Ivan Nohavica, A son, A husband, A Father, A Brother, An Uncle & A Friend.


Ivan was a quite reserved man who loved his entire family. Loved nature, and walked tall among the trees. Ivan loved his Alma Mater University of Wisconsin Madison as he attended many a football games. Ivan was a learned man & always loved to expand his knowledge through books. He loved history, civil war & battles, loved Geopolitics & loved his books on birds, nature, and fishing.
His love of fishing was passed on to his son Jan. Ivan taught Jan all about fishing so well, that Jan was the better fisherman; & of course Ivan did not mind. I think he took pride in his son, as a good father would.
Ivan was a selfless man & it showed in his final journey. Ivan made a bucket list that he and Helga were bound & determined to make together. They journeyed on a train headed to Glacier National Park to take in the glorious scenery. Next, they traveled East to the Coast of Maine & enjoyed the seafood delights that both loved. Finally, they travelled to Ivan's grandfather homeland of Prague where Ivan was reminded of home by eating the local home cooked meals.
Ivan A quite, reserved man yet so profoundly respected for his kindness, his patience and regard to his fellow man, as his neighbors, friends can attest too. God speed my friend as you take your final journey home.




I close with this an excerpt of A Poem by Lord Byron in honor of Ivan Nohavica:

There is pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea and music in its roar;
I love not Man the less, but Nature more.
