Ivan was a client and friend of mine for many years. Over the years, he shared many stories about his life, career, and his many interests. He was enthusiastic and engaging about so many interests. What strikes me most is how civic-minded he was--so giving to others! He was a wonderful man! The world is less without him! My sincere condolences to his family.
