Dennis Joe Davis
December 13, 1948 – February 10, 2019
Dennis Joe Davis, age 70 of Harrison, passed away on Sunday, February 10, 2019 at Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc, Michigan. He was born on December 13, 1948 in North Springs, West Virginia to parents James “Blaine” and Esther (Lester) Davis. In 1988 he married the love of his life, Jean (Haywood), and celebrated 28 years of marriage until her passing in 2015. Dennis was a proud member of Operating Engineers Union for 45 years and had been an operating engineer for 30 years, working at Holly Sand and Gravel and retiring from Citizens Disposal. He was also a member of the American Legion 40 and 8 Club. Dennis loved outdoor activities: fishing, riding his 4-wheeler, and trail rides. He never met a stranger, loved everyone he met, and loved joking around and “stirring the pot.” He will be missed by all that knew him. Dennis is survived by his daughters: Mary Davis and Denise Davis; Aunt June Runyon; several nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law; and his dog, Harlee Davis who he loved so much. He was preceded in death by both parents; wife, Jean Davis; and brothers: Densil Davis and Ronald “Eddie” Davis. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 from 12-8pm at Hill Funeral Home, 11723 S. Saginaw St., Grand Blanc, Michigan. A burial of Dennis’ and Jean’s cremated remains and a graveside service will take place in the spring at Evergreen Cemetery.
