Dear Lynn, We were surprised to find out that Ivan has passed away. We will always remember him as a friendly and helpful neighbour. Ivan's red Pickup is a constant reminder of him. It was a pleasure to have known you both and we are left with good memories. Our sincere condolences. Elfi and Theresia

Dear Lynn and David, We are so sorry for your loss. It is far too soon. We have wonderful memories of our visits when the "kids" were young. Ivan had such a wry sense of humour. He would keep me in stiches during our conversations. Even now he brings a smile to my face! You have captured an excellent picture of his "look." We will miss him greatly. Much love to you both, Terry & Nancy

Lynne, as you know, Ivan was my buddy both at work and outside of work. I will miss him! He was a mentor to me. Take care!

I had the great good fortune to meet my good buddy Ivy in1975 when I first joined the work force at the CRD. I liked him from the moment I met him, he was such a likable guy, easy going, quick to laugh, quick to crack a smile, and always good to be around. I left the CRD in 1982 but we always kept in touch and on the occasions Ivy and Lynne would grace our dinner table, it was always a lively fun evening. I fondly remember dropping in on them, on many occasions, mostly uninvited, when they lived out in Brentwood Bay, whenever I was in the area. If it was afternoon, there was usually a bottle of red open and if there wasn’t Ivy was quick to open one! A lovely Ivy quote I’ll never forget “Whoever said you should sip wine was a fool!” What’s not ta luv.. I got out to see him early in 2019 when he was still at home, we had a good visit, he made me a coffee and we had a good old chinwag for a coupla hours. I could see he wasn’t feeling up to snuff and eventually he apologized and said he was feeling tired. I left and sadly that was the last time I got to see him. By the time he was hospitalized Covid had pretty much precluded any chance of any further visits. Truly a human being I wish I’da got to spend more time with. RIP. You’ll be sadly missed old friend but every evening when I “guzzle” my glass of red wine, as per your instructions? I’ll think on you.

Hi Lynne, I was very sad to see Ivan's picture in the obituary section of the T-C. I remember 'bumping' into you and Ivan in Centennial Park during our walks. I also remember Ivan's sense of humour and the accompanying 'look in his eye' during all the work we did on the CRD sewage projects. Maybe I will see you on the 'trail' in Sidney. All the best for the next phase in your life. Mike

Hi Lynne, I’m very sorry to hear that Ivan had passed. I know he’d been ill for a while. I’m thinking of all the wonderful memories of when we lived on San Lorenzo Ave. and then great memories after that. Time passes so quickly. I’ll be thinking of you during this difficult time. Leslie

Dear Lynne and David. It was a pleasure knowing you and Ivan. Ivan's willingness to pitch in and help out at work was always appreciated, while his quick wit was ever a hit, and kept us on our toes looking for an apt rejoinder. Ivan had a great sense of humour and we'll never forget the time, on your front steps, when you ripped his pants down. Our thoughts are with you. Donna and Jerry

Dear Lynne, I was so surprised to see Ivan’s handsome face in the obituaries this morning. The last time I saw the two of you, you were on your bikes on the Lochside trail. We are so very sorry that this has happened and hope the love and support of family and friends - especially little Violet - will help you through the days, weeks, months and years ahead. Love from Diane and Tom Carson

Sending love to Lynne, Dave and family. I loved Ivan’s quit wit, come backs and one liners. I will cherish the memories at the ball field.

Dear Lynne & David; We were sorry to read of Ivan's passing. A lovely picture, just as we remember him, with the wry smile. I certainly remember, and appreciated his help at Fireman's Park in our baseball glory days. Our thoughts are with you both in this difficult time. Sandy & Linda Schurman

I am so sorry to hear of Ivan’s passing. Even though I didn’t really know Ivan well, you always spoke about him with affection ( even when you were annoyed with him) so I felt your love for him. I could tell you two had a vibrant relationship. I know you, David and all of his family and friends will miss him and his dry sense of humour. Please accept my sympathies and know you are in my thoughts Sandra from Life labs high volume
