  1. Ivan was manager of Shillidays and my first Boss. From the beginning it was obvious Ivan loved a good party. I have fond memories of shillidays farewell parties. Certainly the best punch I ever had.
    After I left Shillidays I had a cake decorating business. I remember decorating a giant Easter egg cake for Ivan to surprise his wife at a surprise birthday party.
    Ivan was born to hospitality. He was always the best host whenever I went to the cottonwood. Many Mildura groups and businesses held thier little conferences and workshops in his glass room. A friendly smile An engaging conversation and the perfect host what a great life you lived Ivan. My condolences to the family.

  2. As a young sales rep I called on Shillidays every 8 weeks. It is where I met Ivan and developed a rapport with him and his friendly, jovial personality. I also looked him up each time I visited the Gold Coast many years later. So sorry to read he has passed on and taken his charm and personality to heaven. Such a lovely person.
