Joseph “Dave” Davis, 70, of Kingsland, passed away June 21, 2018 at his residence.
Dave was born December 20, 1947 in Memphis, TN, and was the son of the late James Preston Davis and the late Dalmer Whaley Davis. He was also preceded in death by his wife of 31 years, Shirley Fitzpatrick Davis.
Whether you knew Dave from the military, from his civil service years or from around town, you knew a true friend. No matter where he went, he took the time to get to know the people around him. He often had a pocket full of mints and would leave handfuls with those he interacted with. No matter how you knew Dave, he never failed to make your life a little sweeter. Dave was retired from the United States Navy, serving his country honorably during Vietnam.
Survivors include his daughter and son in law, Jennifer and Mark Russo; grandchildren, Samantha Renee Russo, Rebecka Morgan Russo, Evelyn Elizabeth Russo, and Jonathan Reuben Russo, and many friends and loved ones.
The family requests memorial contributions in memory of Dave, be made to Georgia Hospice.
Private family services will be held at a later date.
Allison Memorial Chapel and Funeral Home of St. Marys is in charge of arrangements.
