Jackie "Jack" Edwards Davis

October 2, 1946 — February 15, 2024

Jackie “Jack” Edwards Davis, 77, of Valdosta, GA, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on February 15, 2024, after a battle with esophageal cancer.

He was born on October 2, 1946, in Lansing, Michigan to Gayle and Virginia (nee Perdue) Davis. Jackie attended Charlotte High School and was an over-the-road truck driver for most of his career. Jackie was a relentless tinkerer, always working on something, always having multiple projects in the works. Easy to recognize by his trucker hats and button-down shirts, he was up early every day. He was a skilled wheeler and dealer, never missed an opportunity to find a great deal at an auction or yard sale.

Jackie is survived by his wife of almost 40 years Joan (nee McHugh), children Shelby Davis, Joanie (Jason) Myers, James (Jill) Davis, Joshua (Cynthia Basta) Davis, Jackee (Russell Smith) Davis, Jonnee (Cody Gilbert) Davis, 16 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, countless nieces, nephews, cousins, and his two beloved dogs, Roxie and Samme. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brother John, who died during the Vietnam War, and sisters Tyrrie Metters and Foy Jean Hackler.

There will be no public funeral services, the family will celebrate his life with a private memorial at a future date. Condolences to the family may be conveyed online at
