Dee was born March 27, 1931, at Waldron, Ark., the third child of Reacel and Monta May Starr Davis.
He was raised in Booneville, Ark., then moved to Oregon in 1948. There he married Norma Jean Wood on Aug. 9, 1949, in John Day. They had four children, Linda Davis Pifher, Della Davis Edison, Rick Davis, and Roger Davis.

He worked as a cat skinner, mechanic, heavy equipment operator and road builder.

Dee loved to hunt, fish and be with his family, and always had a story or joke to share. He was always ready to go fishing rain or shine, he hunted up until last year when his health declined.

He will be greatly missed by those who dearly loved him.
