Tim was born in Columbia, SC on May 28, 1938 to the late Pearl and William W. Davis. He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Ruby Davis; daughter, Tammy Raines (Jason); son, Kevin Davis (Katie); grandson, Joshua Raines; granddaughters, Sydney, Hannah, and Madilyn Davis; and sisters, Joyce Jones (Jim) and Marsha Keisler. He was predeceased by his brothers, Charles and Steve Davis.
Tim had many roles in his life. He was a painter for the State Hospital, employed by Bagnal Builders for nearly 20 years, and a member of Woodmen of the World Fraternal Order, but his all-time favorite roles took place at home. Tim would have captured the moon for Ruby. He loved his children more than anything, and worked hard his whole life to provide for his family. When his grandchildren were born, he proudly became “Papa.” He would teasingly pretend he was going to take candy or food from the kids, and when they would shake their heads in disapproval, he would act so surprised and silly. His grandkids loved laughing with him as much as he loved putting a smile on their faces.
Although we are all heartbroken by the loss of Tim, we leave you with a quote from one of Tim’s favorite cowboys, Roy Rogers:
“Until we meet again, may the good Lord take a liking to you.”To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Tim Davis, please visit our Tree Store
