The Ivan Bar is named after my father- and the middle names of
my brother Derek and nephew Darius. Like my dad it's simple,
but powerful. I watched this man go to work ever day, never calling
in sick, working towards his goal of a better life for his kids, The 6
of us lived and grew up in Bedford Stuyvesant on Halsey Street.
I didn't realize until later on in life the characteristics and work ethic
I picked up from my father.
Ivan worked hard and returned to Barbados with my mother once
he retired. He took care of my mother until she passed a couple of
years ago and is now in his early 90's
WORK ETHIC - DETERMINATION - FOCUS Getting the job done, that's Ivan.
