Jackie Lee Davis, born in Enloe, Texas on June 6, 1931, went to be with the Lord on July 3, 2018 in his family home in Greenville, Texas.  Jack was preceded in death by his mother, Alma Gertrude Chambers-Davis, his father George Mack Davis, his sisters, Velma Carter and Evelyn Mexia and brother Charles Lee Davis.  Mr. Davis served in the U. S. Air Force throughout the Korean War before achieving a Bachelors Degree in Industrial Arts Education and a Masters Degree in Administrative Education.  Jack Davis retired from the Houston Independent School District as an Assistant Superintendent after many years of outstanding service.

Throughout his life, Mr. Davis was very active in in his community through volunteering at local events, voter polls and businesses.  A pillar of his community, Mr. Davis was called upon by his neighbors and friends when they were in need and he was always there to lend a helping hand.  Being a life long learner and teacher, he passed on his knowledge to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

This amazingly strong man also loved to laugh and bring joy to those around him.  He was notorious for playing fun-filled pranks on just about everyone he met, singing made up songs, and referring to himself by silly names.  Jack leaves behind his loving wife of 65 years, Jackie Gwin Davis, children, Vicki, Judy and Mike, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  He is also survived by his dear sisters, Norma Jean Burton and Mary Jane Sewell and devoted brother, Benny Davis.

His memorial service will be 2:00 PM, Saturday, July 21, 2018, at Coker-Mathews Funeral Home Chapel in Greenville, Texas with Chaplain Richard Moore officiating.
