A Bouquet of Flowers

Floyd Davis
December 01, 1931 - October 21, 2019

Floyd Davis, 87, peacefully returned to his heavenly home on October 20, 2019 at home with his family. His devotion to his family and very strong Christian belief in God gave him peace.

Floyd was the 11th child born to the late Edward Davis and Rosalind Williams Davis on December 1, 1931. Floyd accepted Christ at an early age. He was baptized at the St. Peters Baptist Church in Pelican, LA.

Floyd moved to California and lived with his older brother in San Francisco where he attended S. San Francisco public schools. He worked for United Airlines for several years before taking a job with the City & County of San Francisco until he retired after 36 years.

Floyd met Melverdia Lucas while she was visiting St. John Baptist Church where Floyd was a member. In later years, Floyd told his son that when he first met his mother, he knew she would make a good wife; he was obviously right because they were married for 63 years! To this union, four children were born, Floyd, Gregory and twins, Dennis & Denise.

Floyd was a faithful member of Starlight Missionary Baptist Church for many years until he later united with Macedonia Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Elward Thomas where he remained a faithful & dedicated member until his health failed.

Floyd's passion for sports was evident with his involvement in coaching his sons Little League baseball teams. He was fondly known as "Mr. D" in the neighborhood. He became a reliable member of the Umpires Association after his sons no longer played Little League.

Floyd leaves behind his wife of 63 years, four children: Floyd (Vicki), Andra (Marsha), Dennis and Denise (Joe), five grandchildren who he adored and they adored him: Kanisha (Carly), Dennis, Brandon, Bryan (Dominique) and Desiree, two sisters-in-law: Victoria Drayton (San Francisco) and Bernice Shearer (Daly City), one brother-in-law Joseph Lucas (El Sobrante), one special niece, Ollis Mae (Long Beach) and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.
********

You were the first man in my life and the first to leave a huge hole in my heart. You were the kindest, most gentle and forgiving, God loving man. Even when your patience was tested I NEVER in 58 years ever heard a bad word come out of your mouth, never saw you pick up a drink or smoke. You never said anything bad about anyone. I loved hearing that I was a "daddy's girl" because I was. Words cannot express how much I will miss you and hear your "Heyyy" whenever anyone would walk through the door. Rest in peace daddy - You will always be my hero!

Your daughter
