Rodney Clark Ivie

Rodney Clark “Rod” Ivie, 80, passed away peacefully July 22, 2015 at the Millard Care & Rehabilitation Center in Delta, UT due to natural causes.

He leaves behind his wife of 59 years, Bonnie Jean (Largent) Ivie; his children: Kathy Ivie, Darwin Ivie, Debra Smith (Jeff), and Troy Ivie; his sister: Sharon Bishop (Garn): eight grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents: Clark and Lillian Ivie; his brothers: Joe, Louis and Eddie; and his sister: Sharlene.

Rod was born on August 16, 1934 in Delta, Utah, the oldest of six children. Rod attended school in Delta while helping maintain the family farm in Sugarville. After graduation, he joined the U.S. Army and served for two years. He received an Honorable Discharge in October 1955. Rod met his sweetheart Bonnie Jean Largent on a blind date arranged by his brother Louis, and they married on June 15, 1956 in the Salt Lake Temple. He graduated from Barber College before moving back to Delta where he continued as a barber until June 2013.

Whenever you asked Rod how he was doing, his reply was always “Excellent”. Rod was an active member of the LDS Church and loved to perform missionary work. Rod was also an active member of The American Legion, holding the office of District Commander for nine years. He received the Delta Chamber of Commerce Area Giant Award, which recognizes its members for their long tenure and dedication to the community. Rod and Bonnie also received the 1994 Ninth Annual Southwestern Transition Conference Outstanding Parent Award.

Rod had a passion for animals and raised livestock his entire life. He especially loved horses and enjoyed being involved in rodeo competitions for him and his family. He also loved his canine companions, his most recent being “Kipper”. He loved spending time in the outdoors with his family, including hunting, hiking, camping, and motor sports. Rod loved and was an avid supporter of Delta High School Athletics, providing free haircuts to the athletes.

Funeral Services will be held on Monday, July 27, at 11:00 AM at the Delta LDS Stake Center, 125 White Sage Avenue. Viewings will be held at the Delta LDS Stake Center on Sunday evening, 6:30-8:30 PM; and Monday morning, 9:30-10:40 AM, prior to the service. Burial will be in the Delta City Cemetery.
