RAY DAVIS Jr., was born on January 21, 1952 to the late Ray Davis Sr. and Alberta Harrison Davis.  He was educated in the Orleans Parish Public School System.  He was employed at Acadian Coach Lines Industries of Kenner La.  He was an outstanding worker who was talented in his profession and had a sense of humor with all who knew him.

Ray was united in matrimony to Sonita Jackson Davis in 1994 and was blessed to spend 26 years together through good and bad times.

Sadly on Friday April 17, 2020 a page turned and closed in the life of Ray Davis Jr.
