William Samuel “Billy” Davis, 61, of Magnolia died Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at his home.
Billy was born August 15, 1959 in Magnolia to Verma Cooke. He married the love of his life Donna Orren, September 15, 1977. He began his career at Howmet, now Hydro, 43 years ago.

He served as a deacon and Sunday school teacher for the Village Baptist Church. He was a member and served on the Village Volunteer Fire Department.
