Robert E. “Davis” Davis
July 8, 1948 - September 1, 2022
Robert E. “Davis” Davis, age 74, of Newark, DE, passed away on Thursday, September 1, 2022.
Born in Los Angeles, CA, on July 8, 1948, Davis was the son of the late James and Dolores (Faria) Davis. He made his career as an IT technician for the Unemployment Tax Advisory.
Davis enjoyed playing handball, riding motorcycles, sailing, yoga, and refereeing football, among many other hobbies and interests. He was an avid cigar roller, and he shared his rolling tutorials on social media, where his videos received millions of views from people all around the world. He made countless trips, both by land and by sea, across North America accompanied only by his motorcycle or his self-built sailboat. To his family, he will always be a true “renaissance man”; someone who possesses a plethora of indispensable knowledge and talent in many different areas. Furthermore, he never missed an opportunity to share his knowledge with others, friends and strangers alike. He was always eager to help anyone who needed help and he always did so with humility and a quick and witty sense of humor. Anyone who knew Davis, knew he lived his life to the absolute fullest.
Davis was preceded in death by his step-son, Christopher Greenleaf. He is survived by his beloved wife of 38 years, Cynthia (Coates) Greenleaf-Davis; step-children, Michelle Cotton, and Heather Bunner; siblings, Collette Howell, Helen Davis, Patricia White, Andrea Yaeger, and Edith Hall; nieces, Nichole Sedlinieck, Jacqueline Yaeger, and Elizabeth Yaeger; 9 step-grandchildren; and 8 step-great-grandchildren.
All services will be held privately.
