Ivan Krstic Obituary

April 17th, 1968 – December 3rd, 2015

Ivan was tragically taken away from us the night of December 3rd.  Ivan was born on April 17th, 1968 in Racine, Wisconsin. His family relocated to Mesa, AZ. when Ivan was three years old. He graduated from Mountain View High school and attended MCC, ASU & NAU. He was born into a hard working family who had immigrated to the States from Serbia seeking to realize the American dream. His family worked hard in establishing their restaurant business, where Ivan began working as a young teenager. In the years to follow the family built Mesa East Bowl. Ivan worked alongside his family in operating the bowling center.

Ivan married his wife Sanja in 2003, and was blessed with two beautiful children, Tommy and Marija. He also leaves behind his parents Tom and Nada, sister Branka, brother-in-law Daki Andjelkovic, nephew Daniel, niece Victoria, countless aunts, uncles and cousins, kumovi and friends.

Visitation will take place at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church, 4436 E. McKinley St, Phoenix, on Friday, December 11 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm with a Pomen (memorial) service at 7:00pm.  The funeral service will also be held at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church on Saturday, December 12 at 10:00am.  Following the funeral service there will be a procession to Mountain View Cemetery, 7900 E. Main St., Mesa for a graveside service.  A Daca (mercy meal) will follow the graveside service at St. Sava’s Social Hall.

Ivan’s kindness and generosity knew no bounds and he will be greatly missed by any and all who knew him. May his memory be eternal!

    I did not know Ivan personally, but my daughter went to school with him. She was very upset upon hearing of his passing and know how much he will be missed. He was a good man and gone way too soon. Our condolences to Ivan’s family.

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss and the life of a friend from so long ago. I pray his kids will not have fear or pain forever and i pray in JESUS name that they will be healthy and love so much forever. I would like them to know that JESUS died for them and all the sin and diseases in the world and that HE is the only way to heaven. I know there is so much pain in this world but I also know that only JESUS can give you the only peace and comfort that can heal a broken heart, i pray this for everyone grieving and all the love ones who loved him so much!! I am so sorry for your loss.
