Aubrey Lee Davis "Mert" March 4th, 1928 - August 23rd, 2021
Aubrey Lee Davis "Mert" went to be with the Lord on August 23rd, 2021, after blessing his family and friends for 93 years. Growing up he discovered his passion for music and carried on the family tradition of playing the drums. He loved jazz music and in his later years he could be found playing the harmonica on the front porch.
He worked on the Railroad for over 40 years and made many wonderful friends. One friend said that he never heard Mert say anything mean to someone in all the years they worked together.
Mert loved food, fishing, and hunting. He was an artist and handyman. His son would often say when his Dad fixed something it was better than the original. But more than hobbies, Mert's real passion was for his family.
He was married to the love of his life; Pasty Joy Smith for 72 years. He dearly loved his son, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He was a greatexample of a son, husband, father, grandfather and Christian.
He is survived by his wife, Patsy Davis; son, Bruce (Cindy) Davis; grandchildren, Rachael (Daniel) Zecher, Solomon (Aidan) Davis, Jeremy (Kathryn) Davis, Micah Davis, and Nathanael Davis; great-grandchildren, Ada, Cora, Eleanor Zecher, and Bliss Davis.
