Born June 13, 1927, in Scranton, son of the late Hosie and Mildred Evans Davis of Scranton and Elmhurst, Bob was a graduate of Scranton Technical High School and worked for U.S. Textile and Protection Services Inc. of Scranton before retiring in 1993.
Bob was loved deeply by his family and many friends. He was quick-witted and his joking manner always brought a smile to your face. He loved to play harmonica, sing and tell jokes. He was a skilled carpenter, and one of his hobbies was making intricate wood projects. He loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren dearly, and always mentioned them in conversation.
The family would like to thank the fifth-floor skilled nursing unit, "Spirit of Mercy," for their loving care and compassion.
Surviving are two sons, Robert and wife, Donna, Rowlett, Texas; and Ronald, Spring Brook Twp.; grandchildren, Tonya Lewis and Jennifer Pritchard, Rowlett; Shannon and Tiffany Davis, Spring Brook Twp.; and Michelle Griffith, Equinunk; many great-grandchildren; brothers, Willard Davis and wife, Janice, Owego, N.Y.; the Rev. Arthur W. Davis, Mount Cobb; and Donald Davis, Sterling; sisters, Romaine Ray, Scranton; and Marion Bird and husband, Emmett, Elmhurst; nieces and nephews.
A private service for immediate family will be Tuesday at Asbury United Methodist Church in Scranton, by the Rev. Arthur W. Davis, his brother.
A celebration of life service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are by the Duffy & Snowdon Funeral Home, 401 Church St., Moscow. Memorial contributions may be made to Asbury United Methodist Church, Monsey Avenue and Delaware Street, Scranton, PA 18509.
