In answer to the request made in 2001. I knew him and his wife, Kathleen, well. They were friends of my grandparents and when I was in Grade 3 my parents sent me to stay with them for a few months since we were living in a remote northern area of Saskatchewan and I was being home schooled. They had two children, David and Joanne. Joanne was my age, David older. David lived in China for some time as an adult; Joanne moved to Hawaii and then to California. Sadly, she never recovered fully from a hit and run accident and died some years ago. I don't know if David is still living.
Kathleen was my Mom's confidante and a wonderful woman. Ivory seemed older, though I don't know if that was the case. My stay with them was cut short when a friend of Ivory was accidentally shot and killed on a hunting outing. Ivory was there and subsequently suffered a nervous breakdown. He and Kathleen were lovely, generous and warm- hearted people.
