Obituary for William R. Davis

William Reese Davis, age 96 at rest November 26, 2018. Beloved husband to the late Virginia Elizabeth Davis for 63 years. Loving father of Patrick (Colleen) Davis, Kathleen (Thomas) Miller, and the late William Jack Davis; beloved son of the late William and Janet Davis; fond grandfather of Christian (Chasidi), Michelle, Brittany, and William Morgan; great grandfather of William Reese, Thomas Ross, and Ryan Lynn; loving brother of Robert and the late Shelby, Jack, and Karl. William’s family played Kentucky folk music on WLS radio during the late 30’s and helped shape country music as we know it today. He served his country honorably during World War II while being deployed with the 3367 Signal Service Battalion, during the liberation of the Philippines and the China Burma India Campaign. “Bill” was best known for his wonderful guitar playing, surpassed only by his huge heart which touched everyone who ever came in contact with him. Tears for Bill outnumbered the snowflakes that fell on the day he died. Visitation will be Friday, November 30, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Cumberland Chapels 8300 W. Lawrence Ave. Norridge, IL 60706. Funeral services will begin Saturday at the funeral home at 9:00 a.m. until time of chapel service at 10:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Acacia Park Cemetery.
