Kevin Davis passed away on Saturday October 3, 2019 in Sentara Leigh Memorial Hospital Norfolk, VA. Kevin Lewis Davis departed this phase of life. He accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior as a child and joined Little Piney Grove Baptist Church.
Kevin was born in Chesapeake, Virginia (Crestwood) on November 13, 1956 to his parents, Abram and May Queen Davis. He was reared in a loving family with his siblings Rosa, Ronnie, Yvette, Kenneth, Aaron and Larry. He was educated in the Virginia Beach Public School System and graduated from Floyd E. Kellam High School. Kevin was part of the United States Army for a short time. Later, he worked with the family business as a truck driver, heavy equipment operator and laborer. Kevin was later employed with the E. V. Williams Company as a heavy equipment operator. He often spoke of his industrious talent as the company completed the highway which connected Indian River Road with Interstate 64.
Yes, Kevin was a hard worker; but he was also quite a “character,” who enjoyed a good joke and he appreciated having fun. He relished spending time with family and cooking. He never met a stranger that didn’t love him, and was well loved by those who knew him.
Kevin was predeceased by his son-in-law Starr Bright; great-grandson Sedrick Smith; and brother Kenneth Davis.
He leaves holding to precious and cherished memories one daughter; Minister Nikita Bright; one step-daughter Tawanda (Rodney) Bunn; his parents Abram and May Queen Davis; four grandsons DeAndre (Lily), Jeremiah, Starr and Justin; two great-granddaughters Nila and Orlaith; five siblings Rosa Malone, Ronnie (Deborah) Davis, Yvette (James) Montgomery, Aaron (April) Davis and Larry (Vanessa) Spence; one sister-in-law Gloria Davis; a special friend Yvonne Johns and a host of uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends.
