Burton K. Davis Obituary
Burton K. Davis

AGE: 85 • Deerfield Beach, FL

Burton K. Davis of Deerfield Beach, Fl., formerly of Beachwood, NJ, passed peacefully in Florida on August 22, 2017. He was 85.

Known affectionately as "the Jersey Shore's favorite milkman", he owned and operated HOME TOWN DAIRY, INC. from 1971-1997. He also partnered with Nancy Schott in Home Town Travel, Inc. in Manahawkin, NJ.

Born in Orange, NJ, he lived most of his life Beachwood, his "little slice of Heaven", and raised his 4 daughters there. Later residing there 23 with his wife Lynn, he relocated to Florida when Super Storm Sandy took its toll on his riverfront home.

He leaves behind Lynn, his loving wife of 29 years; 4 beautiful daughters: Nancy (Tony) Lorenzo of Beachwood, Patty (Larry) Belluscio of Purcellville, Va., Barbara Davis of Berlin, NJ, and Joanne (Gary) Rice of Stuart, Fl.; 2 stepsons: Jack Martin of Deerfield Beach, Fl. And Michael Martin of Toms River, NJ; 10 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandchild and a host of loving family and friends.

Burt was never happier than when he was helping someone in need, even if it was just a smile and word of encouragement. He especially enjoyed cheering for his favorite the NY Giants. A loyal, diehard fan, he loved to tailgate or host Super Bowl parties in Florida. Everyone knew his love of the game and the Giants.

He graduated from Toms River High school, Class of 1949, and was inducted into their Hall of Fame, and later to their Sports Hall of Fame for Baseball.

Early on, he co-founded the Beachwood/Pine Beach Little League, was Past President and exempt member of the Beachwood Fire Co., Past President of the Beachwood/Berkeley Rotary Club. As a "Paul Harris" fellow with more than 45 years in the Rotary, he lived the 4-way test every day.

He served a number of charitable endeavors for many years and was feted by several, too man to list. Most notably, The United Way of OC, was Trustee Emeritus of Community Medical Center, and was named "Citizen of the Year" of his beloved home town of Beachwood in 1995.

His good deeds did not go unnoticed by his ultimate hero, Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior.

While snowbirding in Fl., he attended Christ Church UM in Ft. Lauderdale, singing in the choir, serving with his wife as lay pastors by hosting a Wesley Fellowship Group and Serving Communion.

But he loved his home church, First United Methodist of Toms River, having joined in 1949, he was the longest surviving member of that church until his passing.

A service to celebrate his love of life and service will be held at the church on Chestnut St. and Old Freehold Rd., in Toms River on Sept. 29th at 11:00 AM with a repast following at The Captain's Inn, Lacey Rd., Forked River, NJ.

He will be sorely missed by all.
