Bill Davis was born June 5, 1895, in Fort Scott, Kan.,
son of George and Bette (Hart) Davis, the youngest of five
children. He served our country in World War I. Upon his
return he married Sylvia Combs in 1921. They made their home
in Centerville, Mo., until 1947, then moved to Idaho residing
in Caldwell since 1950. He was a member of the First Baptist
Church and Veterans of WWI USA, Inc.
Bill worked for Missouri Pacific Railroad in Missouri
and was a janitor for the Harmon and Western Building in
downtown Caldwell for many years.
With the same valiant courage that he lived his life
here, Bill slipped quietly away and was most anxious to see
his Heavenly Father face to face and join his mother, a
daughter, and a grandson in the Heavenly throng, also his many
friends and the Apostles he has met through reading the Bible.
His loving ways hold his family here together and him
in our hearts.
Preceding him in death were his mother and father; four
sisters, Angie, Gerti, Jennie and May; a baby daughter, Norma;
his grandson and fishing partner, Don; and three nephews.
Bill is survived by his wife, Sylvia of Caldwell; a
daughter, Mary Myers; a granddaughter, Duanea Myers of
Caldwell; a granddaughter, Dayris Dunham; a grandson, Curt
Dunham and two great-grandchildren, Kayla and Meggan Dunham of
Eagle; a nephew, Albert Beadell, and a niece, Juanita Bolan of
Fort Scott, Kan., a niece, Eva Bates of Tumcumcari, N.M.; and
numerous great-nephews and nieces.
