    When we opened the newspaper today and read about Ivan we were in absolute shock. The last time we seen Ivan was in January as we sat together at Raymond’s funeral and shared some special memories.
    We need to cherish each and every day with the people we care about as we do not know what tomorrow will bring.

    With our deepest sympathy,
    Love
    Donna Gord & Nevada Ouellette

    To the Family

    I have known Ivan since I was a child and loved when he came to the house to see my sisters! He became a dear friend to every single brother, sister and my Mom. We all enjoyed his company of joy and laughter. He will be missed…. My blessings go out to you all to have a son, brother, father and friend leaving us at a young age. I have never forgotten who is and never will forget about him…he made me smile and will always make me smile! I am glad that he was apart of my journey!

    MY THOUGHTS ARE WITH THE FAMILY

    Sending Blessings Of Love and Comfort to Ivan’s Family.
    I was as quite shocked and dismayed today when my brother Bob told me of Ivan’s sudden passing. I had not seen Ivan for some time however, when we were friends in the seventies’ I always admired Ivan for his inherent sweetness and gentle soul. He was by far one of the kindest men I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. He strove to make everyone around him comfortable with his gentle humor. May Peace and warm memories give you grace to endure this time of grieving. May you be Blessed with Enduring Love and Compassion during this trial.
    Sincerly, Carolyn Gibson

  13. I’m so sorry to find out that Ivon passed away.
    I really liked working with him at Associated Cabs. He made me think about my actions and he also had a great sense of humour. He was so young and I’m sorry that his journey is over. I’m sorry to his family and relatives.
    I’ll always remember him for something he said to me, that cracked me right up.
    Even though it was years ago, I never forgot him.
    Rest In Peace Ivon 🙂
    Sincerely
    Lisa Kapitan

    I met Ivan in Vietnam in 1994 and had a great time with him. He always made me laugh! He visited me in Holland in 1996. Later on we called occassionally, but over the years this contact faded.
    I will never forget him.

    Sincerely,
    Paul van der Linden
