Ivan Douglas Sparling.
Passed away suddenly at the family farm in his 60th year. Husband of Judy and father of Michael and Susanne. Predeceased this February by his son, Bruce.
Grandfather of Jack and Clint. Brother to Bill and Marilyn, John and Wanda, Carol and Lanny, Susie and Rick and Bruce and Mona. Uncle to many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by his parents, Ivan senior and Kay.
Ivan died as he wished - at home on the farm. An avid reader, historian and master machinist who could design, fabricate and repair whatever he turned his mind to.
A sports and political enthusiast, he was always ready to knowledgeably debate any topic.
Following cremation, a memorial service will take place on Thursday October 4, 2012 at 1:00 pm at Trousdale's Funeral Home, Sydenham. Reception after the service is at his sister Carol and Lanny's home at 1153 Retreat Lane, Sydenham.
As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Cancer Society.
