of Jacksonville, AR

February 28, 1938 - April 6, 2022

Robert Edward Davis, 84, of Jacksonville, Arkansas, joined the angel band on April 6, 2022. He was born on a houseboat on the St. Francis River, February 28, 1938, and spent his early years on the river and in the Delta cotton fields. Robert married the love of his life in 1960. The following year, he entered the United States Air Force, from which he retired after twenty-one years of service. He then worked for the United States Postal Service for sixteen years. He filled his time playing guitar, writing songs, volunteering at nursing homes, studying God's word, and foremost, being the calm, guiding leader of his family.

Robert was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother who lived a truly sacrificial life. He leaves to cherish his memory his wife of 61 years, Gladys Paulette Clark Davis; two children, Robin Davis Monroe and Robert Edward Davis, Jr.; four grandchildren, Elijah Clark Davis (wife, Hannah), Ivy Monroe, Isaac Monroe, and Tess Monroe; four brothers, Scott Davis (wife, Lou), Lee Davis, John Davis and David Davis; five sisters, Fern Guidice, Martha Myers, Dorothy Baskins, Rachel Davis (husband, Lee Earl), and Ruby Rogers (husband, David); and many other family members and friends. He was preceded in death by one sister, Allene Colvin, and his parents, Otis and Agnes Davis.
