James "Jim" Daniel Davis

May 16, 1933 ~ November 3, 2021 (age 88)


Musings, By Jim Davis

Married the love of my life, Pauline, September 2, 1951.

Celebrated fifty great years of marriage, September 2, 2001.

Stood in an empty tomb in Jerusalem and thanked God for the Resurrection!

Marveled at the beauty of a western sunset.

Wept when seeing the ocean for the first time.

Looked toward heaven on a clear star-spangled night and was overwhelmed at how great

God is and how small I am.

Thanked God for all the thigs that didn’t happen to me.


At midnight, swam in the pool of Aggie Grey’s on Western Samoa with my friend, Linfield Crowder.

Ate the biggest and best lobster tail ever with Ray and Becky Sparre on the island of Ponape.


Have only three regrets in my lifetime

  1. All the dumb things I ever thought.

  2. All the dumb things I ever said.

  3. All the dumb things I ever did!

 Besides those I can’t think of anything else.


     James Daniel Davis was born May 16, 1933 and went to be with the Lord November 3, 2021.

     He is preceded in death by the love of his life - Laura Pauline Davis; daughter - Linda Kay Combs and too many family members and friends to mention.

     Jim and Pauline were in full time ministry their entire lives.  They pastored five churches, built numerous churches, preached all over the world in some of the largest and smallest churches and mission stations.
