Our childhood together was so wonderful. The gang as John mentioned gives me today so many great childhood memories. Ivan always kept the fun exciting. From the baby racoon in the basement to the starting a nerf football on fire and kicking it around. We were all so close. Going to miss you and you will always be in my heart. Jerry I'm so sorry for your loss. Your family will always mean the world to me. Your friend, Brian Mroz

We were so saddened by the loss of not only Kelli but also of Ivan. They were a beautiful and loving couple who were dedicated to each other. They embodied what is good, caring and loving. An example of a cherished union who are once again united with each other in the Lord's home. May the Williams and Minkewicz family find comfort in the memories of these two beautiful people who will remain in our hearts until we meet again.
Love, Uncle John and Aunt Chris Scheuer

Dear Jerry and family,
I’m so sorry about the loss of our dear brother Ivan. He was kind, an amazing musician, and he loved my sister with all of his heart. You all are in my thoughts and prayers, always. Please accept my sincere condolences. God bless you all.

So sorry Jerry to hear about Ivan. I will always have great memories of growing up together and hanging out in the neighborhood from morning to when the street lights came on. Ivan, Brian, Frank, and I were inseparable playing every sport possible from football at Markel to street hockey at the Legion and baseball on brick road. I will never forget him and the great times we had. I was very happy that he found his soul mate in Kellie and very saddened to hear of her passing. God bless you my friend ! John Garcia
