Chris will always be remembered for his free spirit and his kind and helpful nature towards friends and family. Known for being an excellent cook, he regularly prepared meals for his fellow workers at Roesch, Inc. where he worked many years as a welder. He was also extremely proud of the 4 years he served in the U.S. Navy. Chris loved introducing his nieces and nephew to art and music. It's some of the things he loved the most that he passed on to them and which will always be remembered by them.

Mr. Davis was preceded in death by his father, Elmer L. Davis; and his grandfather, Howard Shelton.

He is survived by his mother, Judy S., nee Shelton, Davis; a brother, Darin (Joyce) Davis; a nephew, Noah Davis, two nieces, Kaylee Davis and Isabella Davis; and his grandmother, Virginia Shelton.
