Obituary of Brian L. Davis
Brian L. Davis, 48, of Freeland, our loving, generous, inspirational, and most devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend went home to be with the Lord on the morning of Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at Covenant – Harrison. Brian was born in Bay City on August 13, 1968, the son of the former Cynthia Warmbier and Larry Davis. While speeding through the parking lot at the former Hampton Mall, Brian was stopped by the security guard on duty, Jill Banaszak. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on April 25, 1992. Throughout life, Brian was known for his excellent work ethic. He was employed by Jack’s Fruit & Meat Markets for over thirty years, where he was a respected manager. Brian was also a beach body coach and financial advisor. Brian always made sure his life was for the better and in service to others. He was a dedicated AA mentor and was known for his love of the Lord. Family always came first with Brian. He was most at peace when playing disc golf, having a bonfire in the backyard, or helping someone with an ongoing project. Every day of Brian’s was filled with an agenda to help those he loved. His love for his family and providing for them was unwavering and never ending. Brian was also a member of the Lions Club, a devoted Freeland football coach, a faithful member of Trinity Lutheran Church (Monitor), and above all else, an awesome and loving husband and father who will be deeply missed, but lovingly remembered for years to come. Brian leaves to cherish his memory, his best friend and loving wife, Jill Davis and their boys: Jordan, Joshua, and Mason. He will remain forever alive in the hearts of his mother, Cindy Atwood and father, Larry (Ann) Davis; his sister, Stephanie (Charles) Rozewski; father and mother-in-law, Pamela (Alfred) Banaszak; brother-in-law, Jeff (Lori) Banaszak and Jodi Banaszak (Randy Faulkner). Brian will also be deeply missed by his nieces and nephews, Hayden, Lucy, Carli, Logan and his aunts and uncles, Lugene (Virgil) McGuire and Raymond “Skip” (Kay) Warmbier. Brian was welcomed home to heaven by his grandparents, Raymond and Gertrude Warmbier. Brian’s family will be present to receive visitors on Thursday, July 20, 2017 from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM at Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 955 N. Pine Rd., Hampton Twp.
