He attended Tarrant County Junior College where he received an Associate Degree in History. In 1957, Ivy began military service for his country in the United States Air Force until 1961.

He retired to Lake Palo Pinto in 2002 where he lived the remainder of his life with his wife, Linda. On July 12, 1978, Ivy married his beloved wife, Linda Thweatt McMillan and created a new, blended family whom he cherished greatly. Ivy was known for his love of God, family, and fishing. He had a humorous and outgoing personality that never allowed him to meet a stranger. He was considered by many as a prayer warrior who shared his love of Christ with everyone he met.
