George "Grady" Davis

January 27, 1931 — April 12, 2021

George "Grady" Davis, 90, Hide-A-Way, TX, went to be with the Lord on April 12th 2021. Grady was born on January 27th 1931 in Moultrie, Ga. He graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in engineering. After his service in the military he married Ann Bryant and resided in Thomasville, Ga. until her death at the age of 44. Graveside rites will be at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Thomasville, GA. on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at 10:30AM. The love of his life was when he met JoAnn Peck. They spent 43 years together enjoying their homes in Thomasville, Ga, El Paso, Tx, Moultrie, Ga, and Hide-A-Way, Tx. After Grady retired they enjoyed travel in their motorhome, and visiting with family until JoAnn's death on August 26, 2018 at age 77. Grady was very creative and owned several successful businesses. He owned Southern Manor Furniture and Autrey Furniture Manufacturing designing, making, and selling his furniture wholesale to large furniture chains and hotels. He loved people, always had a good joke, and was a friend to so many people that loved him. Grady was a happy go lucky fellow and loved to play golf. He especially loved to play the piano. When he was younger he won several competition awards but the real fun was when his brother "the choir director" Bill Davis and his sister Claire Smith, a graduate from the school of Juilliard for Music, would get the whole family to gather around the piano and sing our hearts out. He loved his family and would record his music for for all our special occasions. He was still able to play piano and sing with the Hide-A-Way Community Church Choir until he died. Grady is preceded in his death by his parents Usher T. Davis and Ada Fay Spires Davis, Moultrie, Ga., his son John "Jack" Grady Davis, Sister Claire Smith, Atlanta, Ga. brother Usher T "Bill" Davis, Pensacola, Fl. Survivors are daughter, Ellen Jean Pate of Washington State , nieces Brenda Davis (Ellen) Pensacola, Fl , Kathryn Johnson (Steve) Pensacola, Fl. nephew Daniel Davis Smith (Barbara) Roswell, Ga., many great nieces and nephews, and many dear friends and golfing buddies. He will be missed.
