Born In Sonora, Guys­bor­ough County, July 21, 1929, he was the son of the late

Elmer Ge­orge Jol­lota and Al­berta May (Shaw) Jol­lota. Be­sides his par­ents he was pre-de­ceased by his first wife, Joyce E.

Ivan was a hard­work­ing man through­out his life, hav­ing worked on fish­ing boats, serv­ing in the army, run­ning a gas sta­tion, work­ing at

Amherst Wood­work­ing and as a com­mis­sion­aire. Dad was an avid dart player win­ning many se­nior cham­pi­onship games. He loved the out­doors and fish­ing and hunt­ing were a favourite pas­time. He was very proud of the 60 year pin and red blan­ket that he re­cently re­ceived from the Le­gion.

To­gether with his first wife, they had eleven chil­dren. Dad will al­ways be re­mem­bered by his brother and sis­terin-law Brian and Vi­vian Jol­lota of Lyons Brook , his sis­ter-in-law Irene McLearn of Truro, daugh­ters, Linda Dob­son (Al­bert), Ruth Nick­er­son (Herb), Shirley Howlett (Roger), Dale Landry (David), Thelma Haynes (Thomas) and Nancy Comeau (Steven) and sons, Ti­mothy, and James (Deb­bie) Jol­lota.
