From his birth in Tulsa, Oklahoma on March 9, 1933 to Zelma Thomas and Joseph Nolen Moore to his death on Wednesday, he created laughter and goodwill with everyone he met. He grew up in Oklahoma and earned a Political Science degree from the University of Oklahoma in 1956. He was always involved and interested in politics. Davis ran for State Senate and U.S Congress in Oklahoma. Davis had a great business and financial mind as well, building his own companies in insurance and later investments. Davis married Nana Lee Pitts from Okmulgee, Oklahoma in 1957. Together they had one daughter, Cathy. Davis and Nana stayed in Houston, Texas after Nana was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and received treatment at M D Anderson Cancer Center which subsequently claimed her life in 1981.

Davis will be fondly remembered by many because of his genuine love for humanity, conversation, debate, laughter and fun.
