Mr. Davis was a simple man. He loved God, Country, and family. He believed all you needed in life to be happy was to be loved and cherished. He was a caring man who befriended anyone and would help them. He liked to work with the Earth with his hands. He adored the beauty of animals and flowers and enjoyed sitting in the sun to feel God’s touch on your skin. He is at peace and smiling now because he is home at a reunion in Heaven with his parents, siblings, and other family members.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife, Mary; sons, Cecil Davis, Jr., and George William Davis; and a grandson, Dolan Vinson Smith.
Surviving relatives include his children, Mary Rebecca Smith (Dolan), Cindy Kay Davis, Jenny Annette Gubbins (Jeffrey), Jefferson Lee Davis (Christina); daughters-in-laws, June Davis and Myrtle Davis; one sister, Betty Jo Busing; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren, as well as other special family members and friends.
