Deacon Herbert Davis, 78, was removed from our presence to be with his Lord and Savior at Coral Gables Hospital, Coral Gables, Florida on April 8, 2013. Born in Sumter on February 16, 1935, he was the son of the late Hazel and Inez Davis. His early education and religious experiences began during his childhood in the Sumter. Later, he moved to Miami, Florida where his life’s journey continued.
For 30 years, he was a dedicated and diligent worker at the Riviera Country Club. Herbert, a God-fearing man, joined in fellowship with the Beulah Missionary Baptist Church, where he was a faithful and dedicated member. He proved himself worthy and was ordained as a Deacon.
