributor to society. Vale Ian Cootes

  3. I was a police squad mate of Ian having started at what was the Police Depot in St.Kilda Road, on the 26th of February 1963. He, like myself marched up LaTrobe St. from the tram stop after travelling up from the depot to begin our police lives, he 14451 and me 14464.
    I watched to service today and was most impressed. I couldn’t make it but had a lump in my throat remembering the great man.

  5. A beautiful service for a wonderful man. I cleaned Ian’s office in St Kilda Road for a short time. My brother Keith (Butch) Tubbs drove Shell tankers, then did logistics in Spring Street in the city for him, for many years until his death at age 43. Ian brought Vin Stenta in to his office to meet me one day whilst I was there. Vin and Cootes Group were very kind when we lost our beloved brother. RIP Ian, a true gentleman.

  7. My heartfelt condolences to the family.
    I first met Ian in 1998 when he interviewed me for a job with his company when he got the Shell local work, he made an everlasting impression on me and I spent a happy 15 years working for Cootes Tanker Service.
    Ian was an absolute gentleman and he inspired fierce loyalty to himself and the magnificent company he founded.
    R.I.P. Ian, you have left a lasting legacy and will be greatly missed.
