Ivan Davis Sr . was born on February 13, 1971 in Valdosta, Georgia to Irvin Davis Sr. and the late Jimmie Lee Joyce Davis. He attended Valdosta High School, where he dominated the basketball court. Many called him “Cheese” because he had a smile that would light up the room. He was in Phi Beta Gamma Fraternity. He graduated High school in 1989, got married and had his first daughter. Ivan began working with the Valdosta Housing Authority, where he dedicated 7 years of service to his community. He then went on to pursue a truck driving career but unfortunately had to give up his dream due to sudden health concerns. Ivan decided to fully focus on maintaining his health and being an active father and grandfather to those who loved him most. He was an extreme family man and was never afraid to fire up the grill to get the party started.
He is preceded in death by his mother; Jimmie Lee Joyce Davis.
