Jerry Neil Davis
Jerry Neil Davis Jerry Neil Davis, age 78, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 1, 2021 at Select Specialty Hospital in Memphis, TN after battling COVID for six weeks. He was born at home on April 9th, 1942 in Pemiscot County to Annie and Jimmy Davis. Jerry was a devout member of Collierville First Baptist Church where he served as a deacon for over two decades. Before enjoying retirement with his dear wife Carolyn, Jerry worked as a banker at First Tennessee Bank for thirty-nine years. Jerry was an avid fisherman and when in doubt, he was on a river somewhere where he would remain until the sun went down. He pursued his passion every day that he could and was a true fisher of men. Carolyn knew him as a faithful husband of fifty-five years. His children, Lisa and Brad, knew him as a Godly, loving father. His seven grandchildren knew him as a doting grandfather. His family knew him as both a jokester and as someone who was always there for anyone in need. All knew him as a king amongst men, a pillar of strength, and a person who was never without a smile and a warm handshake. As a faithful follower of Christ, we know Jerry has arrived in his eternal home with his precious Lord and Savior. He passed from Earth into the arms of Jesus. From the banks of heaven, he casts his line. Eternally at peace. Eternally content. Eternally in our hearts. Jerry is survived by his wife and two children. Flowers can be sent to John W. German Funeral Home or donations can be made in Jerry's name to Ethnos360 (New Tribes Ministries) where he spent many summers serving. The funeral service for friends and family, officiated by Pastor Chuck Herring, was held at John W. German Funeral Home in Steele, MO at 2 p.m. on Tuesday the 5th of January. Interment was in Mount Zion Cemetery in Steele, Missouri, with full military honors. Pallbearers were: Brad and Drew Davis, Brad and Caleb Hilliard, Brian Hicks, and Jacob Doan. John W. German Funeral Home of Steele in charge of services.
