Ian Moore Wilson, who was on holiday in Barcelona with his wife Valerie, described as adventurous, generous and compassionate
A Canadian grandfather is the latest victim of the Spain terror attacks to be named, after his daughter released a statement hailing the efforts of those who fought to save his life.
Ian Moore Wilson was on holiday with his wife of 53 years, Valerie, when terrorists drove a van into crowds along the Barcelona thoroughfare of Las Ramblas on Thursday afternoon.
Their daughter, Fiona, a Vancouver police officer, issued a statement on Friday thanking bystanders and emergency workers who cared for her mother and tried to save her fathers life, and those who had offered their sympathy and support.
She described her father as compassionate, generous, adventurous, and always game for a lively debate, a good book, exploring new places, and a proper-sized pint.
Earlier, an American man was named as among the dead. The family of Jared Tucker, 42, from Walnut Creek, California, said he was among the 13 people killed in the Las Ramblas attack.
