Lifting Burden for Ivan's Loved Ones

Donation protected
When a mother loses her child, most of her is lost...

On February 7th 2020, Ivan Johnson's life was cut tragically short at the age of 17. This sudden and unforeseen event has left his friends and family stricken with grief.

Ivan was a young man who enjoyed life to the fullest and with the vigorous tenacity of love. He was an active member in his congregation of 15 years and offered his musical talents playing the organ for 9 years.  Playing the role of many faces, Ivan took pleasure in dedicating his time to being the big brother, the best friend, the inspiration and the SMILE to all. 

If you knew Ivan, you can attest to his generosity and abundant empathy towards others. In these trying times, we are asking the community to come together to help lift the financial burden of Ivan's final arrangements from his parents and young siblings, to allow them to focus their energies on mourning and planning for Ivan's celebration of life. 

We are not yet sure of the total cost of the arrangements, but the family will be forever grateful for any contributions towards Ivan's final resting place. If you are unable to contribute, please consider taking a moment of your time to share with your friends and family via social media.

Update: Ivan's mother, Camisha Denny is the beneficiary of the donated funds. These donations will be used to cover the costs of the Funeral and Wake on Friday February 21st and Saturday February 22nd in Tampa Florida. I have been authorized to deliver the funds to Camisha outside of GoFundMe.
