A proud member of the Edinburg Volunteer Fire Department, he had more than six decades of service. He worked for local companies and government departments in the area for many years. After his retirement, he particularly enjoyed the company of the Liars' Club at Bo's Shell Station on Stoney Creek Blvd.

The son of Walter B. Davis and Arline Allen Davis, Nick is survived by his sister, Jean Allen Davis; his brother, William S. Davis Sr.; his nephew, William S. Davis Jr., and his niece, Elizabeth B. Davis Wright and her husband, Thomas A. Wright, and their children, Anne L. Wright and Kyle T. Wright.
