Karl Roy Ivarsson|
We are sad to announce that Karl Roy Ivarsson passed away on April 22nd 2014 in Zermatt, Switzerland.
Karl was born on march 22nd, 1930, to Norwegian immigrants Sigmund Ivarsson and Solveig Opdahl Ivarsson.
Karl attended Garfield High School, the University of Washington and served in the United States Marine Corps. Married to Julie Vance Harrison in 1952, they moved to Switzerland where they raised their six children.
He will be sorely missed by his loving companion Ursula Waeny, his children Victoria, Cameon, Lloyd, Sigmund, Margarette and Karl Roy, his 11 grandchildren and his sisters Solveig Thomson and Karol Green along with numerous nephews and nieces, cousins and friends from around the world.
A celebration of his life will take place in Zermatt, Switzerland, in June 2014, the place that he marked forever with his creative ideas, the fabulous business he built, the people he mentored, and where everybody calls him affectionately " the Boss"
