Obituary of Alan Davison

Alan E. Davison, 82, of Concord Township, Ohio, passed away on Friday, May 18, 2018, surrounded by his family.  Born in Greene Township, Trumbull County, Ohio, he graduated in 1954 from Greene School.  Alan was a loving father and known by all to be a hard worker.  He grew up on his father's 104-acre dairy farm and worked over the years as a farmer, a machinist, and primarily as a carpenter.  

 

Baptized as one of Jehovah's Witness on August 28, 1954 in Ashtabula, he regularly shared as a volunteer minister teaching the Bible to others and by helping others in his congregation.  He loved traveling with his family and reading about history.  He loved bluegrass music and enjoyed playing banjo and fiddle.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.  

 

Alan was married in 1962 to Judith Anne (Judy) Wilmot and they were married for 52 years until her death in 2014.  Alan and Judy lived in Gustavus and Greene Townships following their marriage, and then moved in 1975 to expand their ministry and help teach people the Bible in Marion, NC.  After that, the family moved to Covington, GA and then to Conyers, GA, before moving back to Ohio.  Alan is survived by his daughters Lisa (Rick) Roeder of Concord Township, and Angela (Will) Connor of Oxford, Georgia; and by his son Joel Davison of Concord Township; his brother Jack (Carol) Davison of Greene Township; sister Beulah Broviak of Downers Grove, Illinois; as well as by many loving nieces and nephews and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents William and Stella (Hicks) Davison and by his sisters Marion Moore and Barbara Ruesken.

 

Visitation with the family will be from 4pm-5pm on Sunday, June 10 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 3043 Bradley Brownlee Road, Cortland, Ohio 44410, with a memorial service immediately following at 5pm.  The family will hold a private burial of ashes at the Claridon Center Cemetery on a future date.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the worldwide work of Jehovah's Witnesses at JW.ORG (https://apps.jw.org/E_DONATE).
