Augusta Davis, Jr. Obituary

That dash represents all the time, that I spent alive on earth.

And now only those who loved me, know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own, The cars ... the house ... the cash.

What matters is how we live and love And how we spend our dash.



Augusta Davis, Jr. was born on January 7, 1958, to the late Augusta, Sr. and Lillie Mae Davis in Ocala, Florida.

He attended the public schools of Marion County; graduating from Vanguard High School with the class of 1976.

He enjoyed work as a construction worker and retired from Pinder Masonry. 

Augusta accepted Christ as his Lord and Saviour at an early age and was united with New St. John Missionary Baptist Church where he served on the Usher Board.

He was best known for his humble attitude and his overall positive & faith-filled personality. Augusta enjoyed reading the Bible, listening to gospel music, playing basketball, and giving nicknames to all of his nieces and nephews.
