I am so sad to read of Ivan’s passing. Many times we chatted about farming and the weather and our love of the big old John Deere equipment. I will always remember him as a very honest hard working farmer. My sincere sympathy to all of the family. Sending Kevin and Kyle lots of love and hugs your Dad/Grandpa will be dearly missed. I’m sure Ivan will watch over the crops and harvest from heaven above. May we toast him with a fine shot of Forty Creek.
So sorry and until we meet again Farmer Ivan from Farmer Sherry Caldwell
