Kenneth Roy Davis, Jr

Feb 21, 1958 - Nov 5, 2022

Obituary

On Saturday, November 5, 2022, Kenneth Roy Davis, Jr, a beloved husband, son, brother, father of three and grandfather of four, passed away quickly after learning he had brain cancer, at the age of 64.

Ken was born February 21, 1958 in Red Bluff, CA to Eleanor and Ken Davis, Sr. then moved to San Francisco for his early upbringing. The family later relocated to South San Francisco, where he graduated from South San Francisco High School in 1976.

Ken obtained a computer programming certificate from Bryman School of Data Processing, and worked for UPS, Sega, Sony, PlayStation, DHL, and Choice Logistics, as a Supply Chain Professional. He had an affinity for spreadsheets and inventory management.

Ken had a zest for life and everyone loved him. His gruff baritone voice was such a distinguishing trait, along with his captivating blue eyes. He was humble and fun-loving, and beloved by all. He loved watching and playing sports, particularly hockey, bowling, baseball, and football. Golf was his passion and he was looking forward to retiring in 3 months so he could hit the green more often at his beloved Sequoia Woods Country Club and with the Putters golf group to which he belonged for decades.

Ken is survived by his mother, Eleanor Canova-Davis, brother Jeff Davis, daughters Samantha (Norberto) Nunes and Grace Prentice, son Scott Davis, and four grandchildren Leon Prentice, Jack Prentice, Brenton Nunes and Brixton Nunes, and wife of 7 years, Diana Davis.

Memorial services are being planned for February 2023 in Daly City, CA and Arnold, CA.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in his name to the Glioblastoma Foundation at glioblastomafoundation.org.

    Ken was definitely the nicest and kindest person I have ever met. He was always so happy and I never heard him speak badly of anyone. Besides being a friend I did represent him in a purchase of a home in Arnold most recently and he was a complete joy to work with from beginning to end.

    Dearest Diana, I feel fortunate to be the one, to witness first time Ken came to your house, he was kind, bashful, plus took us two silly girls in a stride. You had prayed for a good man to come into your life, you didn’t just find good… you found a sterling man, with love, intelligence, and compassion to share. It is with a heavy heart my dear, that I now witness your amazing journey comming to an end, 7 years that should have had a chance to continue on, with joy, love and laughter. Blessings to both of you 💞

    Ken will always be one of my most favorite faces to see around Sequoia Woods. He always had a smile or laugh to share and a positive attitude. I am so happy he found such a wonderful woman in you, Diana, and shared you with the rest of his Arnold family. My heart hurts for you and this loss, he will always be missed and never forgotten. I hope that I can make it to the Arnold service in February. Much love and prayers to the family.

    Diana and family, Vic and I want you all to know that we think Ken was a gem of a person, and we are heartbroken for you. More than anything, I loved the way he loved you and took care of you. I loved his gentle nature. One of my favorite memories of him will always be the dancing in the living room with my family. That was the day we celebrated your engagement! There is peace knowing that we will see Ken in heaven. God hears us and helps us in the time of his favor and in the day of salvation. His promises are true.
