In Memoriam: Marion Gibson Davis

Published: August 9, 2019


Our beloved husband, father, and grandfather passed away at St. Vincent Providence Hospital in Portland, Oregon on July 18, 2019.  Marion was born on Sept. 18, 1948, in Greenville, Mississippi to Emett George Davis and Royce Christine Davis, the youngest of four siblings. His father was a carpenter, and Marion often followed him around as a young boy, watching and learning.  He was able to do almost anything with his hands, and he did beautiful tile work and carpentry, as well as fixing plumbing and electrical issues.  Marion's father died when he was young, and it was then that he began making trips to Anchorage to stay with his sister Christine Moesh during the summers.
