Gary & Barb Hillman. :

Our sincere condolences to all of Ivan's family. He was such a great example of Christian love an kindness. God also gave him a great talent in his music. So many people have been blessed by his love to share Gods love in this way.
I also suspect he and Jesus might ideas about carpentry as they fellowship in heaven. He will be dearly missed but he set a great example while he was here. May God give you, the family, peace, comfort and assurance as he plays guitar in heaven.
