David Davis

November 18, 1953 — July 10, 2016

David Kimble "Harley" Davis of Spanish Fork, Utah died peacefully on July 10, 2016 in Salt Lake City, Utah at the age of 62.

He is survived by his wife, Shelly Greenhalgh-Davis, one daughter, Katina Davis Uecker of Lockwood, Montana, four sons, David Jr. of Ramona, California, Bradford Davis of Laramie, Wyoming, Taylor Davis of Spanish Fork, Utah, Tristan Davis of Spanish Fork, Utah, and six grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his father David D. Davis, mother Juanita Floyd, and a son, Timothy Davis of Billings, Montana.

David was born on November 18, 1953 in Visalia, California to David and Juanita Davis. He spent much time living with his beloved grandparents in Pollock Pines, California. After high school graduation, he served in the U.S. Navy in a beach jumper unit during the Vietnam War. He married Trudy Premo in 1973 and they became parents to Katina, David Jr., Bradford, and T.J. They were divorced, and he married Shelly Greenhalgh in Orem, Utah on August 12, 1994. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple and became parents to Taylor and Tristan.

He was a resourceful man of numerous talents, which led him to many career and hobby arenas where he made a host of friends. Some of his notable accomplishments include working as a flight attendant and later director of flight services for Continental Airlines, designing a line of greeting cards, working as a mortgage loan officer and a real estate agent. The last several years of his life were taken up by antiques dealing, photography, and art. He has pieces in private collections worldwide. Not one to let grass grow under his feet, he even worked and thought up creative and artistic ideas from his bed during many hospital stays over the last two years. And he was known throughout the Veterans Hospital, and later the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City for his gifts of painting and artwork to the many hospital employees he came in contact with.

David was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and his love for his sweetheart and his children was second only to his strong testimony of his Savior Jesus Christ. His constant admonition to "Stay in the Boat" inspired many during their own troubled times.

A viewing will be held Friday, July 15, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. at the Spanish Fork Red Pines LDS Ward, 989 South 2550 East, Spanish Fork with funeral services following at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Spanish Fork Cemetery.
