Danny Michael Davis
Danny Michael Davis, 47, of Floresville, Texas, died suddenly at home on Monday, Feb. 24, 2014. One of nine children, he was born to William and Jacqueline Davis on Jan. 10, 1967, in Baltimore, Md.
After 23 years of honorable service, he retired as a chief gunner’s mate in 2008 from the U.S. Navy. Active in the community, he served as assistant Scout master for Troop 114, worked tirelessly with the 4-H Club, and assisted with the Girl Scouts. He also enjoyed golfing and keeping up his gunner’s mate skills at the Nardis Gun Club. His main devotion, however, was to his family, with whom he enjoyed vacationing, working in the orchard, or simply spending time around the home. He was an exceptional cook and loved to grill and relax in the hot tub.

He is survived by his devoted and loving wife, Kimberley; five children, Danny Jr. and Justin of Memphis, Tenn., Chelsea of Phoenix, Ariz., and Zachary and Madaline of Floresville; his granddaughter, Delilah; sisters Toni, Kimberly, and Darlene; brothers Rick, Brad, and William “Bill”; numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.
