Francis Girard Davis Sr.

Provided for his Family

Francis Girard Davis, Sr. , born May 8, 1933 died September 1, 2011 after a very long illness while holding the hands of his beloved sisters, Nancy and Irene.

He was a quiet man who started life during the “Great Depression” and lived with seven other brothers and sisters in Somerville.

Without complaint for many many years, he endured great pain caused by a serious back injury while voluntarily serving in the military for four years during the Korean War.

He was independent and self-reliant in his efforts to always provide for his family. He maintained and renovated numerous single family homes for them in Malden from the 1950’s through the 1990’s.

If there is a heaven, he is in it but he will be missed long and hard by his family.

He was pre-deceased by his extremely loving wife of 48 years and wonderful mother of their children, Peggy (King) Davis of Somerville-Malden and his daughter Brenda Davis of Malden-Everett and is also survived by an extended family, the closest of which includes his mother, Eleanor Ash of Somerville, who will soon be 101 years old, his  brothers and sisters, Paul, Buddy (deceased), Nancy and her husband, Bob DiLoretto, Irene, Eleanor, Mary (deceased) and Joan. His immediate family includes his children: Donna Davis of Malden-Saugus, John Davis of Malden-Florida, Francis “Frank” Davis Jr. Malden-Revere, his wife Angela Davis and their son, Francis “Frankie” III, Helen Davis, and by his two loving grandchildren, Jenna Davis of Everett-Texas and John Hammersley of Malden.

In lieu of flowers, etc, please consider a donation of any size which will be appreciated and will help those young students of need and merit at B.C.
