Ivie Danzey, Jr, was born on June 14, 1935 to the late Millard Danzey and the late Ossie Lee in Abbeville, Alabama.
He attended schools in Abbeville and Halesburg, Alabama. He moved to Haines City, Florida, and later moved to Newark, New Jersey and stayed there until he retired.
He then moved back to his hometown, Halesburg. Ivie became a born-again Christian in 1960. He was a great auto/diesel mechanic alongside his brothers. During his retirement years, Ivie continued to work hard and gave from his resources to others. He was also called the “watermelon man” giving to those he knew and didn’t know. Ivie didn’t have any children but he had the spirit of a father to so many.
Ivie was predeceased by his parents Millard and Ossie Danzey, and seven siblings, Herman, Earl, Robbie, Harry, Jeremiah, Sally and Frank Danzey’s.
It is with great sadness that the family of Ivie “June” Danzey announces his passing after brief illness on June 30, 2020, at the age of 85 years.
Ivie will be loving missed by his devoted wife: Annie Byrd Danzey; his sweet sisters: Ruby Lee Tharpe, Mary Alene Danzey and Martha Maelene Danzey Johnson. Ivie will also be fondly missed by a host of “wonderfully blessed” nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. And he will also be especially remembered by his good friends and co-workers in Newark, New Jersey.
Rest in peace from all of us who will never forget you. In Jesus Name.
