Charles “Charlie” Lee Davis, 80, of Bedias, Texas, passed away Friday, March 22, 2019 at St. Luke’s Hospital.

Funeral services will be held 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at Emken-Linton Funeral Home. Visitation will be held 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., Monday, April 1, 2019 at Emken-Linton Funeral Home in Texas City.

Charles “Charlie” Lee Davis was born February 27, 1939 in Bedias, Texas. Shortly thereafter, his family moved to Texas City where he grew up. During high school, he raised and fed out the Grand Champion calf in the Galveston County Fair. After graduating Texas City High School, he joined the United States Air Force and was stationed in El Paso, Texas and Alaska as a Cryogenic Liquid Production Specialist.

Charles “Charlie” Lee Davis entered into the labor force at Monsanto after his honorable discharge from the USAF and apprenticed into the machinist trade at Monsanto in Texas City. He spent his career and retired from there until Monsanto was purchased by Sterling Chemical. He continued with Sterling Chemical and was promoted to leadman over the valve shop whereby his skills aided them to achieve high awards with OSHA and others. He ultimately retired from Sterling Chemical. During his career with the refineries he also served as a Galveston County Sheriff’s Officer and a Kemah Police Officer. He also spent some time as a commercial fisherman shrimping the local waters of Texas City, Seabrook, Matagorda and others. Charlie was a devoted family man and worked hard at the refineries and extra jobs strictly out of love and dedication to them and their needs. Later he went on to beat cancer twice, just to show how tough and strong-willed he was.

Charles “Charlie” Lee Davis was preceded in death by his father – Robert E. Lee Davis, mother – Nannie Pauline Davis, younger brother – Vernon Davis, wife – Barbara Ann Davis.

His survivors include his son – Ricky Lee Davis, daughter-in-law – Pamela Ann Davis, grandchildren – Tiffany Davis, Abram Isaac Davis, Ray McLaughlin and Justin Trammell, his youngest brother – Robert Allan Davis and his children Darlene and Eddie Davis.

Charles was a personal friend of mine....eventually. He worked in Kemah and arrested my beloved Daddy when I was not more than a teen.

I hated him for arresting him, and told him so. I ranted and raved about how he dared to put MY DADDY in JAIL!

WHO did he think he was?

He sat and listened to me, then after I had finished, he asked me to listen to him speak. Reluctantly, and even though I was fuming, I did listen to him, where my mindset completely changed!

Basically, all he did was ask me a couple of questions that hit home with me, and showed me some pictures of dead people who had lost their lives because they did not get arrested, and were driving drunk.

He asked me to answer these questions. #1) Would I rather come tomorrow after my Daddy had sobered up and pick him up ALIVE and well, or, #2) Would I have rathered identify his DEAD body at the morgue - IF it was identifiable?

He stated that by arresting my Daddy and getting him off the streets he just may have saved not only his life, but the lives of others.

He asked me to think about that. He stated that I could go on hating him forever if I wanted to - but, this time, at least, my precious Daddy would be able to come home to me ALIVE and well.

So, with that thought in mind, I apologized and actually thanked him for arresting my Daddy!
Then, years later, I worked with him at Monsanto where he was known as 'Crazy Dave' who was a very intelligent and fun-loving guy who laughed at me and teased me about how I had approached him so many years ago as a spoiled Daddy's girl brat.

I loved Crazy Dave as I'm sure many others did. He could have just ignored me that night, but instead, he took the time to make me understand why he was doing the job he did.

It was because he cared that he made a huge difference in my life, and probably many others.

Rest in peace, Crazy Dave. This spoiled brat loved and appreciated you!
