Robert F. Davis

Born: 01/17/1952 Passed:

Robert “Robbie” Davis 68, died on August 20, 2020, following a short battle with cancer.  His final days were spent surrounded by his loving family and talking with his dearest friends.  Robbie was born on January 17, 1952, in Canton, Ohio, to Robert and Bernice Davis.  He graduated from Louisville High School in 1970 and went on to proudly serve in the United States Airforce from 1971-1975.  He spent the last 14 years working for the Stark County Weights and Measures Department.  He loved his job and work-family and insisted on working even in his final weeks.  When he was not working, you could find him on the golf course, spending time with his family, or at his grandchildren’s many sporting events.  He was a proud dad and grandpa.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Bernice Davis, and sister, Sandra Miller.

He is survived by his sister, Ginger (Roy) Ferguson; daughter, Angela (Robert) Burick; son, Robert (Gina) Davis; and 7 grandchildren, Davis, Emma, Abigail, Trey, Addison, Trevor, and Brynn.

A celebration of life/retirement party will be held on Sunday, August 30, 2020, at Skyland Pines Country Club from 2:00 to 5:00 in the lower level banquet room/outdoor patio overlooking the golf course.
