James “Thomas” Davis departed this life on Saturday, Feb. 21, at his home in Sardis, at the age of 75 years and 23 days.
He was born on Jan. 29, 1940, son to the late James Curtis and Winnie Marie Ellis Davis. He was united in marriage to Cathey Gail Dickson on Dec. 31, 1970, who survives.
Mr. Davis graduated from Saltillo High School in 1959.
