    My very good friend will be never forgotten.

  2. Kim Harrington says:

    I’m so sorry to hear of Igor’s passing. Igor was my first cube neighbor at CheckFree/Fiserv. I loved teasing and aggravating him to make him smile. Ironically it was when I made a post-it note sign for his cube that said, “Do Not Disturb’ that brought the biggest smile. I was honored to see that post-it note on each of his cubes during our many cube moves with the company. I hope you’re resting in peace in Heaven, Igor, and no one is disturbing you. I’d make you a sign if I could. 😉

  3. COLIN MACKENZIE says:

    this is very sad to hear. I used to “mess” with Igor just to see his reaction. He used to have these colored pins on his board. they are always pinning thing up by color. I one time moved all the pins so the colors were scattered. He some to work and know something is wrong in his cube he sits and sits then suddenly he “sees” it. His reaction was priceless. RIP Brother.

  4. Michael Johnson says:

    Very sad to hear this. He was a great colleague and lunch mate at CheckFree. We had so many laughs together, during a time I was trying to make a transition from a different company, and I always looked forward to him joining.
    I was just thinking of him the other day, when my daughter was asking about some of the things I missed, after I retired. Way too young. My condolences to the family.

  5. Richard Dooley says:

    I am deeply saddened by Igor’s passing.My heart and prayers go out to all of those who knew him. He was a unique and special person. I met him at Checkfree, where he showed me how to pay attention to detail (massive understatement).. I worked closely with him and had lunch every day with the team…. Great Times with Igor.!!!

  6. Ray Crepeau says:

    Igor was a neighbor that I unfortunately did not get to know as well as I would have liked.
    He always had a smile as I drove past his yard while he was manicuring his lawn. It was the best in the neighborhood.

  7. Authon West says:

    Igor was a neighbour of mine that I new faily well, and I regarded him as a friend. Our first formal encounter was at our HOA meeting several years ago. What I admired most about him was his meticulous attention to detail in everything he pursued. You will be dearly missed.

  8. Robin Washington says:

    Igor…it’s taken some time for me to find the words. Your death hit different. Different because it punctuated the saying “life is fleeting.” Different because it made me even more acutely aware of my own mortality. Who would have thought in the year 2000, two young families: 1 with one son, 1 with twin girls moving into a brand new neighborhood in East Cobb both families filled with the excitement and possibilities of raising our families would still be connected 20-plus-years later. We couldn’t have been more different. You sharing German traditions and me explaining to you “black mamas don’t cook on Friday’s.” The many parties both planned and impromptu in the cul-de-sac, the countless times our families rang in the new year together, and the many hot summer days of swim team meets helped us cultivate a village. As the years went by and families moved in and out, we rightfully took our place as OG’s of the “de-sac.” And although you would later move nearby, you were and will always be considered a cul-de-sac OG. I will forever be changed from knowing you. I’m grateful for the time we had this past December….laughing, eating, drinking, and sharing upcoming plans. Today as we celebrate your life, I will remind everyone that you and I were correct…the shortest distance is a straight line..so you turn right out of the subdivision to go to Publix. Rest easy Igor. We got Anja, Katja and Lara.
