Rodney Davis Obituary

For unto us a Child is born, a Son is given....

The author of his own story began page 1 of 58 Chapters July 9th, 1965, Rodney B. Davis was Born the 5th Child of Donald E. Davis,Sr. And the late Lucille Isley-Davis, the love of his life. He was the second to last of six children Made from this clay of life. Rodney received his formal education in the Philadelphia public school system. 

Rodney Grew up in the North Philadelphia section of Philadelphia, 21st & Norris street to be exact was his hangout, he loved his family first and foremost but the family in his community also where he was born and raised, up until his untimely death he’d still hangout “down the way” as he referred to it when time permitted. Rodney Affectionately known as “Cheeze” would get fresh in a polo shirt, jeans, hat, and, fresh kicks to complete and make his way to have a good time. Rodney was at times an off-stage comedian and at other times a fearless warrior, if you know Rodney you know he was just about scared of nothing! Rodney also enjoyed spending time with his Isley and Davis families and bike rides. 

“You become a man when you give your family the best of who you are.” Rodney became a father to three children Taray, Shaquill, and, Shantae, and also a grandfather. Rodney was not only a father and a son, but an uncle and great-uncle bonding with his Nieces and nephews and their children, they all loved uncle Rodney’s sense of humor. “Family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.”

Rodney was preceded in death by His Mother Lucille, Sister, Donna, and, Nephew, Khalid. Too numerous to mention but many have gone on before him and he’ll now join them at the meeting in Paradise. 

A time to Mourn … Psalm 23. “The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.”

Rodney leaves to live on in his zest for life three children, Taray, Shaquill, and Shantae, and their Children his Grandchildren, A loving and devoted father, Donald E. Davis, Sr., Brothers Donald, Jr., and, Natu, Sisters, Beverly, and, Annette, and a Host of Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, from both the Davis, and, Isley families, and friends. 

John 14:6 Jesus said, “let not your hearts be troubled, I am the way, the truth and the life.” Everything that you are looking for can be found in him. All of your questions can be answered by him. Don't look to the world for the answers you seek. Turn to him while he may be found, turn to God.
