Ivan Hilding

Brighton: August 2, 1933 - May 10, 2014. It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Ivan Enstrom at age 80. Son of Ivan Hilding Enstrom and Dorothy Hamme Enstrom. Survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Betsy Parker Enstrom; daughter, Linda Enstrom Ureles (Dr. Steven); sons, Eric Hilding Enstrom and David Mather Enstrom; grandchildren, Evan Mather Enstrom, Ian Alexander Enstrom Ureles, Olivia Jane Mather Ureles, Myles Hilding Enstrom; brother-in-law, Christopher Parker; sister-in-law, Sarah Parker Letournau (Frank); cousins, David Ambruster and Peggy Ambruster Snyder; nieces, Dr. Bronwyn Parker Cooper (Gil), Rebecca and Ava Cooper; nephew, Andrew Parker.

Ivan retired from Eastman Kodak in 1991 after 31 meaningful years in financial, manufacturing and quality management. In each of these areas, he was directly involved or led the quality assurance efforts. His last assignment at Eastman Kodak was Director of the Quality Services Division, where he had interest in the company's worldwide activities in TQM and ISO-9000 implementation.

Ivan grew up in Natick, MA. He graduated from Tufts University in 1955, where he ran track and was president of Alpha Sigma Phi. His degree was in Mechanical Engineering. He was in NROTC and, upon graduation, received his commission in the U.S. Navy. He was an assigned officer on the USS Perry (DD-844), a destroyer in the Atlantic Fleet based in Newport, and was Engineering Office on the Perry for 3 years.

Ivan and Betsy were married in 1956 in the Martha-Mary Chapel in Sudbury, MA. In 1960, he graduated from Harvard Business School and then began life in Rochester, NY.

He so enjoyed his Evans Farm neighborhood in Brighton, NY; his home was purchased in 1965.

His organizations included a 26 year member of the American Society of Quality (Rochester Section), RMSC, Friends of Acadia National Park, president of Retired Professional Society, Pittsford Carriage Association, Boy Scouts of America, Adirondack Mountain Club of Rochester, Scoutmaster Troop #77, Canandaigua Yacht Club, Maine Alumni of Rochester, and First Presbyterian Church of Pittsford. Every summer Ivan enjoyed outdoor activities and time with his family on Nantucket Island, Long Lake and the Blue Mountain Lake area.

Ivan was loved by his friends and family and will be remembered for his friendliness, integrity, wisdom and humor.

A Memorial Celebration of Ivan's life will be held Sunday, June 1, 2 PM at First Presbyterian Church of Pittsford, 21 Church St., Pittsford, NY. There will be a reception immediately following the service.

Remembrances may be made to First Presbyterian Church of Pittsford. To share a memory of Ivan or send a condolence to the family, visit
