Samuel Guy Davis

November 9, 1959 — February 16, 2024




Samuel Guy Davis was born November 9, 1959 in Sydney, Australia. His father was American and his mother was of the Māori tribe in New Zealand. He was 1 of 6 children and grew up in Melbourne, Australia.

Since his father was a Marine, he also decided to join The United States Marine Corps at the age of 18. He was deployed in Panama, Cuba, and Zimbabwe. He was honorably discharged as an E-Master Sergeant. He also received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Georgia.

Samuel met his wife, Regina Davis at the Blood Bank. She was so infatuated with accent and initially thought it was fake. They got married May 8, 1997 and their union lasted a little over 26 years. She was waiting for the day his accent dropped (it never did). Sammy was very protective over his wife and often times you would find him standing right beside her or right behind her. Regina referred to her husband as her ‘Protector’ and ‘Bull Dog’. Although he was always prone to being in the background or behind the scenes, you always felt his presence.

In his free time, he enjoyed reading books (sometimes even more than once), watching the history channel, and spending time with his family. He and his wife enjoyed going to the movies, going out to eat, and ultimately being in the comfort of their own home. He worked as a Security guard much of his life and upon his untimely death he was a Site Supervisor at The Medical Center of Aurora.

Samuel was a man of very few words, but those that got to know him knew he had a dark sense of humor and he enjoyed venting about work. He loved working and wearing his uniform – ironing his clothes *with starch* every day. He liked to smell good and his lingering scent let you know that he used most of the bottle. He had an infectious laugh and was very keen on nicknames. He called his wife ‘Pooh’, his son Karl, ‘Sport’, his daughter Razelle, ‘Wombat’, his daughter AnQuanette, ‘Annie Anns/Monkey’, his grandson ‘His best mate’, and his daughter-in-law ‘Sailor’. He was loved by kids because he would sneak them candy and sweets and play with them (his daughter Razelle and grandson Alaric can attest to this).

He had many challenges in his life, but always persevered and kept trying to be a better man no matter what. His gifts were not of monetary value, but he made it a point to think of his wife and children bearing gifts in other ways. Whenever he had extra of anything he would always offer that to his wife and kids and get so excited to give it to them; he was a caretaker in the best way he knew how. You need medication, “Here you go”, cookies and pastries he got from the VA lounge, “Here’s a bag full” lotion for your dry skin “Here’s a few tubs”. He was notorious for hyping his wife and kids up making them feel like the most important people in the world. If there was one thing he was going to do, it was to show up and show out for his family. He loved his wife and children’s cooking, often times asking for seconds and thirds. His favorite meal was chicken and shrimp alfredo and he LOVED to snack. If you needed to know where Sammy was, follow the trail of crumbs to his room.

Samuel left this world unexpectedly and gained his wings February 16, 2024 at home. Those left to cherish his memory include his wife, Regina Davis, his children Razelle Davis, AnQuanette Murray-Cawthorn, Karl Miller (Rashelle), Monica Davis, and Samantha. His grandchildren Alaric Miller and Rayelle Razeeq. His brothers-in-law Elic Cawthorn and Rozelle Cawthorn, sister-in-law Wesli Vervonae Allen, mother-in-law Beverly Allen, and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
