Darnell Davis, 54, of Huntington, died July 8, 2005, at his home.

His memorial service will be scheduled later at Vancouver, Wash.

Darnell Davis was born on April 10, 1951, at Fort Towson, Okla. He was raised and educated in Oklahoma. He started working outside of the home at the age of 13 to help support his family. Darnell was awarded a football scholarship and attended college in Oklahoma. Earning his degree, he joined the U.S. Navy, completing his tour of duty in 1974.

After serving in the Navy, Darnell began driving truck in Oklahoma. He continued driving when he moved to Vancouver, Wash. He met his future wife, Katherine, in 1990; they were married at Vancouver in 1994.

They bought their home at Huntington just this last year. Darnell loved to go fishing for any type of fish. He enjoyed collecting tools, even though he didn’t know how to use them. Darnell welcomed the opportunity to bring his nephews into his home and enjoyed being a part of their raising.

He enjoyed teasing. Whether you knew it or not, you might be the brunt of the tease and he enjoyed every minute of it. Darnell had a heart of gold; he’d help anyone and give the shirt off of his back if it was needed.

Survivors include his wife, Katherine; nephews, Robert and Ridge Jackson; his mother, Annie Jewel Weekly; half-sisters and brothers, Earl Jackson, Martha Jackson, Marilyn Jackson, Chris Weekly, Carolyn Jackson and Skip Jackson; many nieces, nephews and cousins; mother-in-law who adored him, Betty, and father-in-law, Brian Hart; sisters-in-law and their husbands, Connie and Jack Brown and Julia and Dave Kelly; brothers-in-law, Robert Brodahl and Chuck Brodahl and his wife, Barbara.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Leon Davis; and a half-brother, Ray Jackson.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Huntington Fire Department through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543, Halfway, OR 97834.
