Floyd Reed Davis Obituary
Floyd Reed Davis

Louisville - Floyd Reed Davis, age 95 entered life with his Heavenly Father on August 11, 2018 at home in Treyton Oak Towers.

Born in Speed, IN., he followed his father in becoming a pharmacist. Upon graduation from Butler University Pharmacy School in 1943, he joined the Navy as the only pharmacist aboard the USS Oregon City. On his second day home from military service, he met a young woman on the recommendation of his father. Within 5 months they were married which has lasted nearly 72 years. Floyd owned Davis Audubon Drugs for 35 years and was a caring and respected member of the community. He was the local walk-in clinic before the concept was created. He was the consummate peace maker.

At Walnut Street Baptist Church, Floyd was a deacon for many years and served on numerous committees including the board of Baptist Towers. He was invited to join the Veteran's Drug Club where he served a term as president. He was a member of Lewis-Parkland Masonic Lodge # 638, Scottish Rite, and Kosair Shrine.

Floyd was a loving patriarch and frequently told his family to "Love one another!" and he lived by that mantra.

He is survived by his wife, Marjorie Bishop Davis; his daughter, Deborah L. Davis; sons, Floyd R. Davis, II (Mely), and Keith E. Davis (Mary Jane); and grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, August 14 from 2-8 PM at Highlands Funeral Home, 3331 Taylorsville Road, Louisville, KY. 40205.

Funeral Service will be held Wednesday, August 15 at 2:00 PM at Walnut Street Baptist Church, 1101 S. Third Street. A private burial will follow in Cave Hill Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be sent to Walnut Street Baptist Church.
