Ivan was born in Richmond, VA on January 16th, 1990. He graduated with a high school diploma from New Haven Adult Education, and loved working in food service and landscaping. He had a passion for metal and woodwork, gardening and being an all-around handyman. All who knew Ivan loved him. He was incredibly caring, supportive and personable. There was nothing Ivan liked better than an interesting conversation with a good, or new, friend; he could have an engaging conversation with just about anyone. He was deeply committed to his family and was always there to brighten the lives of others with his witty jokes and insightful stories. Ivan will be missed deeply but never forgotten.
