I’ve known Ivan, his family and his sister Joyce for almost 40 years. He was always the nicest man with the best smiling attitude. He was a friend to so many and will be greatly missed. I just saw him in a store recently and he said…. I’m gonna follow you around and see what you’re doing. You haven’t changed one bit!…. RIP my friend.

I was sad to hear of Gene’s (aka Ivan) passing and appreciate him teaching me surveying when I was in college back when we were both much younger. Praying for the family and other friends he left.
