Gene Harold Davis, 84, of Normangee, Texas passed away on August 24, 2023 in Normangee, Texas. He was born on December 24, 1938 to Malcom Eli and Bertha Lee (Blackwell) Davis in Newhope, Arkansas.

Gene was preceded in death by both of his parents and all of his siblings, Cois Davis, Polly Yarbrough, Carl Davis, Louise Graham and Charles Davis. He is survived by his wife, Carol Davis; children, Timothy Davis (Carla), Gregory Davis (Karen), Judy Davis-Escobar (Alex), Kenneth Davis (Bridgette), Randy Davis, and Kristal Byrd (Paul); step-children, Allen Byrd (Stephanie), Denise Smelser (Brett), and Troy Byrd (Tasha); twenty-four grandchildren and forty-six great-grandchildren.

Gene was a passionate man. He loved his family and had faith in the Lord. Gene enjoyed hunting and fishing. He would take you to a "honey hole" and would always end up catching more fish than you, somehow. He fried the best tasting crappie you have ever tasted. Gene enjoyed chasing that big buck up a mountain with family and friends. He was a jack of all trades working jobs from logging, game warden, construction and heavy machinery. He was dependable and would lend his hand in time of need with many words of advice. Gene knew everything and would tell you about it for hours. There was never a dull moment of lack of an entertaining story. We will all miss listening to him tell his stories for hours.

Arrangements are under the direction of Walters Funeral Home, Centerville, Texas.
