He is also survived by his ex-wife Karen Matthews, who remained a life-long friend, and numerous nieces and nephews, whom he loved. He is preceded in death by his mother, Phyllis Irene (Teaster) Davison.
Lee was born in Washington, DC on November 17, 1967, to Harry and Phyllis Davison. He was a life-time skilled Heating and Air Conditioning Master Technician, serving as a Field Supervisor and as his family’s personal HVAC guy for years. He was even one of the originals in the HVAC department at My Plumber, his place of employment, which he loved dearly because of the co-workers who were his extended family.
Lee loved hunting, bass fishing, and the outdoors. Although he became a bit of a softy in the end, letting the “little guys” walk past, he was happiest in his tree stand or talking about hunting with his children. He could almost always be seen with a cup of coffee or a Pepsi in hand, and his grandchildren knew they would be met with a bag of M&M’s anytime they saw their Papa. He was an intelligent man and was known by most for his smile and goofy jokes. He will be deeply missed by family and friends and all who knew him.
The family will receive visitors at 9:00 a.m. followed by a funeral service at 10:00 a.m. on June 23, 2020 at Johnson Funeral Home in Locust Grove, VA. Reverend Alan Miller will officiate. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association (DC Chapter), an organization he was proud to support through his place of employment.
Lee will be buried alongside his ancestors in the Fairfields Baptist Church Cemetery in Burgess, Virginia.
