He is preceded in death by his mother, Anne Louise Richbourg Davis; father, James Malachi Davis; brothers, Jimmy Davis and Tony Davis; and sisters, Carol Davis and Gretchen Baker.
He was born November 2, 1943 in Savannah, Georgia. He lived a cherished boyhood in the Silk Hope Community in Chatham County, attended Berry College in Rome, Georgia, where he won the welterweight Georgia Golden Gloves title. He received his BS from GSU and his masters and ED.S degrees from Valdosta State. He served in the U.S. Air Force and retired from the US Army National Guard. He worked as a teacher in Bainbridge, Georgia; as a social worker in Apalachicola, Fla.; and as the Director of Wayne Skills in Waynesboro, Tennessee, where he helped organize and served on the board of the Tennessee Recyclers Organization.
He and his family returned to Georgia and lived in Darien, while Mr. Davis worked for the McIntosh County Board of Education. Upon retirement, Davis taught at the McIntosh County Adult Education Center. Out of all things he undertook in his life, it was as a teacher that he found his purpose in life. He truly loved his students and community.
Mr. Davis loved his life, family and friends. As per his wishes, in lieu of a funeral, a gathering will be held Saturday, October 29, 2016, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Davis home (ph. 832-4402) on McCoy Creek to celebrate his life with memories, laughter, and good food (no alcohol, please).
