Norman Joseph Davis, Jr.
December 20, 1952 - March 20, 2023
We are sad to announce the passing of Norman Joseph Davis, Jr., age 70, of Newark, DE. Norman passed away on March 20, 2023 surrounded by his family after a brief, but courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Wilmington, DE on December 20, 1952, he was a son of the late Norman Joseph and Veronica Regina (Gebhart) Davis, Sr. Norman grew up in New Castle and attended St. Peters Catholic School. He graduated from Delcastle Technical High School in 1971 as a machinist apprentice. He proudly served his country from 1971-1975 as a sailor in the U.S. Navy and was a proud member of the U.S. Navy Beach Jumpers Association. Norman worked as a chemical lab assistant for ICI, Unichema and Croda and retired after 36 years.
Norman was an avid sports fan and loved to collect sports memorabilia. His favorite sport was baseball, and he loved watching the Phillies and attending Phillies games as often as possible. Norman also loved to travel and especially enjoyed visiting the Caribbean Islands. In his later years, Norman loved spending time with his two dogs, whom he loved and adored more than anything.
In addition to his parents, Norman was preceded in death by his daughter, Lisa Davis in September 2020. He is survived by his children, Sherri Brooks (Russell), Kim Zoladkiewicz, Gina Davis, and Nicholas Davis; faithful four-legged companions ~ Whiskey and Ava; grandchildren, Bryce, Brandon, Emilee, Tripp, Kenzie, Brayden, Elijah, and his soon-to-be grandson due in May; and brothers, Mike Davis (Shelia) and Bucky Davis (Frannie).
A visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 12 pm on Saturday, March 25, 2023, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 North DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE. The funeral service and interment will be held privately at later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Norman’s name to the Faithful Friends Animal Society, 12 Germay Drive, Wilmington, DE 19804 or by clicking here.
