Born in: Pulaski, Virginia
Resided in: Glasgow, KY

Billy Wayne Davis Sr, age 79, died on July 26, 2021 at NHC in Glasgow. He was born on October 3, 1941 in Pulaski, Virginia to Dennis and Lou Davis.
Billy proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corp from July 10, 1961 until July 9, 1965. He was a Radio Relay Operator, serving off the coast of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He received a good conduct medal and was a lifetime member of the VFW.
Billy was a carpenter and retired from the Corvette Plant in Bowling Green. Billy loved hunting, fishing, riding horses and wood working. He enjoyed being an “extra” in plays at the Barn Lot Theater. One of his favorite things was making homemade ice-cream at family gatherings. He was a member of the Refuge Church of Christ where he and Charlotte were active taking the senior members on many trips to various places. He spent several summers at Taylor Christian Camp with his church family. Billy was always up to something and liked to joke with everyone he was around. The short time he was a resident at NHC he made numerous friends with the staff as well as residents. His favorite person there was his roommate, Johnnie.
Preceded in death by his parents, he is survived by his brother, Mikell Davis, his loving wife of 58 years, Charlotte Dunnam Davis, his older son, Billy Wayne Davis, Jr., younger son, Boyd Heath Davis (Sandy), and his daughter, Heather Davis Clements (Larry).

Guestbook

  1. We were surprised to see Billy playing a part at Barn Lot years ago. Hadn’t seen him in so many years. Bill worked with him at Corvette. Sorry to see he passed away. Prayers to his family.

    Bill and Chris Lagermann

  2. We are sad to hear of Billy’s passing. Our prayers are with his family. Worked with him for many years at Corvette and shared riding to work. Good memories and lots of laughs. We even had laughs at NHC. He sure loved his family. Billy was a good man and friend.

  3. We mourn the loss of Billy, and we grieve with Charlotte, Buck, Boyd, and Heather. We admired Billy’s decades-long, loving relationship with Charlotte throughout life’s ups and downs. His servant’s heart was consistent and generous – always willing to lend a hand or to teach. He was welcoming with his ready smile, charismatic storytelling style, and sense of humor. We recall one experience when Billy tried (for the first time?) cross-country skiing with two of his brothers-in-law. As the story goes, the threesome initially took a beginner’s route, but opted for the “difficult” route on their return. Billy was determined to remain upright on one specific downhill. He repeated the downhill effort time and again until he could master it with many falls and laughter along the way! Billy’s remarkable and contagious laugh will resonate in our memories for years to come, as will his character and personality.
    With our deepest sympathy and love, Sherman and Mary.

  4. I am so thankful that I got to know Billy while he was at NHC. He was such a kind man and thought so much of his family. He would speak of them often and always with a smile. Prayers for his sweet family.

  5. Although I didn’t know Mr Billy, I served with his son Bo in the Corps. He had to be a great man because he raised a great man. Semper Fidelis Billy!

  6. Charlotte and Family
    Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you in your time sorrow. We thought alot of Billy and the girls loved him.

  7. So sorry for your loss Heather. Thinking of you and Larry during this time. Prayers for you and your family.
