Alan James Davis was born August 3, 1953, to Archie and Erma Davis in Lubbock, Texas. He passed away peacefully on October 9, 2021. He was surrounded by his loving family.

Alan married his college sweetheart, Susan Walker, on July 31, 1976, and they were blessed with 3 beautiful daughters - Malia Scott, Lacy Davis Eads, and Ansley Davis Key, all of Lubbock.
His business interests began in the deep well turbine pump industry, alongside his dad. He later was the President of ADS Resources and was involved with oil and gas investments. He had an entrepreneurial spirit and approach to thinking that would actively seek out innovative ideas and embrace critical thinking and continuous improvement in several different areas of interest.
Alan was a loving, smart, strong, supportive, and protective husband and father. As his daughters were growing up he taught them many life lessons that have served them well in life.
He was blessed with four precious grandchildren who loved their ""AJ"" dearly. He loved teaching each of them new things and watching them grow and find their own individual interests. His grandchildren are Connor Key, Adalie Key, Elliot Eads, and Davis Eads.
