Mr. Eddie Davis was born in Sumter County, South Carolina on February 23, 1939, to the late Florence Lee Davis and George Davis. He departed this earthly life on April 30, 2020, in Columbia, South Carolina. He was oldest of eight siblings.
He attended Ebenezer High School in Dalzell, South Carolina. He moved to Washington, DC where he became a butcher at a factory. He later moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he managed a Laundermat until his health began to fail.
Eddie was always a person that you could get along with and never left you without a smile or a joke. He will always be remembered for his smooth dressy styles and never seen without his hat and shades. He will truly be missed.
In addition to his parents, Eddie was preceded in death by a brother, George Davis, Jr. and two sisters, Barbara S. Palmer and Elease Davis.
He leaves to cherish his memories, two sisters, Mary D. Glover of Rembert, SC and Carrie D. Dixon of Camden, SC; two brothers, Teddy Dixon of Philadelphia, PA and Snyder (Grace) Davis of Rembert, SC; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
