George Edward Davis, 81, of Tompkinsville, KY passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 10th, at Hospice House of Bowling Green.
George was born in Tompkinsville, KY on January 2, 1941, a son of the late Edna Mae (Denton) and George Ezra Davis.
On June 10, 1961, he married Linda Sue (Hale) Davis, who survives, of Tompkinsville, KY.
George was a carpenter and farmer. He was of the Methodist faith and was a member of the Campground United Methodist Church. He loved coo-coo clocks, going camping, fishing and traveling to the Mountains. He loved working in the shop and building things with family members. He truly enjoyed building anything that he was gifting to a family member. More than anything, he loved spending time with friends and family, just visiting and playing pitch, and eating cakes from Sherry Crawford. He had a fierce love for his family and always had a story to tell about his children or grandchildren, and especially his great granddaughter, Melanie.
Other than his wife, Sue Davis, George is survived by his children, Paul Davis, and wife, Carole; Chris Davis, and wife, Amanda, and Angela Payne (David), all of Tompkinsville, KY; six grandchildren, Cassie England (Eric), Kellie Davis (Kaitlyn), Gavin Davis (Lacy), Hanna Davis (Nick), Alexis Hunley (Adam), Matthew Payne (Kourtney); and one great granddaughter, Melanie England.
Also surviving are three sisters, Garnetta Hays, of Tompkinsville, KY, Geneal Goad (Frankie) of Gamaliel, KY; Wilda Davis, of Tompkinsville, KY, and many loved nieces and nephews.
George is preceded in death by his parents, George Ezra and Edna Mae (Denton) Davis; siblings, Floyd E. Davis, Charles Davis, Mary Blakley, Garndal E. Davis, Betty Lou Davis; and two great grandchildren, Peyton and Elijah England.
