Rev. George Miller Davis

Jan. 14, 1925 - Dec. 13, 2012

The Rev. George Miller Davis, 87 years young, of Lee’s Summit, Mo., died and received his heavenly birthday on Dec. 13, 2012, at the Hospice House in the John Knox Village Care Center, Lee’s Summit, Mo.  

A requiem memorial Mass will be offered for Fr. Davis at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Lee’s Summit (416 S.E. Grand Ave.), Mo., at 2 p.m. Jan. 9, with a reception to follow, with Fr.

Fr. Davis was born Jan. 14, 1925, to Miller Abbot Davis and Johnnie Bird (Hines) Davis in Broken Bow, Okla.  He received a B.S. (1949) and a M.Ed. (1955) both from the University of North Texas. Following a brief teaching career, he studied at General Theological Seminary in New York City and was ordained a deacon in the Episcopal Church in 1959 and a priest in 1960. He served as the vicar of St. Mark’s Church in Arlington, Texas (1959-1960), vicar of St. Laurence Church in Grapevine, Texas (1959-1960), vicar of Good Shepherd Church and college chaplain in Wichita Falls, Texas (1961-1967), assistant rector of Trinity Church in Fort Wayne (1967-1973), and as rector of St. Andrew’s Church in Kokomo (1973-1991).

He was a veteran of World War II, having served in the medical corps and saw action particularly at the Battle of the Bulge. He was also a chaplain for much of his ministerial life with the Fraternal Order of Elks.

He is survived by his wife, Mary Louise Davis, of the home; four children, Frank Davis, Houston, Texas, Bill Davis, Houston, Texas, Marynell Townsend and husband Terry, Cambridge, Ohio, and Adam Davis and wife Jenn, Las Vegas, Nev.; four stepchildren, David Johnson and wife Janie, Jefferson City, Mo., Bruce Johnson and wife Bobbie, Ashburn, Va., Douglas Johnson and wife Sue, Independence, Mo., and Anne O’Leary and husband Mark, Zionsville. He is also survived by 20 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his first two wives, Betty and Carol, and also by his stepson Brian and wife Cecile.

The family has asked that memorial contributions be directed to either St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 416 S.E. Grand Ave., Lee’s Summit, MO 64063 or St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 602 W. Superior St., Kokomo, IN 46901.
