Charles, our beloved brother, uncle, and friend to many, transitioned peacefully into heaven on August 21, 2019 from his earthly residence, Majestic Care in Whitehall, Ohio. We rejoice knowing… In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that were I am, there ye may be also. ~ John 14:14.
Charles Edward Davis, 82 years old, was born in a small coal mining town, Raleigh, West Virginia to the union of the late Jessie James and Mabel Bell Davis on February 4, 1937.
Charles attended and graduated from Stratton High School in Beckley, West Virginia where he resided for many years with his sister Ernestine and brother James. He was a faithful member of Saint Matthews AME Church during his stay in Beckley. With his well-known jovial spirit for people and the outdoors, it prompted the beginning of a respectable lawn care service, that was built on trust and integrity.
In the community he was known as “Uncle Charles.” Our fondest memories of Charles are: a faithful Dodgers fan, who enjoyed bowling, fishing, playing board games, spending time with family and his most acclaimed accomplishments was his unquestionable love for the Lord and reading the Bible completely from Genesis to Revelation many times over.
Later in His journey, Charles took a leap of faith to live with his sister Bettie and her late husband Rev. Leon Wilson. This move enhanced his life tremendously, beginning with new relationships; his church home, Church of Gold in Springfield, Ohio and a special dutiful nephew, John, who was his caretaker.
Charles leaves to cherish his loving memory, three sisters, Evelyn Watson, Bettie Wilson and Mae Hall; sister-in-law, Barbie Davis; and brother, Joe (Kathy) Davis; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Charles was preceded in death by brothers James and John, sisters Ernestine, Violet, Ann, Sadie, Zelma and Joan.
Charles is much loved and will be truly missed by all the lives he has touched in some special way.
