Tombstone Tuesday – Woody Burl Davis (1925 – 2001)
Woody Burl Davis, my grand uncle, was born 9/26/1925 in Mexia, Texas, to Sherman and Margie Davis (Kirkpatrick.) The oldest of four children, Woody served as a Private with the United States Marine Corps during World War II (see earlier post.)
“W. B.” married Marjorie Ann Johnson and had three children: Judy Kay, Cheryl, and John. He worked for the Mexia State School, a residential facility for those with developmental disabilities. Woody passed away on June 22, 2001, in College Station, Texas. He was buried in Point Enterprise Cemetery, located in Mexia.
I remember visiting the Point Enterprise Cemetery while living in College Station. My wife and I took a short road trip to visit Woody’s gravesite and took the pictures just before sunset.
