Years back I was talking to my mom on the phone and she mentioned that she was going to her first Nascar race with her "friend". My protective son instincts kicked in and I asked her who this man friend was. She told me it was Wayne Davis. I said Nubby?! From back in the day? She assured me I had nothing to worry about, that they were just friends. Well Nascar races turned into Nats games, and Redskins games and concerts and so on. They definitely weren't just friends. And in the months that past, I could see a happiness in my mom that I hadn't seen in a long time. It was clear that Wayne and my mom were meant for each other. One afternoon I received a call from Wayne saying he wanted to meet me for lunch. There he cried telling me how much he loved my mom and how happy she makes him. He then asked my permission to marry my mom and take care of her for me. It was an easy decision and I only wish he asked me many years before. We love you and are so thankful that you came back into our lives. Thank you Wayne for taking care of my mom and making her so happy again.

The absolute best big brother ever.
A lot like our mom you were one of the most generous, giving and loving people in my life and I will miss you immensely.
I am so happy that you finally found the love of your life, Mary and lived your best and happiest life ever with her. She and her beautiful family came into our lives about 5 years ago and we have been so incredibly blessed ever since. I know how happy they all made you.
The only comfort at this moment is knowing you are somewhere else surrounded by people who love you very much .
Love you so much "Big"

What a marvelous picture! I met Wayne a couple of years ago when he came to my house to pick up a dozen signs I’d made for mom. He exuded instant warmth, making me feel like I’d known him all my life. Just sad I didn’t have more time to know him better. RIP, cool dude🥰

Wayne was a good and hardworking man. He loved his family fiercely and served my mom, his wife, selflessly and joyfully. He shared my love for good southern cookin and sweet tea. And he always thought of me when he took my mom antique shopping when he saw something he knew I would like. He nicknamed my first born "cheeks" and gave my second born his love for cars and trucks. He generously supported our adoption and couldn't wait for the day we would be able to bring our baby home. We will share with her what he meant to our family and how much he already loved her. Our hearts deeply grieve this loss and thank God He chose him to be part of our family. We love and miss you so much, Pop Pop. We look forward to the day we see you again.

Wayne was our good friend and neighbor for many years. He lived right across the road from us for 27 years. Never in that time did an unkind word pass between us. We saw each other almost every day, so Wayne almost always knew what we were up to and we knew what he was up to! Wayne was a worker and so were we.

Since Wayne and Mary married, our knowledge and appreciation of his family and life has deepened. In our many strolls up and down Wolf Run Shoals Road, we liked nothing better than seeing Wayne and Mary sitting on that porch, and we always stopped to discuss our memories of early days in Clifton and Falls Church, and of the Loys who lived at the end of the road.

We can still visualize Wayne, in his glory sitting on dad harris’ tractor cutting the grass on great falls street or helping in the garden then bringing vegetables in to eat.. how Wayne loved grandma Harris’ cooking.. he was a good husband , caring son-in-law and a great dad .. one good, kind human being!!
You will surely be missed by your family and friends! Rest In Peace Wayne Davis.

Wayne has always been considered Uncle Wayne to me since I was young! He was the man who made me the Redskins fan I am today. Every time I would go to work with my mom I’d always wait around in anticipation for Uncle Wayne to come visit no matter what!

It’s terrible to hear about Wayne's passing, we grew up together and were best friends for many years. You and your family are in my heart and mind. May our Lord bless and comfort you during this time of grief.
