Kyle Isaac Davis
August 17, 1922 ~ June 10, 2014
Kyle I. Davis, a lifetime resident of Wenatchee, WA, died June 10, 2014, at the age of 91. Kyle was born August 17, 1922, to Isaac and Ada Davis on the homestead property of his grandfather, Charles I. Davis. He spent his childhood here with his three brothers, Charles, Kirby, and Boyd. His family believes much of his interesting character was developed here on Mulberry Lane, with the help of his brothers and a best friend, Jack Koehler. After graduating from Wenatchee High School, Kyle was drafted into the Army, serving in the Quartermaster Corps. Kyle organized and provided supplies while stationed in Seattle and Burma, India. One of his duties included radio communications, earning him the nickname “Radar,” coined by his friend, John, in his later years. It was during this time, that he lost his best friend, Jack, who was also serving in the Army. Kyle held memories of Jack dear throughout his life. After serving in the Army, Kyle attended Oregon (Illinois) Bible College. While attending, his singing quartet performed at many local churches, including South Bend’s Hope Chapel, where he met and married Mary O’Neil. Upon graduation, Kyle and Mary eventually moved back to Wenatchee and raised their five children on the same family homestead. He continued his lifetime commitment to the Wenatchee Church of God-Faith of Abraham, where he was well known for his rich baritone voice. Kyle worked as a plumber for Padochek Plumbing for many years, before starting his own Du-All Plumbing business until his retirement. Throughout his life, Kyle made many friends due to his positive attitude, his quirky and endearing sense of humor, but most of all, his kindness. He spent nearly all of his days on his ordinary homestead, yet he managed to find simple joy in an interesting rock, his bountiful garden, or a lovely flower for Mary. Our family is very comforted by the fact that he never had to leave his beloved home.
He is survived by his loving wife, Mary; his children, Miriam (Steve) Overland, Edward (Nita) Davis, Blair (Priscilla) Davis, Lisa (George) Dockins, and Laura (Jay) Fulbright; his 12 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 21, 2014, at 3:00 p.m. at the Wenatchee Church of God, 1835 N. Western Avenue.
