Buck Davis

It is seldom that you meet a Texan as true as Buck Davis. From the fullness of his laughter to the loudness of his holler, he could make you feel the grandeur and greatness of our great state. The saying, "A heart as big as Texas", has never fit a man so well. Just as Texas has influenced and strengthened many people's lives, so did Buck. His open, generous and fun-loving personality rubbed off on everyone he met. Buck never met a stranger and he was known to affectionately give indiscriminate nicknames. A few we can recall are Baby Brother, Farmer Jones, Baby Boo Boo, Cisco and Benny. Whatever he named you, he would not hesitate to share with you his love for Jesus Christ.

Buck was born in El Paso, Texas on January 28, 1922 to Ralph Vernon Davis and Virginia Mae Ryan. In 1941, he purchased his first farm in El Paso County. Later he married Virginia Wrinkle, who preceded him in death in 1964. In 1965 Buck married Corene Sutton. They raised three children while ranching in Texas and serving with the Rio Grande River Ministry. Corene passed away in 1997. Buck never attempted retiring, for his love of the land kept him ranching until 2002, when he fell in love with and married Margaret Stanfield, of San Angelo. They were active members of Quail Valley Baptist Church.

Buck is survived by his wife; 2 sons and daughters-in-law, and their children; daughter and son-in-law and their children; as well as great-grandchildren and an extended family spreading far and wide, as a result of his Texas-size heart.

A memorial service will be held at the Baptist Retirement Center Chapel at 2:30 PM on Saturday, July 12, 2008. A visitation for family and friends at the Center's clubhouse will follow.

A graveside service will be held at Balmorhea Cemetery, in Balmorhea, Texas on Monday, July 14, 2008 at 1:30 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Baptist Memorial Hospice at 438 E Houston Harte Expy ,San Angelo, TX 76903, or Cal Farley's Boy Ranch at PO Box 1890, Amarillo, TX 79174.
