Obituary

James Robert Davis, III, age 76, of O’Fallon, IL, born August 20, 1942, passed away on February 19, 2019 at Memorial Hospital East in Shiloh, IL.

James was born to James Robert Davis, Jr. and Louise Davis, nee Foster, who both preceded him in death. James was born and raised in Kinloch, Mo. He was baptized at an early age and loved his home church, Second Missionary Baptist Church of Kinloch. In his younger years, he enjoyed music. He participated in band and choir while in high school. He graduated from Kinloch High School in June 1960 and then joined the United States Air Force.

James proudly served our country in the United States Air Force for 28 years, receiving countless commendations, and retired with the rank of Senior Master Sergeant. After his military career, James proceeded to work at the Children’s Center for Behavioral Development as a building facility security manager, upon which he later retired. He and his wife enjoyed retirement by spending time at their second home in Florida. They would walk out their backdoor and enjoy the lake in their backyard. James enjoyed spending time with his childhood and military friends. He was a kind hearted and loving man. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father and grandfather who will be greatly missed.

Surviving are his wife, Young Davis, nee Baik; three children, James (Anjelica) Davis, IV, of Phoenix, AZ, Diane (Eric) Brown of St. Louis, MO and Lisa Davis of San Diego, CA; siblings Frank Davis, Anita (Norman) Johnson, Marie Green, Carolyn (Henry) Owens and Jimmie Ray (Barbara) Jeffery; 11 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and family friends.

Adashi,

Thank you for taking care of me. You always made me feel part of the family. I never came by out of respect for you and your wife, but now my greatest regret will always be I never went to see you to tell you. You were the only father figure I ever had and your Dad and Mom and all of the Aunts and Uncles made me feel like family. I always kept you and the rest of the Davis family in my heart and in my closest of cherished memories as a kid. Still so often, I can see you cooking.

I don’t know how I would have gotten by without you there sticking up for me from time to time. It was a very difficult time for me being apart from my Mom, but you made me feel as important, if not more, as your kids. I so love Robby, Diane, and Lisa but I was only a kid making kid mistakes too. At a time when I felt so out of place, you always made me feel at home. You brought me so much comfort when you would pat me on the shoulder and say, “it’s okay.”

Love,

Mi-Kyong-yi
