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.

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.
