Obituary For Phillip Davis

Phillip Davis was born on September 30, 1943, in Harnett County, North Carolina, to parents, the late Ernest and Olena Davis. His life was marked by an unwavering devotion to his family, friends, and church. He passed on September 1, 2023, at his residence in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.

He joins in eternal rest his elder siblings, Robert Davis and Ernest Davis Jr. Phillip is survived by his lifelong partner, Ms. Jean Jones of Holly Springs, two sisters, Ms. Kathleen Campbell and Ms. Brenda Cameron, a brother, Mr. Anthony Davis, and a multitude of nieces, and nephews, as well as a diverse group of friends.

Phillip graduated from Shawtown High School in Harnett County in 1961. He continued his academic journey by attaining a degree in Automotive Technology from Fayetteville State University. Upon the completion of his formal education, Phillip assumed the role of a skilled mechanic within the City of Raleigh Bus System, where his technical expertise was highly regarded.

Later, Phillip chose to redirect his considerable talents towards serving the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) as the Head Custodian at both Apex Elementary and Fuquay-Varina Elementary schools. His dedication to his work was unrivaled, and he became an indispensable asset. Post-retirement from the WCPSS, Phillip continued to contribute his exceptional work ethic and dedication as a full-time custodian at Fidelity Bank in Downtown Fuquay-Varina until his well-earned retirement in 2020.

Phillip's spiritual life was equally rich, as he was a lifelong member of Bethlehem AME Zion Church. Here, he selflessly served as a trustee, steadfastly laboring to ensure the preservation of the church's legacy. His punctuality and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty were evident in every task he undertook on behalf of the church.

Phillip will forever be remembered as a symbol of unwavering commitment to doing things the right way, a gifted problem solver with the ability to tackle any repair project, a man who could convey wisdom with brevity, and a source of infectious laughter that could leave anyone in stitches.

His unique combination of qualities made him an exceptional individual, and his absence leaves an irreplaceable void in our lives. Phillip Davis was truly one of a kind, and his presence will be deeply missed.

Visitation: Friday, September 8, 2023, 1:00 - 6:00 p.m. at Trice Funeral Home Chapel in Fuquay-Varina, NC 27526.

Funeral will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 9, 2023, at Bethlehem AME Zion Church, 461 Olive Branch Road in Fuquay-Varina, NC 27526.
