Bob was born on January 28, 1937, to George and Gladys Davis in Coloma, Michigan. He grew up in Watervliet where he attended school and lettered in football, basketball and baseball in high school. He was a starter for the 1954 basketball team that played in the state semi-finals. Bob's love of playing sports never ended. He was an avid bowler and was part owner and manager of Coloma Lanes. In 1995 he was inducted into the Blossomland Men's Bowling Association Hall of Fame. In his retirement Bob enjoyed golf, bowling, fishing and gardening.
Bob's greatest joy came in spending time with his loving family which includes: his high school sweetheart and wife of 64 years Alora (Howard) Davis; two sons Keith (Uma) Davis of Indiana and Kenneth (Patcharin) Davis of New Jersey; six grandchildren Jonathon Davis, Sarah Davis, Joshua Davis, Kyle Davis, Kevin Davis, and Stephanie (Huff) Blocker; two great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
