Thomas Davis Obituary

Thomas Woodrow Davis Jr., aged 60, passed away on February 23, 2024, in Lakeland, Florida. Born on July 31, 1963, in Weirton, West Virginia, Thomas was a man whose laughter and passion for life left an indelible mark on all who knew him. He was the beloved husband of Karen Davis, the proud father of Alexander Nance, Dallas Davis, Thomas "Cole" Davis (Lacey), and Sandra "Sam" Davis. Thomas was predeceased by his parents, Thomas Woodrow Davis Sr. and Louiza Ann Powers, and is survived by his sister, Kathryn Littleton, and her husband, Duane.

Thomas spent his career on the road as a dedicated truck driver, a job that suited his adventurous spirit and love for meeting new people. His work took him across the country, but no matter where he roamed, his heart remained firmly with his family and friends. Known for his gregarious nature, Thomas was a social butterfly who could easily be the life of the party. His sense of humor was infectious, and his ability to tell a story was unmatched.

A die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan, Thomas never missed a game and was known to host lively gatherings at his home, where friends and family would rally around the television, cheering on their favorite team. His passion for the game was only rivaled by the pride he took in his children's accomplishments. He was their biggest cheerleader, always ready with a word of encouragement or a joke to lighten the mood.

Thomas's friends and family will remember him as a man who lived life to the fullest. He was funny and passionate, with a laugh that could light up a room and a presence that was both comforting and inspiring. As Mark Twain once said, "The secret of getting ahead is getting started." Thomas truly embodied this spirit, always ready to embark on a new adventure or tackle a challenge head-on.

His legacy is one of joy, resilience, and an unwavering commitment to his loved ones. Thomas Woodrow Davis Jr. will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him, but his memory will continue to bring smiles to the faces of those he left behind.

As we say goodbye to Thomas, we celebrate the life he lived and the love he gave. His journey on this earth may have ended, but the memories he created will endure forever. Rest in peace, Thomas; your laughter will echo in our hearts always.

Services will be held privately by the family.
