Michael Ivancich, 75, peacefully passed away Monday, July 30, at his White Sulphur Springs, NY home with his family by his side. 
Mike was born September 14, 1942, in Hoboken NJ to Marco and Florence Ivancich. 
He graduated from St. Luke’s High School in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ in 1960. Right after he attended University of Dayton, Ohio and graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1973 from Teaneck NJ, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry.

He had the opportunity to make his life’s passion of science his career. He loved playing golf with Harvey, trout fishing, finishing puzzles, and watching classic black and white movies. He spoke his own language called sarcasm. He found the perfect martini from the White Sulphur Inn and worlds best calamari from Ciao Bella. 
A very special thank you to the people at Sullivan County Hospice for their loving care and support during his final days.
