Adam was the son of Robert Adams Ivy, Jr. and Holly Hall Ivy of Washington, D.C. and Columbus. His grandparents were the late Robert Adams Ivy and Frances Ledyard Ivy of Columbus and the late Dr. Stanley Cheney Hall and Virginia Wilkinson Hall of Brooklyn, NY.
He was born in New Orleans, LA on December 30, 1974 and moved with his parents to Columbus in 1980. He attended the Columbus City Schools, Heritage Academy and Mississippi State University. An independent contractor, he specialized in the installation and testing of broadband internet services across the United States.
In 2001 he married Sara Hoffman Scroggins. They are the parents of one son, Henry Moss Ivy of Athens, GA.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his sister Virginia Edmunds Ivy of Mountain View, AR and his brother Benjamin Ledyard Ivy of McLean, VA.
He followed the family tradition of appreciating and exploring the out-of-doors through hunting, fishing and hiking throughout the South. His friends knew him as a sympathetic, gentle man.
Adam was a painter – talented in oils and acrylics – and a guitarist, beginning with a band he formed with Columbus friends as a teenager. In both fields, he often focused on Mississippi scenes and themes. His skill in woodworking and other handicrafts produced many items of value for his son and his family.
Pallbearers will be I.V. Gunter, Ben Ivy, John Jernigan, Marsh Nabors, Jamie Snapp and Bryant Worley.
