Clinton Talmadge Davis

June 1, 1948 — September 24, 2022

Clinton Talmedge Davis, also known as Clenton or Clint, was born to the late Annie Beatrice Brockett Davis and Lonnie Lee Davis, Sr. in Princess Anne County, now Virginia Beach, Virginia.  He graduated from Union Kempsville High School in 1967.

Clinton was very successful in agriculture class, where he created a drain digger.  Many agriculture owners followed his pattern to create their own.

Upon finishing high school, Clinton completed a welding apprenticeship program, which landed him jobs at Steele Globe Shipyard and Colonna's Shipyard.  He also worked as a concrete finisher under the training of his Uncle T. C. Davis.  He passed his training knowledge on to his nephew, Clifton Davis, Jr.  Clinton worked as a longshoreman for 15 years, and he was a member of International Longshoremen's Association, Local 1248.

Brother Davis was baptized by the late Dr. Spencer L. Scott, Jr. at an early age, and he was a member of Union Baptist Church.  Later he became a member of New Hope Church of God In Christ.  His favorite gospel song was "He's Sweet I Know."

Clinton was preceded in death by his mother and father, Annie B. Brockett Davis and Lonnie Lee Davis, Sr., and his sister, Doris M. Davis.

He leaves to cherish his memory three devoted daughters; Takoia Lewis, Cindy Davis and Ashley Davis; one granddaughter, Cinaiya Lewis; two brothers, Lonnie L. Davis, Jr. (Shirley) and his twin, Clifton S. Davis (Adella, deceased); two sisters, Mildred L. Forbes (Isaac) and Jean A. Wilson (Julian); and his ex-wife, Alverta Jones Davis; three brothers-in-law, William Jones, Linwood Jones and Harrison Jones.

Clinton never met a stranger.  You could always count on him bringing you some fresh vegetables, and greeting you by asking you how you were doing and What do you know that was good. He will be deeply missed by all.
