Ike loved his family, playing and watching sports, gardening and sharing stories of his family historical significance. He was an innovative and respected principal and administrator at Avon Middle School. He coached football at Avon High School, as well as many of his kids’ teams over the years. He will be missed for his dry, but powerful sense of humor, his few but impactful words, and his love for his wife and family.
The family extends a heartfelt thank you to Brookdale Elizabeth City and Community Hospice Care for the extraordinary care and consideration given to Ike.
