It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ivan Godin, beloved companion of Donna Spring. Ivan passed away peacefully on October 25, 2020 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre after 87 years of a full and meaningful life.
Ivan was born in Waugh in the county of Gloucester, New Brunswick on March 6, 1933. He grew to be a kind, hard-working and compassionate gentleman. His strong work ethic secured him many years of employment in the coal mines. Ivan won the heart of a lovely young lady, Lena Turron, and they were married sharing many happy times together until her passing.
Ivan enjoyed tinkering on vehicles, tending to his yard work, fishing, exploring, playing cribbage, building bird houses, watching birds and, deer and most of all, he enjoyed volunteering at the York Creek Lodge. He will be greatly missed but fondly remembered by all who knew him.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life include his companion, Donna Spring; his children, Donald, John, Valerie, Constance and Michelle; as well as his extended family and many friends.
He was predeceased by his son, Ronald Godin.
