Andrew Ross Davis

October 29, 2019

Andrew Ross Davis, of Wewahitchka, ran into the arms of Jesus on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2019.

Born Feb. 7, 2008, Ross was a warrior, fighting both Chiari Malformation and MPS III known as Sanfilippo Syndrome. While his time here was short, his mark on the lives and hearts of many will remain forever.

Ross is survived by his parents, Andrew and Jessica Davis, of Wewahitchka, and his younger sister, Meredith Kate, who is also a Sanfilippo Warrior; grandparents Rev. Nick and Janet Davis, of White City, and John and Sandra Slay, of Molino; special friends Jakwavian Gray, Brianna Shackelford and Charlene Dickens; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Visitation will be held Thursday, Oct. 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Family Life Center at First Baptist Church in Wewahitchka. Funeral services will be Friday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. The family welcomes those children who dearly loved Ross.

Kelley Funeral Home, Apalachicola is assisting the family in all arrangements.

Ross taught us how to live life to its fullest, how to bravely accept adversity with grace, how to find joy in life, and how to unselfishly love others. Ross could melt your heart with a smile and tell a story with his beautiful blue eyes. It is often said that one loses his or her battle with a disease, yet Ross did not lose. While our hearts are broken, we know that Ross is now in the “Lord’s Army – Yes Sir.”

    I have never read a more moving tribute.
