Vernon Ray Davis, 64, passed away December 4, 2005, at his home after a battle with cancer. He was born in Rush Springs on October 1, 1941. He was raised in Hobbs, New Mexico, but loved Albuquerque.

Vernon loved the road as he was an over-the-road truck driver for the last 40 years. In his spare time he loved fishing, hunting, golf, and the mountains and ocean. He will be truly missed.

He was preceded in death by his mother; brother, Alin Davis, and sister, Mary Lou Montgomery.

Survivors include his loving wife, Lori Davis; daughter, Vanessa and husband Martin; son, Damon Davis; four grandchildren, Daniel, Felicia, Matthew, and Isacc, all of Albuquerque; brothers, Tom Davis and wife Carol of Rattan and Billy Davis and wife Frances of Albuquerque; sisters, Beverly White and husband Bob, Linda White of Virginia Beach, Virginia, and Carla Sue Cofer of Oklahoma City; sisters-in-law, Betty Westcott, Angie Pachta, Mable Taylor, and Thelma Sanchez, all of Albuquerque, and Rose Amador and husband Nick of Dublin, California; brother-in-law, George Gargoura of Albuquerque, and loving pet chow, Duke. Vernon also had many loving nieces and nephews and wonderful friends in the trucking industry.

We would like to thank Vista Care Hospice, Chaplain Larry Wills, Colin Frost, and especially wonderful and caring nurse, Raynell Garcia.
