Ivan J. Mihail Obituary
April 19, 1924 - February 24, 2016 We celebrate the life of Ivan John Mihail who passed away on February 24, 2016. Ivan, born on 19 April 1924 in Skopje, Yugoslavia, was the husband and life-long companion of Virginia DeNyse Mihail who passed away in 2009. He is survived by his children Karl and Jeanne and his grandchildren, Nikola, Siri and Emily. As a young adult he proudly served during World War 2 in the Army Corps of Engineers which deeply influenced his yearning for a world at peace. Ivan completed his BA in Political Science at USC in 1950. During his career, Ivan excelled as a journeyman printer until the advent of the early computers. He worked to integrate computers into businesses from the first programs created by the physical wiring of machines, through punch cards, and ultimately founding his own company, Automated Business Systems. In his private life, Ivan pursued his passion for art, writing and the outdoors. He leaves behind a collection of paintings, poems, short stories and essays, as well as memories of hikes and camping trips with his beloved wife of 61 years. Ivan is also survived by his sisters Helen and Sonya and their extended families. His brother Michael pre-deceased him.
