William Davis Sr. 

 

    William “Bill” Davis Sr., 67, of Scottsville, quietly left his earthly home on Monday, September 2, 2019.              

   Just hours before he flew to his Heavenly home, there was a beautiful rainbow right outside his window, letting us know that God was near.

   He was born on September 25, 1951. He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Evelyn Davis, and two brothers, Tommy and Dennis.
   Bill was an avid hunter. For many years he oversaw the operations at the Appleberry Mountain Hunt Club. He taught concealed carry/gun training classes and made countless new friendships while doing so. Bill enjoyed his morning coffee, breakfast, and gossip with his buddies at Lumpkin’s Restaurant, Fox’s Cafe and Moose’s By The Creek Restaurant. 
  Survivors include his devoted wife of 38 years, Betty Pollard Davis; his children, Keith Davis, Tonya Jordan, and Steven “Boo” Davis and wife, Rachel; his stepdaughter, Carolyn; four grandchildren, Haley, Justin, Savannah, and Peyton; his siblings, Patsy, Martha, Wayne, Wally, Pam, Jerry Wayne, and Joy; his loyal Golden Retriever, Hunter; along with many other family members and friends.

    A memorial celebration of Bill’s life will be conducted at 2 p.m., on Saturday, September 7, 2019, at Thacker Brothers Scottsville Funeral Home by the Rev. George Morris. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. 
   In lieu of flowers, please consider memorial contributions to Wesley’s Chapel United Methodist Church, c/o Martha Black, 1794 Rolling Road S., Scottsville, VA 24590.

Dear Betty and Davis family,

Tom and I were shocked to learn of Bill's death. When we were working we were on the same schedule as Bill, and if we didn't see him pass by we would wonder what was up! He would always wave and smile. May God look over you and give you peace.

So sorry to hear of Williams passing. He and I enjoyed cruising with our classic 1957 and 1963 Chevys up and down Charlottesville s Main and Water streets long before there. was ever a downtown Mall..Those were happy days and like Autumn leaves floated on away,it was a time that I miss.William and I were the same age and both of us enjoyed 45/70 rifles and hunting. My brother Bradley and I used to bear hunt on Appleberry mountain and Butler and Ball mountains with Plott hounds in the late 1970s. My dad the Game Warden would tell William they are wasting their time and they better make sure every where they go they have written permission...William and I would laugh about that many times. William was good hearted and will surely be missed. May God bless his family and loved ones at this time. Sincerely, Ray Walker Jr.

Condolences to the Davis family in the passing of Bill. May God wrap his arms around each of you during this difficult time. He was a kind person and always had a smile. I have fond memories of the Burger House Days when he and his friends would gather for coffee time.

I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of Bill.. I knew he was going through a tough time lately with his health.. Bill always had that smile and joking manner about him and I enjoyed our chats and such at lumpkins and foxes restaurants. I wish the very best to all of the family!! If there’s anything I can do just get in touch!

We are so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. We truly enjoyed sending our customer's to him for their firearms education. He was passionate about people knowing the proper handling of a firearm. He was a joy to talk with and I loved how he lit up when talking about his wife. The world was a safer place with him here. Our deepest sympathy and condolences to his family.
Vicki and Kenny
