George Norman Davis passed away on Monday, September 26th, 2016. Apparently he meant it when he said he would rather die than have to watch the presidential debate. At least he is no longer obligated to vote, firmly believing regardless of the outcome, the nation is going someplace in a handbasket and he would rather travel in the opposite direction. Thankfully his wife Emma Lou, parents George & Nellie, sister Maggie, cousins Bill & John, and good friends Ann & Wade who have preceded him, finally convinced the man upstairs that he was too old to cause much trouble up there and it’s safe to let him in. Highly debatable, but God knows best. Norman spent his childhood near Booth’s Corner and joined the U.S. Army as a young man. He spent the rest of his life exaggerating the hardships of both. He was an OTR trucker and later a great mechanic except for never being able to find the right parts. He liked country music, NASCAR, hunting, fishing, and making up wild stories about the latter two. To those he left behind, siblings Wallace, Ralph, Marie, and Betty; Daughters Wendy, Shelley, and Laurie; granddaughters Sarah, Kaitlyn, and Lang; he was one of a kind, a truly great man, and will be missed dearly. Funeral services will be held Friday, September 30th at 11am at the Veterans Cemetery in Millsboro, DE.
