William, or Bill as he was known to most, was born on April 15, 1947, in Birmingham, Alabama, to the late James and Jessie Ivie. Dedicated to his country, Bill was a Vietnam Veteran honorably serving with the United States Army.
Bill could best be described as a giver, always willing to go the extra mile (or run the 100th errand) for anyone around him, and he lived out his faith through the love he extended to others. Bill was known to help anyone in need and never hesitated to share all that he had. The Lord was the strength of Bill’s life, and no matter what he was going through or how he felt, he was always “doing great.” Gratitude and joy defined him.
Bill’s best moments were those spent with family. For almost 56 years he was married to the love of his life, Judy.
He enjoyed golfing with his son, Ed, and boating with Jorge. Movie nights with Amanda and birthday outings with Angela. All his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will remember him as the one and only PawPaw.
He is survived by his loving wife, Judy Kay Ivie; daughter, Angela Diaz and husband Jorge of Morehead City; son, William Edward Ivie Jr. and wife Christine of Dallas, Texas; brother, James Ivie and wife Diane of Atlanta, Georgia; grandchildren, Brandon Diaz and wife Kaylee, Bryce Ivie and wife Claudia, Amanda Kay Diaz, and Brooke Lawrence and husband Bryce; great-grandchildren, Raiden Diaz, Mallory Diaz, Ella Ivie, Revie Lawrence and Ryker Lawrence; and honorary great-grandchildren, Paityn and Wells Miller.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Janice Sue Ivie; brother, Ed Ivie; and great-grandchildren, Oliver Ivan Diaz and Dray James Lawrence.
As an expression of sympathy, flowers are welcome.
