Jacob J. Davis “Jake” was born June 23, 1943 to the late James O. Davis and Deaconess Lelia L. Davis.

Jake was called into eternal rest on Sunday, May 5, 2019. He was preceded in death by his late sister Lillian M. Davis.

Jake was a graduate of Central High School and the Apex Beauty Salon School. After serving in the military, Jake returned home and started working for The Greater Richmond Transit Company. He truly enjoyed spending time with family and friends; especially with his grandchildren, who loved their “Papa Jake.” His hobbies included but were not limited to watching the news, listening to music, playing cards, and eating his sister Sallie’s cooking.

Jacob leaves to cherish his fond memories, his wife, Bernadine Davis of Richmond, VA; sister, Sallie Trent (Russell) of Goochland, VA, brother, Richard Davis (Nancy) of Richmond, VA; two sons, Barry C. Davis and Lamont J.J. Davis (Stephanie) of Richmond, VA; one daughter, Latisha Ray (Damon) of Richmond, VA; five grandchildren, Latera Snead, Leah Davis, Ja-Mia Castaner, Kayla Davis, and Christopher Davis; and two godchildren, Lanier Turner, L’Tia Snead and a host of nieces and nephews. A special thanks to Audwin Davis and Mrs. Virginia Roane for their dedication and care during his greatest time of need.
