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.

    When anyone talks about having a good neighbor you didn’t have to look any further than Ronnie. Rest in peace Ronnie I love you.

    Jim and I send our condolences and prayers to the family. We’ve always commented on what a hard worker Ron was and how he was there to do anything the church needed in the way of opening doors or a fix-it job. His smile and kindness will be missed.

    I will never forget you Ronnie! You always brightened my morning walks (with Lucy and Scruffy) with a wave, smile, and conversation. I’ll especially remember how you, along with your brother Dick, helped tear down my condo to the studs after the flood. You’re no longer in pain, RIP.

    My condolences and sincere sympathy to Mr. Davis, Glenda & Dick, and the entire family . I worked with Mrs. Davis at Grace Baptist Church years ago, and met Ron and remember when he and Gayle were married. What a special family. Ron was always a happy person.

    Ron was certainly one of the “good guys”. He was so supportive of the children’s ministry at First Baptist Church, helping joyfully moving tables, finding extension cords, hanging decorations, carrying heavy items in and out of the church for me and others, etc., etc., etc.!!! When I would thank him, he always responded with, “Thank YOU!” He loved to joke with everyone and was always smiling and laughing. My granddaughter thought Mr. Ron was so very special and such a nice man. He really was! I was so thankful for his thoughtfulness; he even came to visit me right after my knee replacement and in his kidding way often reminded me how I didn’t make any sense right after surgery. Many times when I had to go to church to do something for children’s ministry I would find Ron working and listening to Christian music on his radio. He was truly one of the “good guys”. It was a blessing to know and work with him. Prayers of love, comfort, and peace to Gayle and his family.
