Mr. Davis was born on Oct. 23, 1927, in rural Effingham, the son of Charles E. and Mary (Perring) Davis, the fifth of sixth children.
He grew up on a farm six miles west of Effingham and attended Defiance School, a one-room schoolhouse with eight grades. After graduating from Effingham High School in 1945, he joined the U.S. Army, serving at Ft. Knox and in the Phillipines. Following his honorable discharge in May 1947, he returned home to farm and successfully farmed his family's farm until his retirement in 1986. In 2004, he moved to Vandalia. Warren was a lifelong member of Miller Chapel.
He loved God, his family, his country and his farm deeply. He was a wonderful son, brother and uncle. We know he has gone home to be with the Lord, but he will be greatly missed.

Mitchell, Ky.; nieces, Pamela Davis of Lakewood, Colo., Cindy Brown Harding and her husband Steve of North Richland Hills, Texas, Lisa Davis Lipe and her husband Mike of Clarksville, Tenn., and Sheila Davis of Clarksville, Tenn.; five great-nephews; three great-nieces; and five great-great-nieces.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Kenneth and Philip Davis; sister, Mildred Hall; half sister, Mamie Parks and her husband Fred; brothers-in-law, W. David Brown and Ray Hall; and niece, Beth Brown Gilliland.
