Bryant Davis

October 18, 2018

Bryant Davis Bryant Davis Jr., 69, of Oak Hill, West Virginia, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday the 18th of October, 2018.
He was greeted at the Pearly Gates of Heaven by his father Bryant Davis Sr., his mother Gladys Davis, his beloved sister Carol Plymale, his precious daughter Laura Beth, his nephew David Plymale, and his friends Russell Roop, Carl Gibson, and Paul Gibson.
His services will be Monday, the 22nd of October, from 1pm to 3pm for visitation with the funeral being led by Robert Morey at 3pm at High Lawn Funeral Home in Oak Hill.
He is sorely missed by his family and friends, who love him so dearly, more than anything in the world. He was survived by his sons Bryant J. Davis and Joshua W. Davis and his daughter Katelyn B. Davis, his granddaughter Lily J. Davis and grandsons Braxton W. Davis and Paxton K. Davis, his ex-wife/friend Lisa L. Davis, his daughters-in-law Amy J. Davis and Jessica A. Davis, his close friends Roy Fleming, Mark Gibson, James "Gee" Harrah, Tadpole, and so many more friends, and his brothers and sisters in Christ at Fayetteville Christ Fellowship.
Bryant served his Naval term on the U.S.S. John F. Kennedy, manning the anchor. He loved traveling and the beautiful scenery on the aircraft carrier. He loved and was proud to serve his country and was proud to be a West Virginian and Mountaineer fan, which influenced many of his artworks.
Bryant took great pride in being surrounded by so many who love him and knowing so many people. He loved being outdoors and being in and experiencing nature. His favorite activities included hunting and fishing, catching driftwood to paint. Bryant was incredibly creative and artistic, he could make anything out of anything, people loved seeing his works of art around town from his bird houses to his driftwood paintings, down to his camouflage painted truck with the POW/MIA memorial on the tailgate. Bryant was a real man's man and gifted carpenter/painter and everyone could count on him to do the best job. He could always spread joy with the best, corny jokes and the most infectious laugh. He cared so deeply for the environment and donated every year, and often gifted us with Give-A-Tree cards. He was a loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend, and this year he got the greatest birthday gift of all, doing what he loved, in the woods hunting deer.
"I also got to do something I always liked to do. Hug a Tree." - Bryant Davis Jr.

I thought of you 2 days ago wondering if you were still in Oak Hill...I remember your American Flag drape and thought is was the coolest thing to hit the town! God bless you and your family and friends 😥💕

"Chin" used to spend the night at our house with my brothers, Donald and Kong. He was always so kind and polite. He was the very best artist as painter. I will truly miss this wonderful man.

My old buddy from childhood and the Summerlee Avenue neighborhood. Love and condolences for his family and friends. Many happy childhood and school memories. As often happens you lose touch through adulthood, family and work. Backyard football games, spotlight tag in the summer, bike riding and later his smile and always glad to see you greetings. Be at peace my brother!

Bryant was such a giving, caring man. I always loved the vegetables he gave me from his garden, and the deer meat he used to give me. The last time I saw him, he gave me vegetables. Sometimes when Lisa and Katelyn would come to visit Katelyn would bring me something he had made and told her to give me. He was always my brother-in-law, divorce didn’t change that! May God comfort the hearts of his family and all who loved him!
