Marvin Davis

July 31, 1956 — February 3, 2022

Marvin Roy Davis, 65 of Jumbo, left this life on Thursday, February 3, 2022 of a sudden illness. He was born July 31, 1956 in Buckhannon to the late Roy and Bessie “Ginnie” Howell Davis.

Davis is survived by his wife of 42 years, Vicki Postelwait Davis; two grandkids, Katie and Hunter Davis of Hacker Valley; brother, Butch (wife Margie) Davis of Jumbo; sister, Patricia Riffle of Jumbo; his fur-baby, Timmy; and many nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends who will mourn his passing.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Brian Keith Davis; and brothers, Jerry, Perry, Raymond, Robert, and Homer Davis.

He was a coal miner for almost 46 years and a huge George Jones fan. He was a social butterfly who never knew a stranger. He loved spending time with his grandkids, friends, and family. He would have given anyone the shirt off his back, the last dollar in his wallet, or anything else to be selfless. In the end he always had a sense of humor and was loved by so many. He will always be missed and remembered.
