It is hard to sum up a person’s life in a few words. It is even more difficult when trying to do so for such an amazing man like Gregg Davis. Gregg was born August 30, 1962 in Toledo, Ohio and moved to Maryland with his family at the age of two. In his 58 years on this earth, he had many great accomplishments. The most important being his 36-year marriage with the love of his life, Debbie, and raising two sons as respectable men, Michael and Christopher. Along with them, he leaves behind his daughters-in-law, Niki and Tiffany, and his four grandsons, Ethan, Camden, Corben, and Callahan. He was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Phyllis, and also survived by his siblings, Scott and Lisa, and many nieces and nephews. He graduated with a Master of Science in Telecommunications Management from the University of Maryland. He worked as a cook in a restaurant, as a DJ for a radio station, and as a major account representative for Verizon. During the past 6 years of his retirement in South Carolina, he volunteered as a Neighborhood Rep and for various other Sun City committees, and once a year for 3 days, he became “Stevie” – the MC for Pledge the Pink 30-mile walk for breast cancer. He was an amazing man, husband, father, grandpa and friend.
As a husband and friend, no one could compare. From the time they started dating in 1982, Debbie could tell he was the most kind and gentle person she had ever met. Throughout their married life, he believed in hard work to provide for his family, being available whenever someone needed him, and caring for others before he thought of himself. Gregg and Debbie moved to Bluffton in 2012 and were thrilled to start Chapter 2 of their life. He enjoyed his Sun City friends, walking on the beach, his bootcamps, advocating for Breast Cancer awareness, and working part-time at Moss Creek. He left this world far too young; however, he will be remembered for the positive way he touched the lives of everyone he met. He treated all with dignity and respect. His favorable, supportive influence made those who knew him want to improve our own lives and follow in his example.
As a father and grandpa, there could be no greater role model. Dad was a simple and driven person not bothered by status or appearance. He took pride in helping others while making our family his first priority. As kids, Dad opened us up to experiences such as sports and scouting. As adults, he was always there to take care of us from moving across country, assisting us with home improvements to helping take care of his newborn grandchildren. As Grandpa, he will always be remembered for his light-hearted energy, gentle personality, and loving spirit. Throughout our lives, he has been our hero, reminding us to be kind, and take care of each other as life is short. We smile because he lived life to the fullest, made all who knew him better, and lived with no regrets. To the man who made us the men we are, we love you forever, GODSPEED.
