William Jeffrey “Jeff” Davis, 56, of Boones Mill passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, June 1, 2020. He was predeceased by two brothers, James Davis & Ronald Murphy; his Grandparents, many beloved Aunts & Uncles and other family members. He is survived by his children, Jeffrey W. Davis and his wife Janet, Madison Davis & Dailyn Davis; his parents, Nancy & Thomas Murphy, David & Diane Davis; his siblings, Melissa & Philip Fobare, Janet & Denise Murphy, Shelia & Mike Benson, Ann Akers & Chris Tolley; plus many nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Jeff was born in Roanoke, VA and was a graduate of William Fleming High School. He spent his early years delivering newspapers, playing his guitar, working on cars and riding dirt bikes. He lived in various cities before settling back in this area in Boones Mill. He found a place at Metwood Building Solutions as a welder and spent time on weekends helping out on the farm of his boss & friend, Mike Callahan. He was a talented welder and very creative and quick to come up with solutions for problems he encountered at work. He loved making music and was a gifted guitar & banjo player. His latest undertaking was the Mandolin and he was on his way to perfecting that as well. He loved to spend time with his family playing music, eating and just talking. Jeff had a special relationship with his niece, Olivia. He encouraged her love of horses and was responsible for her first riding lessons at the age of 5. Jeff loved to express his faith in the Lord through Gospel music. He was very loved by his family and we will miss him deeply.
Due to concerns for COVID 19, the family is only having a graveside service which will be held 2:00 PM, Monday, June 8, 2020, at Cedar Lawn Memorial Park. The family will gather at Oakey’s North Chapel and leave to go in procession to the cemetery at 1:30 on Monday. Online condolences may be made at www.oakeys.com.

Jeff wasn't just a cuz, he was a friend too! So many good memories!! From the time we were little, we laughed together, cried together and yes sometimes didn't agree but still.
And as a musician, he never realized how good he was! I can still hear him sing in my mind.
Miss you cuz! Play music with the ones that are with you now baby!
