Lawrence Timmy Davis, Sr., of Fairfield, Maine passed away quietly in his home on Monday, June 27, 2011, after a long struggle with emphysema. He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

He was predeceased in 1994 by his wife of 28 years, Theresa Davis; his brother Doug Davis; his sisters Shirley Emery, Minnie Rodrique, Barbara Gilley, and Carol Davis. He is survived by his five children, Chris Davis and his wife, Joy and their daughter, Paige (16), Cindy Lowell and her husband, Ron and their daughters, Hannah (10) and Haley (8), Larry Davis and his wife, Laura and their children, Sara (16) and Colby (13), Donna Davis, and Kim Hawkes and her children, Josh (15) and Sierra (12); two sisters, Betty Crommett, and June Ames and her husband, Eddie; two brothers, Billy Davis and his wife, Sheila, and Dean Davis and his wife, Sandra; his sister in-law Gail Davis, and a very special and dear sister in-law, Gloria Bishop; and his brothers in-law, Lawrence and Bernard Bishop; many nieces and nephews; and his good buddies, Clem and Butch. He was educated in Fairfield schools. He then entered the United States Marine Corps, and served during the Korean War. He was honorably discharged with the rank of Staff Sergeant. After being discharged he was employed by Lucas Tree Company, and then as a steel worker, and lastly as a self-employed carpenter. Dad was a proud member of the American Legion Grover Hinckley, Post # 14, and the V.F.W. Fairfield Memorial Post # 6924, where he worked on funding things like the new Fairfield Playground (Operation Playground), and also, prior to his death, he was working on funding the new upcoming Basketball Court in Fairfield, Pine Tree Camp, as well as, the Make-A-Wish Foundation. We were blessed and proud to have him for our Dad. His family meant everything to him. He did a lot of good things, privately. You could count on him and his word. A lot of folks only knew him as ornery, but if you really knew him, youd know better. You always knew where you stood with him because he said what he thought. We will miss him saying Keep the Peace! and his wave as we left. A heartfelt thank you with sincere gratitude from the Davis family goes out to hospice and the entire staff for the laughs and wonderful care they gave to home and his family.
