Thomas "Tom" A Davis

Thomas "Tom" A. Davis, age 64, of Jefferson City, passed away on Saturday, June 18, 2016, at University Hospital and Clinics in Columbia.

Tom was born on May 18, 1952, in Jefferson City, a son to the late Richard J. and Phyllis J. (Loethen) Davis.

Tom was a 1970 graduate of Jefferson City High School.

Tom was a previous business partner of Cook and Davis Construction Company in Jefferson City and an over the road truck driver for Mebruer Trucking in Rich Fountain. He attended Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Jefferson City.

Tom enjoyed fishing and hunting, dirt track racing, sports especially football and baseball, and he was an avid runner. Tom loved music, telling stories, and always had to try everything at least once. He always had to be busy and was a tender hearted person who never said no to anyone in need. Tom always took the time to really appreciate God's creation and the beauty of everything around him which attributed to his deep strong faith. His greatest love was spending time with his family and grandchildren. Tom, being a very giving person throughout his life, continued his giving even after his death by being a bone and organ donor.

Upon reflection of my brothers life, I realize what an exceptional life this man led. From my earliest memories he always set an example of how to act and live. I believe a mans measure in life is how much of a servant to his fellow man he has been. I assure you Tom always answered the call. When anyone needed help he was the first to volunteer. He always led the way with enthusiasm and good cheer. He will truly be missed. Dan
