Robert Ivy

d. May 28, 2022

Robert V. Ivy was born June 12, 1949, in Detroit, Michigan.  He was drafted into the army (1967-1969) spending a year on duty in Vietnam which was a defining experience of his life.  He is very close to his son and all of his stepchildren: Son; Mark Karaptian (Julia) who resides in CA., Stepchildren: Shannon O’Brien (Al), Patrick O’Brien (Lisa), Colin O’Brien (Diana), and Kate O’Brien.  He is the beloved grandfather of Aaron, Amrit, Nathan, Bella, Nils, Conner, Stella, and Carlos and the great grandfather of Adeleine and Fynn.

Ivy and his stepson Patrick began the Salamander Company in 2000 building sustainable and beautifully crafted homes.  He retired in 2020 and he and Nakeesha planned on many years to travel and enjoy their rapidly growing family.  Ivy died of cancer on May 28, 2022.

Ivy is greatly missed by family and friends.  However, his legacy of kindness, generosity, and humor lives on in all who knew him.

The family of Robert V. Ivy has entrusted the care of their loved one to DeVargas Funeral Home of Taos. 1-866-657-4019
