Obituary for Gordon Phillip Davis
Gordon Phillip Davis, born November 12, 1922, passed away peacefully March 29, after a courageous battle with cancer. “Gordy” as he was affectionately known to family and friends, loved life and especially loved his family. Gordy also loved his countries too - yes, there were two. He loved his birth home of Canada, where he learned the value of harsh winters and hard work. He very much loved America as demonstrated by his courage during World War II where he proudly served in the United States Air Force and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. His sense of duty carried over into his life in Dixon where he served on the Planning Commission for several years. Gordy graduated from Oregon State University and worked in the heavy truck equipment business where he eventually owned his own company, Heil Equipment Company. His spirit was at its brightest when sports were involved. His favorite was baseball, but he enjoyed both snow skiing and water skiing. This great Scottish man leaves behind his Irish lass wife of over 37 years, PJ Davis (Dixon, CA); son Greg Davis and wife Anita (Lewiston, Idaho), son Mark Davis and wife Ginni (Davis, CA), son Lash Davis and wife Sharon (Morristown, TN); daughter Esta Bain (Albuquerque, NM), daughter Kelly Camp and husband Chris (Bremerton, WA), daughter Shelley Davis (Dixon, CA); grandchildren Cassie and Jolie (Idaho), Daniel Davis and wife Lily (Davis, CA); Eric Davis and fiancé Angela (West Sacramento, CA), Jacqueline Davis (Berkeley, CA), Candice Davis and Cody Davis (Tennessee), Savannah Camp (Bremerton, WA) and Gavin Camp (Bremerton, WA); great grandchildren Willow (Moscow, Idaho), Daniel Davis (Davis, CA) and Akira Davis (Davis, CA). There will be a viewing Thursday April 2 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at Milton Carpenter Funeral home – 569 N. First Street, Dixon. The funeral service with full military honors will be held Friday April 3 at 3:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints – 305 North Lincoln, Dixon. There will be a private burial at a later date.
