elevated STmyq Obituary
With profound sadness, the family of Ivan Orbanic announce his sudden death on November 3, 2023. Beloved husband, father and Nono, Ivan will be missed by family and friends in Istria and England.

elevated STmyq Born in 1937, Ivan emigrated from the former Yugoslavia to Canada in 1960, settling first in Montreal and later in Toronto where he met and married Jennifer Bamforth, welcomed son Martin and daughter Emma-Jane, and, eventually, grandsons Luca, Jack, Jace and Benjamin.

elevated STmyq Father-in-law to Jennifer Posthumus and Urbano Ciccarelli, step-Nono to Paige and Nicholas. Ivan is survived by his brother Germano and sister Milka in Istria. What a blessing that he visited them and their families just last month. Dog-father to Max and Charlie, beloved friend, neighbour and local Mr. Fix-It, Ivan was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand in exchange for a coffee spiked with rum or rakija.
