Walter Davis, age 92, of Cassville, Missouri passed through the gates of pearl Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at Roaring River Health and Rehabilitation. He quickly made his way down the streets of gold, past the jasper walls, alongside the River of Life until he came to the Throne of Grace where he knelt at the feet of his Lord and Savior.
Walt (as he liked to be called) was born November 8, 1927 in Guymon, Oklahoma the son of W. Ed and Ida (Jones) Davis. On July 4, 1955 he was united in marriage to Della F. Henderson, who preceded him in death on September 22, 2013. Also preceding him in death were his parents and his siblings, Edgar, Mary, Ruth, Lillie, Sam, Frank and Jim.
Surviving are one son, Walter Blayne Silva-Davis of Palm Desert, California; two daughters, Brenda Davis of Cassville, Missouri and Debra Lynn McGuire of Clovis, California; one granddaughter, Nicole Passler and her husband Stephen of Clovis, California; a great granddaughter, Abigale and soon-to-be a great grandson, Ethan.
Walter graduated from high school in Bentonville, Arkansas. On May 29, 1946 he joined the United States Navy and served until March 25, 1948. After the War he married and had the first of three children in Pea Ridge, Arkansas. After a short time he moved to California, where he was employed as a field repairman for Southern California Gas Company. In 1989 he retired and moved to Cassville to enjoy the rest of his days. He was a member of Community Faith Chapel and loved singing Christian hymns, both at church and later in the nursing home. Some of his favorite pastimes were feeding and watching birds and just enjoying nature.
Though our father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend will be so very missed, he would not want to return to this place of sorrow. For he so longed to be with the Savior of his soul, Jesus Christ in Heaven. And now that is where he resides forever!
Services will be held at 2:30 P.M. Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at Community Faith Chapel under direction of Fohn Funeral Home in Cassville. Pastor Rick Cooper will conduct the services.
Contributions may be made to Community Faith Chapel in memory of Walter.
