Obituary for Douglas “Doug” James Davis
Douglas James “Doug” Davis, of Trenholm Rd., Columbia, SC passed away March 30, 2018. Doug was a timely Christmas present, born on Christmas Day in 1931, the only child of William McGuire and Lunette Williams Davis. He was educated in Columbia city schools. Like most young men who grew up in the post-Depression era of 1930’s-40’s life wasn’t always easy, but he was an innovative, spirited survivor, always finding a way to earn income. Early on he held a few interesting jobs, once as a truck driver at Fort Jackson, and later a restaurateur. His long term trade and craft was as a sales associate and buyer for the iconic Sessions Department Store in Lexington, SC where he developed many friendships. He retired when the store closed in 1996. In retirement, with its accompanying boredom, Doug felt the need for something to do to stay busy, so he went to work for Greenlawn Funeral Home for ten enjoyable years. Witty, frugal and fiercely independent, Doug’s favorite pastime was love and care of his pet Schnauzers, Boots, Josh and Joey. He is survived by cousins, Myrna Jennings-Hutchings and her children, Lisa Gibson, James Jennings, Jr. and Richard Jennings; and William M. McCaskill and his children, William M. McCaskill, Jr., Brenda McCaskill Hamlin, Dianne Calandra, Clifford McCaskill and James McCaskill. He also leaves many friends who will miss him dearly. Doug was a member of First Baptist Church in Columbia, SC.
The Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel of Thompson Funeral Home at Greenlawn Memorial Park, 845 Leesburg Rd at 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 5, 2018 with a reception to follow in the funeral home. In lieu of flowers memorials may be sent to Oliver Gospel Mission, 1100 Taylor St., Columbia, SC 29201; or to a charity of one’s choice.
