Gary Nicholas Ivanski
December 19, 1955 - July 1, 2015
It is with heavy hearts that our family announce the passing of Gary, son of Joseph and Alice Ivanski, after his lengthy battle with AML Leukemia and Myelofibrosis. Gary fought a great fight for several years but it was now time for him to rest. Loving husband of Di Liu and devoted father of Adam and Joseph. Former husband of Donna Kowal of Montreal. Dear brother of Mark (Heidi) and Cindy (Hatem). He will also be missed by his niece Julie, nephews Omar and Elliot, favourite cousin Doreen, colleagues and many friends and family worldwide. Gary worked with locomotive maintenance, repair, overhaul and service contract management, with his start being in Montreal (1974) at CN Rail thanks so much to his Uncle Gerry. His technical expertise and passion to travel led him to live and work overseas under many different flags for close to twenty years. Gary lived in Tanzania, Iran, Kenya, Malaysia, China and lastly Egypt. Gary always felt so blessed and privileged to work for General Electric Canada for over 25 years and to live and fulfill his career dreams. During his five year assignment in Kenya he was blessed by the Lord and received His Revelation which Gary believed was the greatest gift of his life. Gary was baptized in Nairobi in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. A Celebration of Gary’s Life will be held on Monday July 6, 2015 at the DODSWORTH & BROWN FUNERAL HOME – “ANCASTER CHAPEL”, 378 Wilson Street East, on Monday July 6 from 12 to 1:30 p.m., followed by a funeral service in the chapel, with interment at Garners Corners Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Juravinski Hospital for the professional and passionate care received from Dr. Brian Leber and the medical staff.
