Our growing up in Valla was only a brief moment in our lives but my occasional contact with Ivor have left a great impression on myself and my family as he stood out in the crowd. He was so willing to please and be a generally nice bloke to all who came by his path. His childhood dream before entering school became a reality which touched many people. His love of family was obviously realised with his wife and adorable children. My condolences go out to them at this time and to his brothers and sisters. God Bless all at this time. Graham Wadd

No one could ever ask for a better Instructor - Patient, caring, knowledgable, selfless, intuitive, cool, calm and collected. I don't think anyone could find any more of a Man - devoted family man, tender, kind, gentle, selfless and desiring the best for his students, the industry and his family. How often can you find a friend, a family man and a legend in one man? Most of us fail at being anything to anyone. Brother Ivor, you are an inspiration - a reminder that we can all be so much better - more patient, less angry and more loving. I will forever remember the flight lessons, the lunches, coffees and chats. A hope there is a time when I get to meet you again, shake your hand and give you a hug - It is for this moment and all the future ones with your family that I hope there is an afterlife. Until that time and beyond I hope your family finds all of the love you bestowed on us. May there only be peace, connectivity and love where you are. So proud to have met you and been able to call you my Instructor, inspiration and above all, Mate. See you about Ivor Edwin Durham - blue skies and smooth sailing to you all. Wayne Jean.
