OBITUARY

Danny Wayne Davis

July 9, 1957August 8, 2019

The man, the myth, the legend, Danny W. Davis (aka Dad, Poppy, Granddaddy, Guggles) was born in New Orleans, LA on July 9, 1957 and joined our Heavenly Father while in San Antonio, TX on August 8, 2019. If we could only use one word to describe Danny, it would be love. He loved God, his family, and life. He continually smiled as if nothing was ever wrong. He had a heart of gold and adored his family. Danny was loved by all who knew him. Danny spent countless hours searching for the perfect proverb, bible verse, or famous saying to pass on to his children and grandchildren. He knew they stopped reading them, but it made him feel good that at least they thought about him when they opened their email or saw the text. He loved to coach. All three children were blessed with his ability and drive. He continued to coach from the stands with his oldest grandson in baseball. He loved to see them all succeed on the playing field and in life. His dogs, Mocha, Midnight, Cooper, and grand dogs Lexus, and Lieutenant, brought him such joy. Danny adored his wife, Michele, who he met while they were attending the University of Houston. There wasn't a day that went by that he wasn't complimenting her and reminding Michele how much he loved her. He enjoyed going to the casino, UH sporting events, and traveling with her. It was always an adventure when they were together. Danny is survived by his best friend and wife of 38 years, Michele, daughter Heather, son Timothy and wife Allison, daughter Meredith, and 4 precious grandchildren, Jason, Kristen, Berkeley, and Mick. He will be dearly missed but we know we will see him in time.

What a beautiful tribute to an absolutely amazing man. I can't believe he is gone. He was and always will be my most favorite uncle. He was an incredible father, you could see how much he loved his family every time he spoke about them, he would literally light up! To know him was to love him! I'm pretty sure that saying was made up because of him!

I met Danny when I was 8 in Atlanta, Georgia and from that moment on, I knew we would be brothers. I remember when his dad passed away at age 9. It was so sad for all of us. We played in high school football, baseball and basketball together. We were the “Siamese Twins”, nobody could beat us 2 on 2 in basketball. We were inseparable until he moved away in his sophomore year because Ruth got remarried and Lou stepped in as his step father and moved the family. And I was so happy for him because he got out to a better place, Houston. Danny was an inspiration to me as a father, a friend, a husband and gave me advice all the time. Danny is a very positive, caring, loving person and he will be missed by everyone that knew him. My children love and miss him. He was Uncle Danny to my kids. And I named my son after Danny.

With love & we will miss you
Tim, Daniel and Haley

I had the opportunity to get to know " Coach Danny" when our daughters played on the Houston Hotshots. The team traveled out of town quite a bit and Danny and I often met up after the games to reflect on the day's events , the team, current politics, and life in general. As I remember , we solved most of the world's problems in those talks :)

Coach Danny was all those things we aspire to be - a great father, fair , loving , good natured, a talented coach, liked by all, humorous , etc., etc., etc.

It was my honor to know him.

My families thoughts and prayers are with the Davis family.

Danny was a loving husband, father, grandfather and a terrific brother-in-law. He had a wonderful outlook on life, always upbeat, always positive with an infectious smile. When needed, he was always available. Seeing him with his kids, grandkids, dogs and grand dogs are the memories I will cherish.
Love and Hugs to the Davis family.
