DAVIS, Richard Kenneth

With saddened hearts we announce the sudden passing of Rick on February 22, 2024, at the age of 59. Beloved husband of Joanne (Lebrun) Davis of 32 years. Loving father of Ashley Wise (Jack) and Braden Davis (fiancé Grace Paulos). Cherished son of the late Kenneth Davis and the late Noreen (née Lang) Davis.
Rick will be greatly missed by sisters Carol Luther (Rick) and Lynn Davis, and their children; Jay Luther (Karly O’Krafka), Jennifer Luther (Mike Napier), Aden Luther, Jordan Campbell (Emily), Nicole Campbell (Ryan Boulet), and great-niece Josiane Georgette Leclerc.

Rick’s life and purpose were wholly guided by his faith in Jesus Christ and displayed in part by his service as an Elder at Harborside Christian Church in Safety Harbor, Florida, and serving on the mission field locally, in Ecuador, and in Zimbabwe. While living in Savannah, Georgia, Rick could be found most weekends on the construction site for the sets of ‘The Journey’ at Compassion Christian Church. Always the first to offer his assistance, he willingly lived a life of service. An amazing cook, and an avid fly-fisherman, fishing with his own flies, being on the water was Rick’s happy place. And he followed in his dad’s footsteps, loving to tinker with cars. His greatest joy was his beloved family and dear friends. The world was a better place with Rick in it and he will be greatly missed.

Sincere thanks to the entire staff on the 7th and 5th floors of Tampa General Hospital for their exceptional care of Rick after an acute complication, following a recent cancer diagnosis.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 2, at 10 a.m., at Harborside Chapel, followed by a time of fellowship, including a light meal, at 2100 Marshall Street, Safety Harbor FL 34695. A celebration of Rick’s life will be held in his home of London, Ontario, Canada in the spring.
