It is with much sorrow to announce the passing of our Father, John Elkins Davis. He was a member of Chimney Rock Baptist Church in Lake Lure, NC. We think he lived a very full life, one that many don't have the chance to experience. With some of this, he carried with him great sorrow and he did his best to make amends where he could. He had a huge heart, and went out of his way to help the feral cats and other critters that would come to his back door. He moved to the mountains because he loved it there; he loved the peace and quiet, and the fact there weren't too many humans around. He was one of God's kids and he's finally free from the demons that sometimes made his days dark. He will be missed and is loved by all three of his daughters. John was the widow of his second wife Barbara Davis who died two years ago. He is survived by his three daughters, Leah Olafson, Lorra Schmid and Beth Davis. Grandchildren Brian, Ashley, Forrest, Jessica, Luke and Edith A. Carson the mother of his children.
