DUPONT — William Davis, 75, of Dupont, passed away Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018.

Born in Pittston on Nov. 16, 1942, he was the son of the late Kenneth and Helen (McCabe) Davis.

He was a graduate of Hughestown High School and retired from Techniglas, where he had worked as a welder.

William was a member of the Francis Dorance Chapter of the Pennsylvania Archaeological Society, St. Joseph Marello Parish, Pittston, the Dupont Volunteer Hose Co. and the Dupont Polish Club. He was an avid outdoorsman — from catching trout in the Delaware River to hunting rabbits with his two beagles, Sadie and Daisy.

In addition to his parents, William was preceded in death by his wife, Sharon (Rodola) Davis, in 2001; and brothers Patrick and Teddy Davis.

Surviving are his son, Michael Davis, of Dupont; daughter Rebecca Davis and her fiancée, Mary Pitek, of Philadelphia; granddaughter Kelli Sharon Davis; brothers Kenneth Davis, of Craig, Colo., Robert Davis, of North Brunswick, N.J., and Tom Davis, of Yatesville; numerous nieces and nephews; and longtime companion, Camille Stanis, of Hughestown.
