Bobby Dean Davis was born April 19, 1942 in Clarksville, Texas to the late Robert and Jezebel Davis. After graduating from high school in Clarksville, TX, Bobby moved to Wichita, KS for period of time before settling in Wichita Falls, Texas around 1980 where he resided for almost 40 years until his passing on December 20, 2020.
Bobby worked at the State Hospital in Wichita Falls, Texas from around the time he settled in Wichita Falls, TX where he was the housekeeping supervisor until the time of his retirement in 2004.
Bobby was affectionately known as “Chicken” amongst his family and friends. What Bobby loved most was spending time with his family and friends. Bobby was at his best when amongst the Davis family, of which he was most proud and of whom he most deeply cherished.
The love of Bobby’s life was Carla Coleman. Bobby and Carla became special to one another in 1991 until Bobby took his last breath on December 20, 2020 at 9:55 am. Bobby instantly became a member of the Sedberry-Coleman family. Bobby also became a beloved stepdad to Tammy, Willie D, Weenie Man (James) and Honeycakes (Monique). He never missed an event or celebration, from football games and other high school events, to the birth of his grandchildren, to family celebrations, weddings, family reunions, or general family gatherings. Bobby was there and was always happy and smiling. The Sedberry-Coleman family also came to affectionately call Bobby “Chicken” as well as “Uncle Bobby” and “Paw-Paw”!

Davis, Johnnie Mae Leak, and Ethel Jewel Davis; four brothers Robert Lee Davis, J.D. Davis, Billy Darnell Davis, and Herman Eugene Davis, Sr. Bobby was the sole surviving member of his immediate family of eleven, until December 20, 2020 when the Lord called him home to reunite with his beloved mom, dad, brothers and sisters.
