Though he made a CD in recent years, his only other recorded appearance was three excellent Marty Robbins covers from the Saskatchewan Jubilee Vol. 2: Stars From A Gala Night LP. According to the back cover, Ivan "was selected the Diamond Jubilee Star of 1965 and received a trip a trip to Hollywood and an appearance on Bonanza as winner of the Saskatchewan Talent Search." Condolences to family and friends. He will be missed.
