In memory of
Peter Dixon "Pete" Davis
Peter Dixon 'Pete' Davis DVM Nov. 14, 1940 - Jan. 14, 2021 Pete Davis was born in Portland, Ore., in 1940 to Clink and Ashby Davis. He was the oldest of four children. When Pete was 9, the family moved to their new home (The Ranch) on 2 acres overlooking what is now Tryon Creek State Park. Some of Pete's best memories were of his years growing up on The Ranch. Pete was capable, strong, and adventurous. He knew how to hunt, fish, and get on in the woods. He knew about animals and birds and loved to explore. Pete attended Collins View Grade School and graduated from Wilson High, where he was on the honor roll and captain of the swim team. He attended Stanford on a scholarship and then on to Washington State University, where he got his degree in Veterinary Medicine. It was at vet school that he met lifetime friends with whom he would go on fishing trips to Alaska or hunting trips to Montana or along the Snake River. He also loved duck hunting at the Charlton Duck Club on Sauvie Island. Pete was most at home in his vet clinic in St. Johns, Ore., where he cared for people's pets for over 50 years. A friend of Pete's said he will never forget Pete's strength and compassion when caring for their pet and "He cared for us as much as for her." Pete was an old school vet. He worked nights and weekends and made house calls. Pete's clients were like a second family to him and he always went the extra mile to take care of them and their pets. His favorite thing to say to his clients was "Get out there and enjoy the sunshine." He truly loved seeing people enjoy the day with their animals. Pete loved his family and friends and he loved the Lord. Pete did not know how to retire. The Lord took him to heaven to rest and enjoy eternity. Pete is survived by his wife, Karen; former wife, Ursula; daughter, Julie; brother, Steve (Mary); sisters, Margie (Bob), and Molly (Tom); his nephews and nieces. A memorial service will be held at a future date. Please sign the online guest book. Donations in Pete's honor may be made to Portland Audubon.
