Ivan passed away at the Menno Hospital on October 2, 2015 at the age of 97. Predeceased by wife Barbara. They enjoyed one another’s company for 71 years and had many, many adventures together including boating down the Inland Waterway from Montreal to Florida four times, developing a real estate business, building houses, travelling the U.S. and Canada and many other ventures which always kept the two of them busy. Finally settling in BC, Ivan and Barbara first moved to Mission, Salt Spring and finally to Abbotsford, where they spent their retirement years. Packing 3 lifetimes into one is an amazing feat, but that’s what this little guy did; leaving behind many, many friends. Survived by son Bob, daughter Nancy (Grant) Dohery, grandchildren Hugh Dyer and Evan Dohery, sister-in-law Dureen (Rolf) Zeller and niece Susan and Karen. Heartfelt thanks to the staff at Menno Home East 2 for all the loving care they took of Dad and Mom in their remaining years. A Celebration of Ivan’s life will take place on October 15, 2015 at 2:00 pm at Funeral Chapel, A Simple Cremation, 11969 216th Street, Maple Ridge, BC.
