Dedicated to Friends, Past and Present

Jerald Douglas Davis, 73, of Sparta, GA, died peacefully in his home in Clarkston, GA. Thursday, June 23, 2016. Jerald was a U.S. Air Force Veteran and a Hapeville Firefighter. He retired from Republic Airlines and then once again as Owner of Blue Awards in Hapeville. In his spare time he was a Past Worshipful Master of the Masonic Hapeville Lodge 590, F&AM; Major of the Provost Guard Yaraab Shrine Temple, Secretary Treasurer of the Northeast Shrine Provost, Chairman of the Lake Sinclair Property Owners Association and distribution manager of the Hancock County Review newspaper. He enjoyed many activities including boating, fishing, camping, adventuring, oil painting, sewing, model ship making, building cabinets (plus an entire house), and of course - kareoke! He is survived by his wife, Kathy Davis; children, Alan Davis, Michele Runge & Bruce Belden, Samantha Runge & Ken Lawrence; grandchilden, Alexander Lawrence, Gracelynn Lawrence; brother, Stephen & Barbara Davis; sisters, Winona Horne, Anita Paden, Patricia Esparza. A Masonic Rites Service will be held at the Donehoo-Lewis Funeral Home chapel in Hapeville, GA at 1:00 p.m. Monday, June 27th. Interment will follow at the Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens in College Park, GA. The family requests that those desiring to send flowers send growing plants, so that Jerald's memory lives on in them. The family will receive friends Monday from 11:00 a.m. until the service hour at Donehoo-Lewis Funeral Home 404-761-2171. Jerald loved life and lived every day to the fullest. There were no fewer than 5 projects in progress at any given time (currently - boat remodel, argo restoration, king size quilt creation, dog coats in process and twenty model ship hulls). He may have met his end, but his projects never will. If you're reading this you meant the world to him so if you have any stories or memories you would like to share, please comment below. I would love to hear them!
