David Henry Ivey, 75, of Pensacola, FL went home to be with our Lord and Savior on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. He was born August 11, 1944 to his parents, Leonard and Levada Ivey.

He went to Brownsville Elementary and Jr. High and graduated from Escambia High School in 1962. David later attended Pensacola Junior College.

Growing up, David loved baseball. It was one of his passions that started an early age. He began with playing youth baseball, and continued in high school, then in the minor league. After playing for many years, he enjoyed coaching youth baseball. Many knew him as “Coach”. David also enjoyed fishing, camping, golfing, and anything doing with baseball, but what he enjoyed the most was being with his family.

He had several jobs throughout the years, he entered the finance business in 1966. David also worked at Baptist and Sacred Heart Hospital in the 1980s, he then began working in the Assisted Living Industry as regional manager where he worked for 15 years. After retiring he worked part-time at Manheim Auto Auction. But the job he loved the most was the four years he worked for the Pensacola Blue Wahoo’s as an usher along first base line.

David joined the Kiwanis in the 1970’s, he was also a notary, and part of the chamber of commerce, and had been a deacon. He was a member of East Brent Baptist Church for 40 years.

He is preceded in death by both his parents, Leonard and Levada Ivey and brother, Jack Ivey.

David is survived by his wife of 55 years, Sharon Sheff Ivey; two sons, William David Ivey and Jeffery Thomas (Crystal) Ivey; four grandsons, Andrew Ivey, Preston Ivey, Matthew Ivey and Dakota Northrup; two granddaughters, Ashlyn Ivey and Camryn Ivey; great-grandbaby, Everly Ivey; nieces, nephews, and cousins; and many lifelong friends.

Visitation will be from 8:30 a.m. until funeral service begins at 9:30 a.m. at East Brent Baptist Church. Burial will be at Bayview Memorial Park.

I do want to bid fond goodbye to my "third" or 'bonus" brother, David. As I told Bill, David was one of the special blessings I enjoyed over the years thanks to him. For more than sixty years, we Carrs and Griffins too, benefitted from the love, patience and humor of "Henry". I can almost imagine Mom, Dad and Tom welcoming David to heaven with navy beans and cornbread. Then maybe David hit the clouds like he did my grandfather's floor long ago saying "we're up, Pop!" That's my silliness, but I'm sure God's welcome home is even better.
The four photos I tried to load were from a 2011 gathering at PHS. Maybe they were too big. I'll try to reduce them for facebook later. i wanted to find them before our online call. Sorry David, looks like I'm late again. We miss you already.

I worked for David when he ran a Shell Gas Station back in late 60's. I remember one time going to a park in Pensacola to throw and hit baseballs. A couple of high school students showed up and one had a catcher's mitt. David talked the student into letting him pitch some. That fellow was amazed at how hard David could pitch. I believe he went home with a sore hand after that session.
I truly enjoyed working with and getting to know David.

I am heartbroken by the death of my best friend in life, David Henry Ivey. He was such a true friend in every way. We shared so many wonderful experiences and he taught me so much about how to live life in the best possible way. I was honored to have him as a teammate in Little Boys Baseball in West Pensacola and later as best man at our wedding. Over the years, he was always there with wit and wisdom when I needed it most.

My love and appreciation go to his wonderful bride and life partner, Sharon, his two fine sons, Billy & Jeff along with their caring families. Their love, respect and loyalty to Henry were always clear in everything they did for and said to him and Sharon.

I am forever grateful for my time with David and look forward to seeing him again "In Glory".

David was a church friend as we spent our youths together at First Baptist Church Pensacola. He was always a positive, bright, thoughtful person, and I am thankful for his Christian influence in my life. When I saw him at a Forever Friends Fellowship of our church group in June of 2013, he seemed the same great, happy, guy! Praying for you, his family at this time of his Homecoming.
