Guntown – Robert “Bob” Lee Davis, 65, was born July 05, 1955 and passed from this life on Monday, July 27, 2020. Bob was born, raised and spent his entire life in Guntown, the one place he believed to be the center of the universe. Bob served his beloved hometown for 12 years as an alderman and 8 years as mayor. He drove a truck for CF for 20 years and worked for Lee County for 15 years and was an active member of Guntown Lions Club. Bob loved to hunt, fish, and cruise with his family. He loved his truck, being outdoors and spending time visiting with friends and family in his man cave. Bob spent many summers at Pickwick, pulling all the kids, friends, and family behind his boat. He taught so many people to ski and was an expert barefoot skier. Bob’s greatest love on this earth was his wife of 37 years, Kathy Davis and son Lee Davis. He made sure his nieces and nephews knew he loved them like his own children.
