Pomeroy,Ohio
12/12/1955-5/15/2017

Gregory Carl Davis, 61 of Cullums Rd, Pomeroy, OH passed away in an accident on May 15, 2017. He was born Dec. 12, 1955 to the late Roger W. Davis and Iris Palmer Davis in Pontiac, MI.

Greg loved his land and all of creation. He believed that every living thing had a right to its life. Greg's sense of humor and honest character put people at ease. He made it his priority to make people laugh, pulling them out of their shells and into human connection.

If you ever needed to find him, just go outside and follow the music. You'd likely find yourself arriving to the pond or the hill, to an engaging conversation about the deeper meanings in life, or to his comedic commentary on any given topic. It gave him great joy to be with people at the heart level. His spelling was a mess, but his vocabulary was immense, making it easy to articulate his spiritual and philosophical thoughts. And sometimes he would seamlessly weave classic rock lyrics into what he was saying.

Friends and family knew they could always rely on Greg for help with their projects, as he would willingly offer his creative thinking and craftsman skills. Kids and animals took an instant liking to him. He invited his younger friends to be active participants in the task at hand, and he affectionately referred to them as "Partner." He will be dearly missed by many.

Greg is preceded in death by his parents, Roger and Iris Davis, and by his father-in-law Roy L. Holter. He is survived by former wife, Jan Holter Davis; daughter Tricia (Garland) Tam, Charlotte, NC; Zachary C. Davis, Pomeroy, OH; 3 grandsons - Carter Tam 2.5yrs, Owen Tam 3mo, and Cannon Davis 3yrs; and Cannon's mother Bonnielou Allen. He is also survived by 3 siblings - Steven (Debbie) Davis, Bath, OH; Sherry (Kelly) Hayman, Portland, OH; and Rob (Patsy) Davis, Seattle, WA; mother-in-law Pat "Patty" Holter; sister-in-law Ann (Rick) Munafo; and brothers-in-law Alan (Kay) Holter and Ed (Jan) Holter; special childhood friend Mark Lisowski, his dear neighbor friend Tiffany Harder Daniels, and his faithful dog Lucy.

A private celebration of Greg's life will be held at a later date.
