We Remember

DAVIS, Eric Herbert Gordon

Eric Herbert Gordon Davis was born in Port Blandford, Newfoundland to loving parents, Hubert and Amy. Though he lived many years working as a millwright in Fort McMurray, Alberta, and finally retired in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Eric always called Newfoundland “Home”.

Eric loved his family and was passionate about life. From the ocean to the woods, he enjoyed the outdoors; songs and stories flowed through his veins. Eric’s faith sustained him, and he would often be found serving in the Church, singing in the choir or helping a family member.

Eric Davis walked into the waiting arms of his Saviour on June 13, 2022, at the age of 73.  He is survived by his wife, Dulcie Davis, their children: Geoffrey Davis, Jason Davis, and Amy Davis, and their families including 9 grandchildren, as well as other close family members.  We know he is right now having a Heavenly kitchen party with Nan, Pop, Laban, Gerald, and so many friends too!

We will miss your vibrance and your laughter,
Husband, Dad, Grandpa, Papa, Brother, Uncle, Friend
And you remain in our hearts always!

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation.

    My sincere condolences to Eric’s family. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. I remember Eric as always being a very happy, kind, caring man. I especially appreciate the kindness he shared with my grandmother (his aunt, his mother’s sister-in-law). Even though they lived on opposite coasts in this vast country, he kept in touch with her and visited her when he was in Newfoundland. She cherished their relationship.
    Sincerely,
    Alison & Dwayne

    So sorry to hear if Eric’s passing. I got to know him through his involvement with the Loon Bay Men’s Fellowship Camp a few years ago where I, along with many others, enjoyed his musical talent & singing. I last spoke with him a year or so ago when he was diagnosed requested prayer from our Twillingate Men’s Group. That request was also passed on to our church congregation. I have fond memories of my somewhat brief friendship with Eric. My condolences go out to all the family. I pray God’s peace and comfort on you all at this sad time. God bless!
