In memory of
Ian McClement Pounds
CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh - Ian McClement Pounds, son of Sue and Lew Pounds, of Southbury, CT, passed away in Chittagong, Bangladesh, due to ALS. He was 55. He attended the University of Colorado and Oxford University, and degreed at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Ian ran a canvas works company in Sitka, Alaska, counseled teenagers in Middlebury, Vermont, and was a volunteer firefighter there. He spent many years participating in and coordinating the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference at Middlebury College. In 2008 Ian began volunteer work in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he taught English, Drama, and Music within the AFCECO children's orphanage system. Over the years he built lasting relationships with the children and staff there. He led two student field trips to the U.S. In the second one he toured the country with students living in a huge recreational vehicle they affectionately referred to as "the Magic Bus." The children gave speeches about their lives and about AFCECO, and the difference that organization has made for them. They raised $100,000 in donations. Ian went on to teach at the Asian University for Women in Chittagong, Bangladesh in 2013. Ian is survived by a wife, two step-sons, three sisters, two brothers, one aunt-in-law, five nieces and nephews, three former wives, dozens of sponsors of AFCECO, and hundreds of children around the world who grew up knowing, loving, and learning from this extraordinary man. Memorial contributions may be made to the Bread Loaf Writers Conference in Ian's name. Donations may also be made in his memory to AFCECO by visiting AFCECO.org.
