Ted Phillip Ivansek Obituary

It is always difficult saying goodbye to someone we love and cherish. Family and friends must say goodbye to their beloved Ted Phillip Ivansek of Arcadia, Florida, who passed away on September 28, 2021, at the age of 65. Ted was born in Joliet, Illinois on February 5th, 1956. He is preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Virginia Ivansek and his brother, Terry Ivansek. He is survived by: his wife, Robin Ivansek; his brother, Thomas Ivansek (Robin); his children, Mark Ivansek (Jenny), Robert Hulett, Jr, Kyle Morley, April Morley; and his grandchildren, Madison, Arabella, Leah Ivansek and Lakyn, Brennan, and Seth Hulett.

Ted was an outdoorsman, who started out as a wanna-be farmer, who became a true rancher in his fifties. The ranch became his area of peace, and found relaxation mowing the pasture on the tractor. He loved the peace of nature and turned sitting around the campfire, telling stories and making s'mores into a family activity.

He was an animal lover at heart. Even when he encountered a calf at the ranch who was afraid, he would hold it close, pet its head, and said "It's okay, it will be alright."

There were many things he loved. In his youth, he loved hitchhiking across the country, taking adventures to destinations like Alaska, and finding many different ways to pull pranks on his favorite people. He was a free spirit and adventurer and was fascinated with the wild west, so he knew every Western ever made. He was a talented photographer for many years and an accomplished fashion model in his 20's and 30's. He had a fascination with trains, and playing guitar and singing with his brothers, Terry and Tom. He cherished his grandchildren and adored his dogs, Angel and Lexy.

His wife, Robin, was his lifelong love of the last 30 years. True to his heritage, he looked forward to the delicious food cooked by Robin, especially a well-cooked steak and anything Italian. She was "the one" and married her only three months after meeting her in 1991. When you know, you know! He adoringly called her "tweakie" because he thought she was as cute a tweety bird.

Ted cared about the community he lived in and consistently donated to support others in need. The family is grateful to the owners of Arcadia Village and the community for the opportunity to be a part of a family in the Village. It was a chance to be connected with hundreds of friends.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, October 2nd, 2021 at 10:30 AM at the Arcadia Village Country Club, 19th Hole Picnic Area (2692 Florida 70, Arcadia, Florida 34266).

Leave a sympathy message to the family on the memorial page of Ted Phillip Ivansek to pay them a last tribute.

“Heaven shines a little brighter whenever a believer in Jesus Christ enters its presence. My deepest sympathy to Robin & the entire Ivansek family. May God surround you with His everlasting love at this time of sorrow. I had good Christian fellowship with Ted. A real practical joker, loved camping together in the great Northwoods of WI & cowboy adventures out West. Ted will be missed. Willing rather to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord! 2 Cor. 5:8 A. Barry Hess”
