Kerry Duane Davis, 50, of Maysel, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, on Friday, October 5, 2018. He was born on May 24, 1968, to Ralph and Linda (Pauley) Davis.  Kerry’s life was an adventure from the beginning.

His greatest joys were his family, church family and friends.  He was a member of Clay First Baptist Church, where he served faithfully as an usher and member of the choir.

Kerry worked for nearly 30 years at Clay County Services Unlimited.  He took great pride in his job and often insisted on going to work, even if the workshop was closed.  In 2010, Kerry was thrilled to receive the Work Center Employee of the Year Award.

A graduate of Clay County High School, Kerry supported the Panther football team on the field at nearly every home game for as long as he was physically able.

Kerry was always ready with an encouraging hug or high-five.  He made people smile wherever he went.

He was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents.

In addition to his parents, Kerry is survived by his four siblings, Steve (Kim) Davis of Sanford, N.C., Ronda (Wallace) Brown, of Procious, Rebekah (Dan) Bengston of Chesapeake, Va, and Matthew (Elizabeth) Davis of Maysel.  He was proudly “Uncle Kerry” to six nieces and six nephews and five great-nieces and two great-nephews.

A funeral service was held at 1 P.M. Sunday, October 7, at Wilson-Smith Funeral Home, Clay. Burial will be in Blue Knob Cemetery.
