Davis, Kenneth 'Ken' Walter

December 15th, 2018

Peacefully at Westmount Gardens, London, on Saturday, December 15th, 2018, in his 82nd year. Only child of the late Walter Davis and the late Verna D. (Vanstone) Davis, Ken will be greatly missed by his wife of 56 years, Noreen (Lang) Davis; his children:  Lynn Davis and Rick Davis (Joanne); grandchildren:  Jordan, Nicole, Ashley and Braden; his Lang brothers and sisters-in-law; his nieces and nephews, and his countless cousins. Ken had a love of cars that extended from his time behind the wheel of a roadster in his early 20s to numerous vehicle refurbishments over the years, including extensive work of his beloved ’66 Chevelle convertible. He enjoyed swapping car stories at Billy T’s with the guys over dinner, and watching the sun set over Lake Huron at the family cottage in Bayfield, Ontario. The family would like to extend sincere thanks to the staff at Westmount Gardens for their exceptional care. A memorial service will be conducted at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, on Thursday, December 20th, 2018 at 4:00 p.m., with visitation one hour prior. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to The Verna D. Davis Family Foundation at the London Community Foundation, the Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario or a charity of your choice.
