  1. So sorry to hear about Ivor. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. It was certainly fun dancing in a square with him. He was always so happy and lively.

  2. One of the last persons that I would expect to be writing condolences for, but Ivor leaves behind plenty of good friends, myself included. His smiling face will be missed at Horton Legion. Polish up the dance floors God, you’ve got some new talent coming in!

  3. Ken and Norma McNicol :

    Sorry to hear of Ivor’s passing. Although we lost touch over the last few years, we still remember all the good fun we hand with him and your Mom both in Winnipeg and Calgary. Ken remembers Ivor always referring to him as ‘me old flower’ and of course all the dancing and fun times. We are sorry we can’t be there on Tuesday as we are in Radium for the week, but our thoughts are with you all.
