Walter Kenneth Ivey, Jr.

February 22, 1955 ~ April 7, 2015 (age 60)


HIGH POINT – Walter Kenneth Ivey Jr., 60, went Home to be with his Savior on April 7, 2015, at Hospice House of High Point. He was the son of Walter Kenneth Ivey Sr.(deceased) and Ruth Ivey of Greensboro. He is also survived by sisters Cheryl Waynick, Ginny McMasters (Kevin), Carol Ivey, and Lisa Ivey, all of Greensboro.

He worked in communications in Florida for many years, but throughout his life he truly was a jack-of-all trades. He owned a mechanic shop, a paint company, was a truck driver and a locksmith. Whatever the job he was a hard-working man, dedicated to the task at hand. He had a great love for the outdoors, horses, and Harleys. He was a man who never met a stranger and was always willing to do for others anything he could do to help out. He was a loyal and dedicated friend and father.

He was greeted in Heaven by his son, Walter "Ken" Ivey Jr., who preceded him in death and he leaves behind daughter Julie Jeffries (Tommy) of Greensboro, Daniel Keith Ivey of Virginia, and Blade Ivey of Florida. Also surviving, grandchildren that he loved dearly, Summer (Jordan), Hannah, Blaine, Theo, Sarah, his "Mouse" Shelby, Kaiden, Michael, and Seth. He was also preceded in death by his baby granddaughter Amber Alexis. One of his brightest lights in his last days came from his best little buddy and great-grandson Taylor. Each of these grand (and great grand) children were dearly loved by their Pawpaw more than words can express.

The family would like to say a special thank you to Hospice nurses Ann, Jackie, and Becky, chaplins Steve and Randy, and volunteer Jim. A big thank you as well to Brother-in-Christ Dennis who was a dedicated visitor and friend. He lived a life like not many, and while he may have taken some alternate paths, in the end of his journey his path was set directly for Heaven. He knew he was saved, forgiven, and Heaven-bound and he was truly ready to go Home. His smile, his laughter, and his stories will be deeply missed but we know we will see him again one sweet day.A celebration of his life will be held at his home at 3006 Glass Road in Greensboro on Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 6-8pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice Home of High Point, 1803 Westchester Rd, Greensboro, NC 27262, where he was treated with great care and dignity.
