He has one more great grand child, he was very proud of Ivanna and she was pregnant with Rhett. Ivan was so excited to be able to hold that sweet boy.
From a young age he loved to play the guitar and sing. He had a band and he toured around with them enjoying playing and meeting new people. His other loves were spending time with his family and making everyone laugh. He could honestly make anyone laugh. He was such a goofball. He also loved to go fishing and to be outside. He certainly had some good fisherman tales.
Above all he was a lover of life!
His memorial services will be held at Dengal and Son Funeral Home in Louisburg, Kansas on Monday 1, 2017.
