Ron R. Davis age 64 of Springfield, passed away on March 16, 2018 in Nashville surrounded by his family.
Ronald Russel Davis was born on November 24, 1953 in Madison, TN to Marion and Christine Davis.
He was an entrepreneur and jack of all trades, he worked flipping houses doing most of the work himself. Ron had a generous heart, and never failed to pick up his tools and help those who needed help. He spent many weeks going on mission trips building churches and helping those locally through the Robertson County Baptist Association Response Team. When Ron wasn’t working, which wasn’t often, he loved spending time with his friends and family. He enjoyed spending time in Gatlinburg during family reunions. He would say a vacation isn’t a vacation unless you’re at the beach and one of the best vacations was time spent at the Outer Banks.
Ron will forever be remembered as a loving son, husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Christine Davis.
