Ivory was a member at Christ First Missionary Baptist Church where he sang in the True Gospel Singers men chorus and he also sang in the church choir. He also attended Word Christian Fellowship Church and loved playing his guitar with them. He also loved playing his guitar in a solo act performance in the local Black History Talent Show. He enjoyed driving and collecting collectible cars, riding his motorcycle, and being an artist. He had many accomplishments throughout his life, none more important than his two sons, Ezra Earl Wallace and Kazell Maurice Wallace, and his grandson, Isaiah Wallace who he raised.
