Davis, Evan Donald “Don”
July 1, 1926-July 4, 2019
Don passed away at Lakewood Memory Center after an 8 year struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Rose; four children Daniel (Donna) Davis of Roswell, NM, Susan (Douglas) Brown of Evergreen, CO, John (Zahra) Davis of Lafayette, CO, James (Jennifer) Davis of Fredonia, NY; 9 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren. Don served in the US Navy from 1944-1946, US Army from 1950-1952. He served in the Ohio National Guard between those years. He was very proud of service years and was a true patriot. Don’s lifelong passion was acting, and he was always “on stage”. He appeared in local productions from high school, college and wherever he lived. His humor was always present and he genuinely liked people.
His civilian career for over 30 years was with the Social Security Administration and helped account for his family’s moves-20 in all. In retirement he loved the high mountain lakes for fishing.

Memories Timeline


  1. Rose, Sue, John, Jim, Don and your families,

    I am sending my love and prayers for you during this difficult time of Don’s passing into being at peace with God. The celebration of life pictures are nice and Don’s pictures of him throughout the years reflect him well as to the wonderful man he was. So glad I got to visit these past couple of years with him and you all and when we all came out in 2012 too. I am glad we have all reconnected and are family.
