Joseph S. Davis: Feb. 12, 1955 – March 20, 2021



Joseph S. Davis Jr was born Feb. 12, 1955 in Billings, Mont. He passed away peacefully at his home on March 20, 2021.

Joe grew up in Billings, Mont., Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, and Boulder City, Nev. He graduated from Southern Nevada Vocational and Technical School in 1973 and later worked for the City of Las Vegas Public Works, Timberline Roofing in Pocatello, Id., and then settled on south Whidbey Island, Wash., in 1981.

On Whidbey, Joe worked as a welder at Nichols Brothers Boatbuilders, as a mechanic at Whidbey Tire and Auto and for Whidbey Parks and Recreation before retiring in about 2015-16 to spend his remaining years at home with “the love of my life.”

Joe and Ginny were married in 1997 and enjoyed their years with family and friends, camping, playing cards, socializing and lovingly spending time with their grandchildren as they grew up.

Joe is survived by his wife Virginia Davis; sisters Kathleen Brakebush, Theresa Villella and Jamie Glein; brothers Scott Penny and Glenn Penny; and his grandchildren, Angelica Janda, Samantha Huben and Tyler Heggenes.

No funeral service will be held. Joe’s wish is that you instead spend that time with those you love.
