Obituary

DARRELL WAYNE DAVIS Sr., the son of Cornelius A. Davis, Sr., and Esther L. Davis, was born on December 14, 1959, in Michigan City, Indiana. 

He received his education from the Michigan City Public Schools, receiving his general education diploma from Rogers Senior High School in 1978.

WAYNE accepted Christ as his savior at an early age and attended Life and The Word Church under Pastor Curtis Deal.

WAYNE worked for ITW Red Head Phillips Drill and Genco as a forklift operator and light laborer for many years. Later in life he worked at Dunescape Beach Club in maintenance and security.

WAYNE loved watching sports especially basketball. His favorite pastime was attending his grandkids sporting events and he would make sure to be there to support and cheer them on. He also loved playing board games with his grandchildren. He had a quiet disposition and carried himself with dignity, yet he did not allow his quietness to stop him from sharing his love for his family, friends, and co-workers.  WAYNE encouraged many, leaving no one without his special touch and care.  His smile and dry humor lit up a room, and his overall demeanor was infectious.  We will miss him and pray that our memories of him will fill our hearts and minds forever.
