Henry was born January 8, 1942, in Tchula, Mississippi, the son of Henry Sr. and Alice (Golden) Davis. He had a wide range of jobs and interests from working at John Deere to working as a cook, being MVP on the softball diamond, to holding and loving on his grandchildren.

He enjoyed playing softball in his younger years, took pride in keeping his car clean, and had a great sense of humor. Above all else, family was the most important thing to Henry.

Henry is survived by his children, Keesa (Kevin) Tippett, Keisha Tippett, Elisha (Jermaine) Carpenter, Karin (Adrian) Plato, Henry (Cassandra) Davis III, Chris Davis, and Jennifer (Zachary) Smith; his grandchildren, Isaiah Carpenter, Aaliyah Carpenter, Nyla Carpenter, Londyn Hamilton, Talissa Vegas, Kyla Plato, Audriana Plato, Dewaun Hampton, Latron Hampton, Naveyah Davis, Stellah Davis, Henry Davis IV, Juell Brown, Kiyan Smith, and Hendrix Smith; a great-grandson, Semaj Parker; siblings, Alfred Davis, Miriam Davis, Barbara Johnson, Larry Davis, Gwendolyn Davis, Janice Smith, Jerome Davis, and Benjamin Davis; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, his daughter, Cynthia Davis, and siblings, Kathryn Hoane, Donald Davis, Cleo Davis, Bill Davis, Lillian Davis, and Henry “Hank” Davis.

He is loved by so many and will truly be missed in many ways. Henry has many brothers and sisters, children, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who will always remember his style, charisma, no nonsense demeanor, and most important, love that he gave to each of us. 

Henry has touched many hearts, in many ways. To know him is to love him!
