Desa IvorDESA, Ivor - It is with great sadness, and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Ivor Desa as he was completing his 60th year. He passed away in his home in Erin, ON, on Saturday, February 2nd, 2019.

Ivor will be truly missed by his loving daughters Danielle and Suzanne, and their mother Shalini. He was a cherished son to Raul and Violet and a dear brother to Keith, Jennifer, and Christina.

He was a devoted millwright for the Region of Halton for over 20 years. In his spare time, Ivor enjoyed exploring and caring for his Rockwood property, canoeing, sailing, and spending time with his beloved dogs.

He will be fondly remembered for his great sense of humour and his kind and giving nature. If anyone ever needed a helping hand, Ivor was the first to offer his help.
