Larnell Kevin Davis, Sr., “Lonnie”
Place of birth: Galveston, Texas
Religious affiliation: Christian
Larnell Kevin Davis, Sr., affectionately known as “Lonnie,” was born May 24, 1952, in Galveston, Texas, but moved to Oakland, California at the age of three months with his parents, Earl Davis, Sr. (deceased) and Lottie Mae Valrey. Receiving his education through the Oakland Unified School District, Lonnie was active in sports, an interest which followed him throughout his life. Everyone who knew Lonnie was aware of his passion for football, and his devotion to the Oakland Raiders. But his greatest devotion was to God and his family. Lonnie accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior when he became an adult, and was always ready to share the Word with anyone willing to listen. He had an amazing testimony, and never hesitated to praise God for bringing him through every challenge. Lonnie adored his family members, and truly cherished his relationships with each of them. He was overjoyed to have found his soulmate, Flora, and spent the last eleven years building their life together, joining their two families into one. He passed away, peacefully, on Sunday, December 11, 2016, after a year-long battle with liver cancer.
He leaves to cherish his memories: his wife, Flora Thomas-Davis; his children, Ishea Monique Davis-Wardy (Raymond), Larnell Kevin Davis, Jr. (Jackie), and Valerie Jeneen Davis; his step-children, Allen Richard Brown, Sr. and Darrel Jerome Brown; his grandchildren, Jerica Shanice Binns, Jerelle Martice Binns, and Jerald Mitchell Binns, his great grand child, Nahla Aubrey Roberson; his step-grandchildren, Samara Nicole Preston, Allen Richard Brown, Jr., and Zoe’ Allison Brown; his mother, Lottie Mae Valrey; his sisters, Sandra Davis-Smith and Donna Kay Davis; his brother, Raymond Davis, Sr. (Shirl); and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
We will honor my Lonnie’s memory with two services.
His Family Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, December 17, 2016, at 3:00 p.m., at the Mt. Herman Baptist Church, Hwy. 1, Lena, LA 71447. Friends are welcome to come.
His second service, A Home-going Celebration, will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2017, at 11:00 a.m., at his church home, Jubilee Christian Center, 14595 Florida Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA 70819. We are inviting all of our family and friends to come and help us celebrate his undying faith, a faith he expressed up until he could no longer speak.
