Ivo emigrated to the United States in 1984. Soon after his arrival he met his wife Vida Anton. Ivo was involved in many local Croatian organizations and was a member of St. Cyril & Methodius Roman Catholic Church in New York. He was also a member of the church choir.

Ivo was best known for his kind heart, his warm hospitality and the best manners any gentlemen ever had. He was also a chef extraordinaire. Anyone invited to his table was in for a gourmet feast. Ivo's door was always open and he made all feel welcome in his home.

Ivo leaves behind his wife Vida, son Ante, daughter Petra and sister Neves. He was a loving father figure to Eddie and Michael Anton and will be dearly missed by their children Zach, Chase, Caleb, Lindsay, Ashlyn and Isabella. His large extended global family grieves his passing.
