Cleow Harold Davis, Jr. entered this world on January 26th, 1954 in Pontiac, Michigan and left this world on May 29th, 2021. He was the first child of Cleow Harold Davis, Sr. and Lillie Mae (Ketchum) and his mother was so proud to name him after his father. The family lived in Rochester Hills, Michigan where they set their roots as their family grew. In 1955, Michael Lynn was born and Harold naturally stepped into a big brother role, always looking out for him, as he continued to do until Michael’s passing in 2019. Harold became a big brother once again, when the family finally had a daughter, Bessie Allison Davis in 1966. He held his role as her brother close to his heart and they shared a beautiful relationship throughout their lives. In his last days he promised to send so many pennies from heaven that she would need an umbrella.
Raised in the Pentecostal church, Harold and Michael both were anointed with the gift of music at a very early age. Harold could play just about any instrument he picked up and was able to play by ear. Playing music, singing and being with his many uncles, aunts, cousins and twice-removed’s was once of the best parts of our family summer. I think I can speak for many of us that those are times we all remember with so much love in our hearts. Before he passed, he spoke of our family that has already went to heaven. Grandpa George Davis, his own mom, his aunts. They were waiting for him, whenever he was ready.
Harold became a father in 1973 to his daughter, Jennifer LeeMae Davis with his first wife, Sherry (Wyman). They named their daughter after both of her grandmothers. Right away Harold shared his love of music with her, from strumming lullaby’s, to walking the floor with her as a baby and singing James Taylor songs. She was blessed to look just like her mother but with her father’s incredible sense of humor and sharp wit. She is also writing this. I love you more dad.
Then in 1979, Harold became the proud father of a s
