Kenneth A. Davis

North Yarmouth – Kenneth Austin Davis, 64 of North Yarmouth went to be with the Lord on Wednesday April 30, 2014, surrounded by his family, after a valiant 14 year battle with throat cancer before succumbing to complications of COPD; leaving behind the love of his life, Bonniejean (Nimblett) Davis, his wife of ten and a half years.

Kenny was born November 17, 1949 in Bangor Maine a son of the late Harold and Doris (Gaddas) Davis. He attended school in Ellsworth, Maine, where he could be found playing baseball or racing cars in Winterport. He was a U.S. Army Veteran; he served three tours in Vietnam as a heavy equipment mechanic. He was a fisherman by trade, harvesting fish, scallops and lobster in several places including Frenchboro. Being surrounded many wonderful fisherman and friends.

Ken also loved to garden, his yard was his pride and joy. He also enjoyed feeding the birds in his yard, building bird feeders for many of them.  He also leaves his beloved dog Norman and his Maine Coon-Cat, Black Cat George. Ken also enjoyed his road trips with a wonderful kid and fishing partner, his step son Mike Brown. They would travel to the island of Frenchboro, Stonington and Deer Isle. His “Neighborhood Family” will surely miss his Kubota Tracker and Snow blower next winter almost as much as they will miss Kenny.

Along with his wife and parents he leaves behind many loving family members: Two step sons Christopher and John, his Daughters April Dawn (Davis) Curtis and her husband.  He also leaves three very special grandchildren; Elijah and Amber Wiggins and Harley Nimblett. Who were all by his side to comfort him as he said goodbye. Ken also leaves a sister Linda (Davis) Griffin and her husband Scott. He also leaves three half-brothers and his lifelong and best friend Joseph Martin.  He was also the uncle of the late Ed Raymond York.

Through his battle with cancer he was treated by the wonderful staff at Tougus. This was his home away from home; he made many new friends and extended “family” during his time there, most notably John Lunt and his wife Rebecca.  John having ended his battle before Ken, he was deeply missed.  We would like to thank Dr. Lemay and the staff for taking such wonderful care of such a dear man.

Kenny will be laid to rest in Forest Hill Cemetery in Lamoine.

Family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of life on Sunday May 11th at Noon at the Davis residence: 261 Hallowell Rd North Yarmouth, Maine.
