Andrew Duane Davis

On January 16, 2012 our beautiful son lost his long hard battle with drug addiction.

Andrew was born November 24, 1980 to Barry Davis and Launa Lee Hulsey in Ogden, Utah.

Andrew truly lived life to the fullest. His proudest accomplishment was being a member of the Imperial Rainbow Court of Northern Utah. He was recently crowned Empress,
an honor he worked for 17 years to achieve. With this organization, he was proud to serve many charities.

Andrew had a light in him that was infectious to all. Everywhere he went he was surrounded with friends and family. He made a friend with every person he met.

Andrew was always theatrical and was studying theater at Weber State. His lifelong dream was to study in Arizona to be a stand-up comedian. A dream he was going to achieve this coming summer.

Andrew is survived by his parents; Barry and Kathy Davis and Launa Lee and Kass Hulsey, his siblings; William and Elaina Davis, Crystal and Jake Noyes, Valerie Walker, Kelvyn Hulsey, Sean Walker, Tonkia Hulsey and Jacey and Jason Carter, his four nieces and four nephews and one on the way. He was also survived by his grandparents, Launna and Cleve Albiston, Dalene Lusby, Dorothy Hulsey and Ron and Grace Schrotter.

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers; Jack London, Reed Hulsey, Albert Davis and Rod Lusby.

Please join us to pay our respects between 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2012, at Leavitt's Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden.

Services under the direction of Leavitt's Mortuary.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at Golden West Credit Union or Wells Fargo Bank.

Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.leavittsmortuary.com
