Obituary for Kenneth Basil Davis

Kenneth B. Davis, passed away at his home, Wednesday April 18, 2018. He was born December 25, 1928 to Leroy and Charlotte (Reuter) Davis in Pomeroy, Ohio.

The family moved to the Oakland County area in 1939. He married his beloved wife, Mary (nee Jackson) on August 13, 1948. A decision he often stated was the best decision of his life. Ken and Mary moved to Lapeer in 1977. Ken was a retired supervisor from the Pontiac Motor Division, having worked there for 31 years. He was an avid fisherman and deer hunter. His self-guided hunts in northern Ontario resulted in several successful moose, with one of the bulls having a 63in rack. He loved caring for his fruit trees, extensive garden, a few farm animals and he took pride in his large mowed lawn. In the later years after moving to Lapeer, Ken and Mary divided their time between their homes in Naples, FL and Lapeer. Wherever Ken lived, he took an active part in his church, serving as a Trustee, Elder, Teacher, Greeter and delivering Christmas baskets at holiday times. He and Mary are members of the First Presbyterian Church in Lapeer. He volunteered many hours to the American Red Cross Blood Drives in the local area and was a patient advocate at the mental facility in Lapeer.
