Brian Davis was born on September 19, 1969 and went home to be with the Lord Tuesday, November 30, 2021. He was the son of Caroleen and John Davis of Warren, Ohio. He was preceded in death by his loving mother Caroleen Dawson Davis and nephew Jonathan D. Davis. He leaves to cherish his memory two sons, Mackenzie Davidson and

and friends.

He graduated from LaBrae High School in 1987. He was self-employed as a general contractor. He had so many talents that most people can only dream about. He loved to draw and build things with his hands. Brian was a great comedian, and he could mimic any voice he wanted to. If you wanted to get a good laugh spend some time with him. He loved to eat and ride his bike or motorcycle. He was a hardcore Cleveland Browns fan win or lose.

Brian was a member of Meredith Temple Church of God in Christ for many years and was a chartered member of Agape Christian Ministries for the past three years. He was known as Brian, Beev, Dark and more recently Papa Smurf and Santa Clause. He was kind and gentle and he will be truly missed!

    This hits so different, Dark, Brian was my dude!! When I would be going thru some tough times, he wod show up out if no where just to put a smile on my face. Brian encouraged me to follow my dreams, when I thought I couldn’t. He was one of my closest friends and It’s heavy to know he’s gone, yet I hear his laugh and it gets me smiling still. My Condolences to the family, and to his boys I know for certain that your father loves you dearly and I know he is going to continue to watch over you two!!
