Wallace Davis, Sr., went home to be with the LORD on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at the age of 91. He was born in Plettenberg, West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana on Greenwood Plantation, February 16, 1928 to the late Demes Davis, Sr. and Georgia M. Whitfield-Davis. Drafted into the United States Marine Corps, he chose to fulfill his service in the United States Army between 1950 and 1956. He is a proud veteran of the Korean War conflict. After military service he worked for the East Baton Rouge City Parish-Public Works Department, until retiring in 1982. He accepted Christ as his LORD and Saviour, and was a member of the Olive Grove Baptist Church in Lindsey, LA. Over the years he faithfully served in his church as an usher and deacon. He enjoyed the simple things in life, professing his unwavering faith in Jesus as his Saviour, often praying and singing songs of praise to the LORD, day and night. Among other things, he thoroughly enjoyed coon hunting, gardening, wrestling, baseball, and meeting and talking with people.
