On Saturday June 30, while surrounded by his loved ones, Charles “Jimmy” James Davis was called home to be with the Lord. Jimmy was born on January 13, 1956 in Manassas Virginia. He enjoyed many things such as fishing, NASCAR races, and doing mechanical work (or in his words “working on junk”).

At any given moment he was ready and willing to help anyone in need and always put other people first. Jimmy will be remembered by his wife, Janet; his children, Jimmy Jr., Julie (Jake) Orlikoff, Jamie (Jimmie) Whitehead, Jennie, Jeremiah, and Jordan; his seven grandchildren; his brothers and sisters; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Louise Davis. Jimmy will be deeply missed by all who knew him. The family will receive friends and loved ones from 6:00 to 8:00pm on Thursday, July 5, 2018 at Mullins and Thompson Funeral Service, Stafford.

Dad. It has been 2 months and 6 days since you left. I think about you every day and I miss you so much. I think about you every morning on my way to work and on my way home. I play you and mom's song when I am home alone and while I make dinner. Nicc says things all the time, and they are the same words and phrases you used to say to me and it's really weird. I think you guys would have got along great and I wish you could have gotten to know each other better. I find myself talking about you all the time now. When patients come in to my work I tell them "my dad used to do that" or "hey, that's what my dad used to say". I usually don't mention that you are not with me anymore, because you totally still are. I see you in everything, everywhere, and it's crazy cool. I miss you, Dad. I am still thinking about you and I wish I could call to tell you that. I love you.

Jimmy first word that comes to mind is a fighter. He was like a rock. I could stand here and list all the ways I admire by doing him. But I would like to share a few reasons why I admire Jimmy . First and foremost was his love and commitment for Janet Julie, Jamie,Jennie ,Jeremiah ,Jordan and Jimmy Jr And for his grandchildren. He was committed to making them HAPPY. If it was important to them then it BECAME important to him. They were happily married for 40 plus years, and during his last days, his only concern was for Janet’s well being, and not his own. Few weeks before he came home from uva he looked at Janet and said Miah will take care of you that broke my Heart. He was a man who worried about everyone else. He was a man of integrity. He was a giving man . He was always helping other people even strangers. If you’re here today, and I thank you for that, that means that he touched your life in some way or another. That means that you’d miss him in some way or another.

I remember when I was a little girl sitting on the deck and watching all the neighborhood kids ride bikes. You came out,looked at mom and said, "Go get that girl a bike." You taught me how to ride, and I loved it. Fast forward to years later and I'm sitting behind the wheel and you were right beside me. I looked at you(not sure if I was more scared or excited) and you said, "Baby, go ahead and give it a little gas".....and just liked that bike, I Ioved it. I am really going to miss you dad but I know you're watching over me now and will be with me for every ride I take in life.
I Love You Daddy!

Chuck, I really don't know where to start. Your the kindest, gentlest and most caring man I know. You accepted me into your family sixteen years ago. You put faith and trust in me to take out your second babygirl. You introduced me to your family and your world.... You took me out on the power lines, to the river lot, worked on junk (and laughed at me because I always wore my gloves), introduced me to all of your closest friends and just spent time with me. You treated me like I was your own son. We split firewood, went to races and football games and even though we had different drivers and football teams we still had a blast! I love you and will always miss you. You are the greatest father-in-law a man could ever ask for. God called home a "Thoroughbred" and there will never be another like you! I will do my best to take care of "Maw" and the family. Love you Chuck!

Jimmy I have so many favorite memories of you. There were so many fun times and you will be remembered for being kind, carefree and happy. I thank you for bringing me to Ricky's and you will always be his brother. You loved life and you loved your family. Janet I am so sorry for your loss and I know he will be missed so much. Sending prayers for you, your children and your grand children. You will always be his "Little Dumpling." I know the past months have been very hard for you but in time you will also remember the happy times you shared with him. Love you!

I will always have good memories of my little brother Jimmy. He had so many friends and always made people laugh. He was a prankster as well and you never knew what he would do next. He always had my back and stuck up for me if someone was picking on me. I have been blessed to call him my brother. He was an awesome person, husband, father, uncle, son and touched many lives with his generous spirit. I will see him again in heaven and what a day that will be. Rest in peace dear brother
