Arthur "Buzz" Lee Davidson Jr., of Newport News Virginia, went home to the Father on July 28, 2020, at his home. He was a native of Newport News. Buzz worked for over 20 years as a car salesman at Denbigh/Pearson Toyota and before that ran Stoneybrook Tire, where he knew everyone in Denbigh. He walked in the path of Jesus helping all he could. Buzz Davidson never met a stranger, he was a giant among men, and his kindness made this world a brighter place.

Buzz was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Alice Hussey, and father, Arthur Lee Davidson. He is survived by his daughter, Lauren Moore (Zachary) and Buzz's new joy, his grandson, Björn Aleksandr Moore; his son, Eric Rangel (Sam); his brother, Jim Davidson (Dee); along with a wonderful loving group of nieces, nephews, and life-long friends.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, August 2 from 2 to 4:00 p.m. at Peninsula Funeral Home. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Monday, August 3 at 2:00 p.m., with interment following at Peninsula Memorial Park. Facial Masks and social distancing will be required.

Arrangements are under the care of Peninsula Funeral Home, 11144 Warwick Blvd., Newport News, VA 23601.

Buzz was one of the kindest men I’d ever met. He was a friend and mentor at a time when as a young man, I really needed that.

I had not heard about his passing. He just came to mind and I looked him up.

My deepest condolences to his family and extended circle of friends who all are better for having known him.

Buzz was a fine and endearing man, a proud Warwickian that I only wish I had known better. On a few occasions, we exchanged historical stories and local historical tidbits and I knew right away he was quite the authority on the subject.
I appreciate our little exchanges and wished of course we could have had more of them.
Rest well, sir.

Dear Lauren,
I spoke with your father on Monday about a "tire" issue my son was having with his car. He was going to check on some things for me and call me back. We had such a great conversation that day. He told me multiple times that you had been such a blessing to him and that you were such an angel to bring him groceries and carry him to see his doctors. Now he can be your angel! Sorry for your and your families loss!

Uncle Buzz had a heart of gold and always had a smile on his face. I remember so many of his funny stories that he would talk hours and hours about. He will be greatly missed by so many people.

Buzz you were truly a blessing and joy to our family. We will cherish the memories of visiting you at the dealership and dinners out with the family. You could always count on Buzz to greet you with a warm hug and a few new "Buzz" jokes. There are few in this world like him. He definitely leaves a legacy behind of what it means to care for and love people well. He will be missed greatly. Praying for comfort for his daughter, family and friends.
