  1. A wonderful man, friend and brother-in-law has gone to a better place.
    Rest in piece Ivan.
    I send my sympathy to both of you, Eleanor & Hugh.
    Aunt Donna

  2. Condolences to Eleanor and family.. Worked with Ivan at London Transit for several years . Excellent employee.
    Former Manager.

  3. So sorry to hear of Ivan’s passing. He will always be remembered as a true gentleman.

  4. The memories with Ivan as a kid visiting the farm are nothing but joyful, with Ivan being the older cousin who made the days enjoyable with the unexpected and unpredictable. Wonderful memories. Condolences to the family.

  5. I am posting this on behalf of my Mom and her sister (the Watson twins from Glencoe) – Mildred and Margaret. They remember Ivan as a fun-loving, great guy. In fact, I understand they both dated him…and fought over him a time or two! Definitely some stories there…but neither Mom or Aunt Marg will give me any details! On their behalf, I extend deepest condolences. (Mom lost her husband, Floyd, in late July so she knows what you are going thru.) May your memories bring you comfort in the days ahead. God bless.
