Dennis Dalton Davis, 71, of Kelly departed this earth on wings of his angel on Friday, October 18, 2019 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
He was born February 21, 1948 in Cumberland County, the son of the late, Jerry Lee Davis and Leatrice Matthews Phillips. Dennis was preceded in death by his brother, Clifford Reynolds and sister, Joan Gore.
Dennis leaves behind his beloved family; his wife of 50 years, Sylvia Squires Davis; sons, Ira Glenn Davis and Jeffery Scott Davis; daughter, Shannon Jeanette Davis; grandchildren, Cassandra Marie Margus and Dakota Dalton Davis; brother, James D. Davis; sister, Hattie Malpass (Billy); many extended family and friends.
Dennis served his country honorably in the US Navy during the Vietnam Conflict. Being a faithful servant of the Lord, Dennis was a member of Centerville Baptist Church where he taught the Men’s II Sunday school class and had served as a deacon. For 20 years Dennis was active in the Kelly Volunteer Rescue Squad.
Dennis was a Godly man who loved and cared for his family. He had a smile that brightened any day, a laugh that brought much joy, and the ability to tell a good joke/story. He never met a stranger, made friends easily, and was a loyal friend to many. In addition, Dennis found time to hunt and fish in God’s beautiful world of nature. His departure from his earthly life leaves a big hole in our hearts and in our family circle. Dennis was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
The family will receive friends at 1:00 p.m. Monday, October 21, 2019 at Centerville Baptist Church with funeral service beginning at 2:00 p.m. in the church sanctuary. The Rev. Allan Murray, Rev. Teddy Lawson and The Rev. Jack Miller will conduct the service.
