OBITUARY

Chavelo Davila

March 24, 1963April 2, 2021

Chavelo "Chevy" Davila, my loving father, an incredible grandfather, loyal brother and a good friend to all who knew him passed away at the age of 58 on Good Friday, April 2, 2021 after an extremely hard-fought battle with complications of COVID-19.

Chevy is survived by his daughter, Priscilla; his son-in-law, David; his grandchildren, Katelyn, Jackson and Carson; his brothers, Rudy, Reynaldo, Adolph, Johnny and Gilbert; his sister, Olga; his sisters-in-law Tina, Rebecca, Silvia and MaryLou; 11 nieces and nephews; and a growing number of great-nieces and great-nephews. He is predeceased by his parents, Pascual and Esther Davila; his brother, Adolfo; and Priscilla's mother, Diana (Phillips).

He was born on March 24, 1963 in Casa Grande, raised in Stanfield, and was a life-long resident of Arizona. He graduated from Casa Grande Union High School in 1981 and worked at Schreiber Foods, Inc., a dairy production plant for 30 years as a specialist of many things, but especially evaporators.

My dad was an extremely devoted father and grandfather, taking part in every life event, big or small and no matter how mundane, of our lives. He loved talking with me about life, faith, work and the grandkids over a warm cup of coffee or an ice-cold margarita. He enjoyed watching his Arizona teams, the Cardinals and Diamondbacks, play ball, but loved nothing more than watching and cheering along the sidelines as Katelyn played volleyball and Jackson played baseball. He always looked forward to his morning walks, trampoline jumps, movie dates, and cat naps with his youngest grandson, Carson. He was a problem-solver who often took on difficult and unwanted projects at work and was always working on something around the house. He was also a spiritual man, who taught me to seek God first, and loved listening to Christian worship music.

He will be deeply missed by and forever in the hearts of his family, friends and all of those that knew him. Service details will be shared as soon as possible and streaming will be available for all.

Chevy and I were friends for just over 20 years. Chevy was a great friend and stand up guy, a true gentlemen. We would meet when time allowed for dinner and margaritas even though we'd say we are trying to lose weight. We talked about everything under the sun that didn't matter but the things I know that mattered to him were his grandkids (family). His face would light up and he would shyly smile with his big ole grin when talking about his grandkids. He had such a good heart. He fought a good fight but now he can run and frolic in all that heaven has to offer. To Chevy, this is not goodbye, "it's until we meet again." Rest in Peace dear friend - you will be fondly remembered as a "Classic 58 Chevy." To the family, may God comfort you during your grieving process. My heartfelt sympathy to all who knew and loved Chevy.

Me (Sandra ‘Miller’ Apodaca) and my husband, Tony Apodaca, both grew-up with Chavelo as our neighbor in Stanfield. We were so sad and surprised to hear about his passing. He really was a great guy. May you Rest In Peace Chavelo.

We met at Stanfield School and he's always been kind to me, gave uplifting advice, encouragement, and he is sorely missed...I miss our talks! He's one of the kindest man I know. I can never recall a moment where he was cruel or raised his voice. Rest in peace in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus Christ my friend
