Michael J. Davis
1961 – 2009
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Michael J. Davis, 48, of Crowley Road, Sabattus, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 11, in Philadelphia, Pa., from complications of cancer. Though a tough road he never gave up. He fought so hard, his doctors gave him a very fitting nick name: “The Tank.”
He was born March 27, 1961, the son of Jerome and Pat Davis of Sabattus. He graduated from Oak Hill High School in Wales in 1979.
On June 26, 1987, he married Joan Montminy, the love of his life and they made their home together on the Davis Farm.
He worked 28 years for Dragon Products in Lewiston. Mike was a hard worker who never missed a day of work even when he was battling cancer. He enjoyed hunting at the farm with his son and his dad, snowmobiling at his camp with his friends, and especially family gatherings at the camp in Rangeley.
He was also a huge Patriot’s fan. You know where you could find him on Sunday’s during football season!! He was the type of guy that hated every minute of shopping, but would still go to just be with his wife – he and Jo were inseparable. The love they shared can never be measured. Thou the time they shared was not long enough, their love will last for eternity. I Love you Mikey!
Survivors include his devoted wife, Joan (Jo Jo); son, Matthew, daughter, Erica, and parents Jerome and Pat of Sabattus; three brothers, Jerry Davis and wife, Norma, of Sabattus, Glenn Davis and companion, Jackie Stowe, of Lisbon and Scott Davis of Sabattus; in-laws, Rene and Rachel Montminy of Lewiston; two sisters-in-law, Brenda Oakes and companion, Doug Eiring, of Auburn and Doris and Shane Thompson of Leeds; brother-in-law, Scott and wife, Debra Montminy, of Lewiston; five nephews; five nieces; and one great-nephew.
He had a special love for his dog, Chloe. “Mike would say: “Chloe you smell like a dog, but you are a human being.” His life was blessed with an abundance of friends. He loved you all. He left an impression with all his friends, he was a kind, gentle soul that would give the shirt off his back. He was also a dad to his son’s buddy’s. HE WAS LOVED…. AND WILL BE MISSED BY ALL WHO KNEW HIM.
