Let the memory of Willie be with us forever

Willie Davidson was born on December 7, 1939 in West Point, GA. He was the oldest of three children born to the late Willie James and Isabella Davidson. His brother, George and sister, Bertha, preceded him in death.

Willie received his former education at Harrison High School, West Point, GA.

Willie moved to Detroit, MI in 1965 in search of employment. It was here that he met Sarah Latamore. They were joined in Holy Matrimony in 1966. To this union a daughter, Donnella, was born.

Willie confessed his life to Christ at an early age. Before becoming ill, he attended First Philippian Grace in Redford under the pastorship of Rev. Wilson Watkins.

Willie worked at Wayne State University for 30 years until his retirement. Willie, also, worked for “Boss Foss” as he so emphatically implied. This employment led to an everlasting special friendship with Mr. Donald Foss that he treasured until he departed this life.

“Cadillac Willie” or “Mop” ,as he was affectionately called by his closest friends and family, was a caring man. He was dependable and would always do things for friends and family when needed. He was good at delegating or as he called it “supervising”. He enjoyed visiting with friends and family, traveling to Georgia (“down home’), going to the casino, and playing cards. Not a holiday passed in which he did not try and visit everybody. There are no words that can express the great loss we all are suffering with his passing.

The sincerity and dedication to friends and family that Willie so often exhibited was faithfully reciprocated in his last days. Douglas, Rick, Austin, Calvin, Kimmy an Dasha were diligent with providing companionship, support and assistance with all his needs. He was truly grateful.

On Wednesday, October 26, 2011, Mr. Willie Davidson departed this life peacefully with Douglas by his side in the comfort of his home.

He leaves to cherish and celebrate his life and memories: two daughters, Donnella James(Jerald) and Sheree Jones; two grandchildren, Cortez Davidson and Kayla James; devoted companion, Deborah McCullum; close friends and sister-in-law, Shelley Latamore, cherished friends, Mr. Donald Foss; two close cousins, Douglas and Rick, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends.
