He was born on October 3, 1941 in Pulaski, Virginia to Dennis and Lou Davis.

Billy proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corp from July 10, 1961 until July 9, 1965. He was a Radio Relay Operator, serving off the coast of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He received a good conduct medal and was a lifetime member of the VFW.

Billy was a carpenter and retired from the Corvette Plant in Bowling Green. Billy loved hunting, fishing, riding horses and wood working. He enjoyed being an "extra" in plays at the Barn Lot Theater. One of his favorite things was making homemade ice-cream at family gatherings. He was a member of the Refuge Church of Christ where he and Charlotte were active taking the senior members on many trips to various places. He spent several summers at Taylor Christian Camp with his church family. Billy was always up to something and liked to joke with everyone he was around. The short time he was a resident at NHC he made numerous friends with the staff as well as residents. His favorite person there was his roommate, Johnny.

Proceeded in death by his parents, he is survived by his brother, Mikell Davis, his loving wife of 58 years, Charlotte Dunham Davis, his older son, Billy Wayne Davis, Sr., younger son, Boyd Heath Davis (Sandy), and his daughter, Heather Davis Clements (Larry).
