Chester "Bobby Ray" Lee Davis
January 3, 1944 – October 3, 2019
Epitome of Life: My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26
Chester Lee Davis (Bobby Ray) born January 3, 1944 in High Lee, Louisiana to Climon and Johnnie Mae Edwards Davis. Bobby lived his life one day at a time here on earth but now he's safely home in Heaven. His words spoken to everyone were always soft, kind and loving. Standing in God's bright light where there is perfect joy and peace, he will constantly watch over us day and night and will forever remain in the hearts of his wife: whom he lovingly called "Jane", his son, Sean, his grandchildren, Sa-vonta, Mariah, Jayden and Jaylen; his brothers and sisters; a nephew: Melvin (Ken) Perry, who was a blessing to the family; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
We can shed tears because Bobby has gone or we can smile because he lived. We can close our eyes and pray that he will return or we can open them and see all that he has left. Our core is empty now for the reason of the void he filled, but it's also full because of the love he shared with us. It broke our hearts when he left us on Thursday, October 3, 2019, and for that reason a family shackle has been broken, but peaceful memories will remain until the chain has linked again.
We all live on borrowed time. People come and go so unexpectedly; we sometimes forget that nothing really lasts as long as we hoped they would. Losing someone as dear to us as Bobby Ray is a heartbreaking experience, but it's something we need to accept in order to continue on with our lives. He had such an enormous heart, which showed respect, a caring spirit and a personality everyone endeavors to own. His family and friends meant the world to him and there weren't too many outsiders who didn't end up being a comrade.
