Dr. William M Davis, of Dawson Springs, passed away March 4, 2023, at the age 80.
Bill was born November 17, 1942, in Milwaukee and grew up there and in Chicago. He worked in a variety of jobs in his younger years: he worked in a silver mine and on a lake freighter, he enlisted in the army and served in Viet Nam, he was a zookeeper at Brookfield Zoo, and he studied dragonflies and starlings. After several years working as a nurse in Chicago, he became a podiatrist. He moved to Kentucky in 1985 and practiced at the Trover Clinics in Madisonville, Hopkinsville, and Dawson Springs until his retirement.
Bill enjoyed walking in the woods and traveling the world. He loved his many dogs and his other pets over the years: fish, ducks, geese, a pig, peacocks, and more.
Bill is survived by his daughter Nina Brewer-Davis of Oak Park, IL, and son Charlie Davis, of Dawson Springs, as well as his grandchildren Rune and Susanna, son-in-law Michael Brewer-Davis, and former spouse Betsy Davis.
No service is planned.
