Mr. Edgar Eugene Davis, passed away in Atlanta, GA on Monday, October 2, 2017 where he had resided for the past 20 plus years. He was formerly a long time resident of Tacoma, Washington where he served the community and his church family for many years.
Edgar Eugene Davis was born on July 23, 1935 in Powellton, West Virginia in an area which he called “coal country”. Edgar was of born to Deacon Haynes L. Davis and Rosa Lee Davis. He was one of 11 children, 9 boys and 2 girls.

Edgar or Dave Davis as many called him served our country well. Dave served for 22 plus years in the United States Army. He was stationed to many areas across the globe to include, Germany, Korea, and Vietnam. In his travels he has touched and made a considerable impact in the lives of many people. At his entry into the military, there were no computers. When asked about his early years of service he said, “I was classified as a computer because I was very good with numbers. When computers came in it was my job was to check the computer.” In several duty stations he was assigned to secret missions.
Edgar Davis was awarded many military high honors and medals to include: National Defense Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Bronze Star, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal with Palm and the Vietnamese Service Medal. However, his greatest achievement was moving through the ranks and retiring from service as a Command Sergeant Major stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington.
Beyond his military service was his deep desire to serve his Lord and Savior. He spent a lifetime serving the church wherever he was. He worked tireless as an ordained deacon in both Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church in Tacoma, Washington and Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Georgia. He truly loved the Lord and was dedicated to honoring the Lord with his service.
