Charles Davis Obituary

In Loving Memory of Charles "Charlie" Leonard Davis

Charles Leonard Davis, affectionately known as Charlie, walked peacefully into the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Tuesday, September 26, 2023.  Born on July 28, 1953, in Danville, VA, Charlie was the son of the late Dorothy Evans Hundley and the late Clark Lee Davis.

Charlie is survived by his dedicated wife, Jeanie Davis, and his loving daughter, Jessica Lauren Long. He was a proud grandfather to five beautiful grandchildren: Ethan, Caroline, Jonah, Finnley, and Daphne. According to his grandson Finnley, "He was the best grandpa in the whole wide world!"

Additionally, he was dearly loved by his stepdaughter Christina Mason and son-in-law Carl Mason, along with their children Samara, Samiyah, and Carl Jr. Also celebrating the life of Charlie, his stepson Gerald and daughter-in-law May Pleasents and their children Christa, Kadean, Gerald Jr. (JP) and Mattaya (Maddie).

Besides his immediate family, Charlie will be dearly missed by his sisters Shirley Crumpton, Valerie Phelps, and Theresa Mitchell. He was preceded in death by his siblings Louise Pruitt, Sue Allen, Janice McCormick, Margie Thomas, Wayne Davis, Ronnie Davis, Gary Davis, Lee Davis, and Tommy Davis.

Charlie's life was filled with passion and love for his country. He was not only a devoted grandfather but also an avid book reader, nature watcher, and thrift store/antique shopper. For over 30 years, his artistry as a brick mason adorned the streets of Danville, where he was heralded as the top brick mason in the area. Charlie found solace in deep-sea fishing, delighted in the sounds of rock and roll from the 60s, and passionately cheered for the Washington Redskins and the Atlanta Braves.

To honor Charlie's memory, a viewing and visitation service will be held at Swicegood Funeral Home in Danville, VA, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., on Sunday, October 1st.  In lieu of flowers, Charlie's giving spirit encourages all to consider making a donation to a charity of their choice, as he himself was a dedicated philanthropist.

Charlie touched the lives of countless people with his humor, artistry, and patriotism. He will be remembered as a truly remarkable individual who made an impact on those around him. May his soul find eternal peace, and may his memory forever warm our hearts.
