He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Elsa Marie Faron Davis.

He is also survived by his children, Paul Dixon of Huntsville, AL, Debbie Maute of Edgewood, WA, Sandy Herrington and husband Mike of Odessa, TX, CherylAnn Purtle of Huntsville, AL, Scott Davis and wife Kelly of St. Marys, GA and Kristopher Burgess and wife Meghan of Bridgeport; grandchildren Toby, Dustin, Toni Michelle, Kayleigh, Hannah, Rachel, Chandler, Ainsley, Adalynn, Piper, Josh and Kelly;

and twelve great grandchildren; brothers and sisters, Joyce Coffey of Lumberport, Brenda Stark and husband Don of Shinnston and Kim Nay and husband Joe of Huntsville, AL; and several nieces and nephews.  The family would like a special thank you to Guy’s nephew, Mark Coffey, for all the extra care that he showed his Uncle Guy during the last years.

In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by one son, Guy William Davis, Jr.; one brother, Richard (Rick) Lee Davis and one sister, Judith (Judy) Tichenor.

Guy was a graduate of Lumberport High School, class of 1957.  He was an Army Veteran with over 20 years of service, including two tours in Vietnam, where he earned the Bronze Star for Heroism.  Following his military retirement in 1979 he went on to work for Kentron, where he was site manager from 1983-1985 at Kwajalein, Marshall Islands, and then was employed with Boeing.  Guy earned his Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering from West Virginia University in 1972.  He also earned his Masters degree in Business Administration in 1974 from Fairleigh Dickenson.  Guy volunteered for over 15 years at the United Technical Center in Hepzibah, where he worked in the Auto Body Repair class with his dear friend, Danny Shingleton.  He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Clarksburg, where in 1829, his GGG Grandfather, John Garrett, was a founding member.

He was a loving son, husband, father and friend.  He loved the out-doors, including hunting, fishing, camping, traveling, but most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff of the WVVNF for the care given to Guy while he was there.  They went above and beyond to make sure he was well taken care of.
