Gerald Ray Davis

Gerald Ray “Jerry” Davis, age 74, of DeGraff, Ohio passed away peacefully at 11:22 p.m. Thursday, November 28, 2019, at home surrounded by his family.

He was born in Sidney, Ohio March 18, 1945, a son of the late Wavel Leon and Mabel (Lacey) Davis. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Barbara Egts; twin siblings Shirley Barga and Sherman Davis and a brother, Ronald Davis.

On March 31, 1979, Jerry married the former Janice Kay Dressback in DeGraff and she survives along with two daughters, Tauna (Nick) Heisler of Lawton, Oklahoma and Jill Parthemore of DeGraff; two sons, Jeremy (Amanda) Davis of Jackson Center, Ohio and Joe (Karen) Davis of Norfolk, Virginia; six grandchildren, Dustin (Becca) Heisler, Logan (Josh) Lerch, Kelsey Parthemore, Kyle Parthemore, Caleb Davis and Levi Davis; many nieces and nephews and his granddog “Piper”.

Jerry retired from Navistar in 1999 following thirty one years of service. He was a member of the Quincy United Methodist Church and also volunteered as a firefighter and rescue squad driver for the Quincy Fire Department for fifty years.  His many passions included coaching his kids through the years, carpentry, riding his Harley and cracking jokes to put a smile on anyone’s face.  He took great pride in sharing his love for serving others through mission trips to New Orleans and Kentucky.  He also expressed his passion to serve others through many local projects in the Riverside community.

The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at the Quincy United Methodist Church in Quincy, Ohio.
