Harry James Davis

Harry J. ''Jim'' Davis, born August 16, 1921, slipped away quietly July 28,2006 at age 84. Born in Blaine, ID as the oldest of six children to Ivan and Teresa Shane Davis, he graduated from Twin Falls high school. On October 1, 1943 he married Bonnie DeEtte Brown and was married 62 years. Jim served in the Navy's Pacific Theatre during WWII and the Korean War, later in 1951 moving to the Tri-Cities, where he owned and operated The Service Center until 1967. He later worked for Xerox until retirement in 1977. Jim and Bonnie enjoyed almost 30 years of travel and Arizona snow birding. He also managed the Davis homestead farm in Fairfield, ID. Jim loved to dance, fish, play cards and baseball, and was a faithful Mariner fan especially when they won. He was a member of the Elks, Masons and Active Club. Jim is survived by his loving wife, Bonnie and two daughters, Linda Davis-Brede Doug of Spokane and Laurel Smithwick Ron of Richland. Surviving siblings include Dorothy Humphrey Herb of Boise, Richard Davis of Sacramento, and Mary Lou Wokersien Kent of Twin Falls. Together Jim and Bonnie have four grandchildren; Tracie Dysart, MaryAnn Roberts, Michelle McCain, and John Smithwick; six great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother John Davis Shirley Larsen and sister Lalla Grommet Bill. Jim was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and a loyal, trustworthy friend. He will be missed for his humor and gentle ways. At his request there will be no service; memorial contributions can be made to Hospice.

  • Dear Bonnie,

    Brenda, Tressa, and I wish to extend to you our deepest sympathies. I’m sure you recall Tressa and I rented the north end of your duplex ’96-’97 while Brenda was in school. Tressa was only 5 at the time and everytime I lost track of her I knew she was with you and Jim having a great time. You and Jim where so good to us. We still think of you often with great fondness. Our prayers will be with you and Jim. God bless you, Jerome Birnbaum

  • I remember Jim and Bonnie from when they lived across the street from us on Holly during the late sixties and early seventies. Two of the nicest people you could ever meet. Jim worked for Xerox then, and Bonnie had her white Rambler wagon. Jim was always smiling and always had time to say hello. I know he will greatly missed.
