Ivan attended the DuBois Area Schools before entering the US Army. He was stationed in Okinawa before returning home to help on the family farm. Ivan drove truck for Shaw Trucking in Brockway until his retirement.
He was a life member of the NRA and the DuBois Rifle & Pistol Club "Green Mountain League." He loved hunting, driving truck, farming, gardening and his blueberry bushes. He especially loved his family.
