Murray Davis MORTON-Church service for Murray Davis, 51, of Maple is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2, at First Baptist Church, Morton, with Rick Lawrence of Levelland and Bill Dickson of Hawley, Texas, officiating. Burial will be in Bethel Cemetery in Anson, Texas, at 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 3, 2012, under the direction of Ellis Funeral Home, Morton. Mr. Murray died Aug. 29, 2012, in Maple. He was born June 17, 1961, to Vonay and Sue (Sorenson) Davis in Haskell, Texas. Murray accepted Christ as his savior when he was 16 years old, and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Hawley, Texas. He bought his first combine when he was 11 years old, and this was the beginning of his passion for agriculture. He moved to the Maple community in 1983, and became known for his black hat, his tall boots, and his handle bar moustache. He was respected and loved in the area that became his home. He was a kind and generous man, helping out everywhere he could, assisting his neighbors and friends during their hardships, and going the extra mile helping fellow farmers with any farming needs. He was a board member for the Three Way School, and also a board member for the Maple Co-Op Gin. He created his hobbies around his families, including stock showing, sports, and hunting. He was a steward of the land, and an avid cattleman. He is survived by parents, Vonay and Sue Davis of Fort Phantom Lake, Texas; two sons, Kasey Davis and wife Karen of Lubbock, and Rowdy Davis of Levelland; two daughters, Tiffany Davis of Lubbock and Misty Davis of Whiteface; one sister, Kristi Allyn and husband Eddy of Tuscola, Texas; a brother, Nicky Davis and wife Darla of Abilene; and one grandchild, Karter James Davis. Memorials may be made to Recovery Roadhouse; , Lubbock, TX 79424; or MDA.
