I worked with ivan for about 2 years at Infoblox. Ivan had no attitude albeit he was the founder and was easy with everyone. My deepest condolences to his wife and family
Ivan was a unique and wonderful soul. We knew him as a young child and friend of our children. His lively and tenacious spirit will live on. We are glad we knew him. Our hearts go out to his parents, Sasha and his wife.
Chris, John and Sasha, I'm so sorry about this. I have not known Ivan in his adult life, of course, but I've heard said he was a warm, loving, friendly, and brilliant guy. He made a real run at life, and that effort, more than its length, must certainly be the measure of the man. May your fondest memories of him, and his radiant smile, be with you always. All best wishes to you at this incredibly difficult time, and always after.
I was classmates with Ivan back at Our School. I haven't seen him an ages and ages, but am so sad to hear about his passing. The thing I remember most about Ivan is his smile!
Dear Pulleyn Family I read of your loss, and would like to offer my condolences. A few days ago, I lost a member of my family unexpectedly, and I understand the grief and sorrow that you and your family are feeling at this time. Although words cannot fill the emptiness of your loss, I would like to share the promise stated at John 5:28,29. " All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice, and come out to a resurrection of life.." May I assure you, I am not trying to give or change your religion. The pain of loss is felt, regardless of religion. May you be strengthened and comforted by friends and family through this VERY DIFFICULT time.
Ruth and Marian join me in offering our condolences to Ivan's family and friends. What a wonderful picture!
