Minister Dennis Davis Sr. departed to his heavenly home to be with his Lord on September 2, 2019 surrounded by his loving wife Evangeline and faithful brother Matthew. He was born in Portsmouth, VA to the late Vernon and Geraldine Davis. He attended I.C. Norcom High School and later enlisted in the U.S. Army where he received numerous commendation medals for his dedicated and honorable service. He retired from the Naval Aviation Depot and Chesapeake the Public-school system. Minister Davis also worked several years for the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) as a Christian counselor. Dennis Davis loved the Lord and had a passion for the Word of God. He enjoyed witnessing andsharing the love of Christ with others. He described himself as the chief of sinner that learned of the love, grace, mercy, and power of God. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Dennis taught and preached the Word of God with power and authority. One of his favorite scriptures is Matthew 3:2, “Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”. For many years Dennis Davis volunteered at a local convalescent home preaching the Word of God. He enjoyed different genres of music, talking about Jesus, fixing things around the house, cooking, and spending time with his family. Dennis loved people and strived to take care of the needs of his community. Heoften said, “I will give the clothes off my back to meet the needs of someone else.” Dennis lived a life of integrity, honor, un-waving conviction and dedication to receive the ultimate reward. He sought to hear the voice of God declare “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou intothe joy of thy lord” (Matthew 25:21).Dennis is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Minister Evangeline Davis; three daughters Cynthia Davis, Jessica Hooker (John), and Cassaundria Johnson, two sons: Dennis Davis Jr. and Immanuel Davis; four grandchildren; three sisters: Eldeana Jones (William), Luella Harrell (William), and Laverne Kenon (Isiah); brother: Matthew Davis and deceased brother Melvin Hathaway, four sisters in law, two brothers in law; special aunt Marie B. Todd and two special cousins Michael Davis and Renee Davis-Sharpe and many loving nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends. Minister Dennis Lee Davis Sr. will be missed, and his legacy will live on through his family, friends, and the lives he touched. Therefore, rest our beloved husband, father, brother, and friend, because you have “fought a good fight, have finished thy course, kept the faith:Henceforth there is laid up for you a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give you at that day: and not to you only, but unto all them also that love his appearing” (Timothy 4:7-8).
