Eric Darnell Ivy, affectionately known as “Ricky,” was born July 29, 1957, in St. Louis, Missouri, to Elder Hubert and Katherine Ivy. He was the fourth of eight children born to this union. He was preceded in death by both parents, and his sister, Sandra Renee Ward. Eric was educated in the Madison Public School District, where he graduated from Madison Senior High in 1975. He was a dedicated employee for Dobbs International Catering Service, Countrywide Assets & Auto Recovery, Inc., and Lyft.
He confessed his faith in Christ at an early age and was baptized in the name of Jesus at the Lively Stone Church of God under the leadership of the late Bishop P.L. Scott.
Eric met his wife, Robbie Gail Dotson, at Pentecostal Power Church. The two enjoyed attending Lively Stone Church Radio Broadcast every Sunday evening. They were united in Holy Matrimony on May 1, 1982. Eric and Robbie were blessed to celebrate thirty-eight years of marriage before Robbie preceded him in death on March 31, 2020.
He shared a tight bond with his brothers and sister. He looked forward to attending the brother’s monthly breakfast fellowships, reminiscing about the good old days. In his spare time, he loved traveling, fishing, attending model train shows, and playing basketball with his brothers. Every year, he looked forward to attending the Ivy’s Family Reunion and firework show in Oxford, Mississippi.
Eric was loved by all and leaves to cherish his memories: six siblings, brothers, Anthony (Shantel) Ivy, Hubert (Angela) Ivy, Sr., Marcus (Francine) Ivy, Prentice (Denise) Ivy, Sr., all of St. Louis, MO, and Malcom (Michelle) Ivy, Sr., of Chicago, IL and sister, Katrina (Abdoulie) Ivy-Suma; brothers-in-law, Randy Dotson and Durand Dotson; sisters-in-law, Ladonna Dotson and Evelyn Dotson; godsisters, Lorraine Binion and Nikki Marie Turner; godbrother, Bobby Nelson; godson, Malcom O. Ivy, II; and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
