Ivo was born in Abruzzo, Italy on May 23, 1916. At age 12 he immigrated to the United States and later served in the Army during WWII, earning an honorable discharge. Subsequently, he studied and became a master tailor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In the early years of his profession he displayed his craftmanship in the front windows of respected tailor shops on Walnut Street and later practiced designing men's suits for which he received high recognition. Subsequently, his interest turned to the production of men's formal wear, which eventually elevated him to executive positions in some of the well known ready-made men's suits manufacturing companies on the East Coast.

A private memorial service will be held in celebration of his life.
