Leslie W. Davis Jr.

Port Republic, Md., 45

Leslie William Davis Jr., 45, Port Republic, Md., died at his residence the week of March 26, 2012.

Known as Billy, he was born April 10, 1966, in Mc- Connellsburg, to Rev. William E. and Nita Lee (Mc- Kee) Davis.

He graduated from Calvert High School in 1984. He later graduated from Lincoln Tech Institute to further his vocation as an auto mechanic. He later furthered his career by earning the title of Senior Master Ford Technician, earning a cruise and multiple prizes and awards. He worked at various Ford dealerships before his last and final position as a mechanic for the Metropolitan Police of Washington, D.C., being humbled by them driving Impalas.

He enjoyed fast cars, boating, camping, skiing, cruising and selling items on Ebay. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family and his dogs, especially his soulmate English bulldog he called “Meathead.” His family and dogs were always the highlight of his life and he made sure he was always there for them, as he knew that time was precious to him. He would respond to his very worst day as being “on top of the world.”

He is survived by his parents and two sisters: Kimberly Dove of Manassas, Va., and Lanita Hance of Prince Frederick, Md; and five nephews. He was a loving son, brother and uncle whom one could always depend on. He expressed his faith in God, looked up to his parents, looked after his sisters and mentored his nephews, expressing the importance of respect, gratitude and appreciation to everyone. He will be greatly missed.
