Robert L. Davis

Robert "Bob" Lee Davis passed away in his home surrounded by family on Friday, November 4, 2022. He was born in Norfolk, VA, on December 31, 1958, to Margaret M. Davis (Ronchetto) and Richard Davis. Bob moved to Illinois with his family when he was 10 years old.

Bob was an avid fisherman and loved tinkering with fishing lures and poles. He also enjoyed hunting and being outdoors. Bob would look for wildlife while on road trips with his family. He also had fun playing slot machines and traveling to different states with his family. Bob was a fan of the Chicago Cubs and the Green Bay Packers. He loved all animals, especially his family dogs. In his younger years, Bob enjoyed swimming at the Washington Park Pool and walking around the Washington Square. He was recognized wherever he went.

Bob was well-known around the community of Washington. He would often be seen walking to the movie theater and attending football games. No one was a stranger to Bob. He loved talking to everyone he met. He could light up a room with his smile and laugh. Every person who knew Bob had at least one story they could share. He left an impact on every person he has ever spoken to. 

Bob was an angel on earth. He had the kindest heart and soul. He would do anything for his loved ones and even for people he didn't know. More than anything, Bob loved his family unconditionally.
