Carmen Obit:

After a long and full life filled with family, friends, and much fun, Carmen D. Davis died at his Mowbray Mountain home on February 18, 2015. He was born on November 6, 1923 to Russell D. Davis and Lucille H. Davis on Mowbray Mountain in the Huckleberry community in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee. Carmen lived life exactly as he wanted and enjoyed it to the very fullest. During his long life, Carmen made friends wherever he went and was beloved by his family and friends alike. He enjoyed spending time fishing and playing a good game of cards. Carmen always wore what he liked, Stetson and Panama Straw hats, pressed white shirts (no starch) and Liberty overalls, no matter the occasion. A Democrat all his life, he was never shy about sharing his opinions, political or otherwise. During World War II, Carmen served in the United States Navy on the USS Duffy in the Pacific Ocean. Working hard for his family all his life, Carmen was a member of the Laborers International Union of North America. His family and friends will forever miss his unwavering support, bold and tenacious spirit, and unconditional love. 

Carmen is preceded in death by his parents, siblings Clifford, Coleen, and Cloyd Davis, and his son Jackie Ray Davis. He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Katherine R. Davis, as well as his children Carmen (Wayne) Lewis and Kathy (Thom) Commander; his grandchildren Glenn (Melanie) Lewis, Elisha (Jay) Mele, Katherine (Jonathan Poehlman) Commander, and Matthew (Ashley Couch) Commander; his great-grandchildren Gavin Mele, Lindsey Lewis, Ethan Mele, Grace Lewis and Logan Mele; several nieces and nephews; and close family friends Monique Spear and Mike Spear.

A private celebration of his life will with military honors will be held at a later date.
