Michael E. Davis
Michael Eugene Davis, age 68, a resident of Grayslake, IL, passed away on November 4, 2022 at Condell Hospital in Libertyville, IL. He was born on September 26, 1954 in Kirksville, MO to Ken and Delores Davis.
Michael is survived by his wife of 44 years, Deborah (née Kepler); his mother, Delores (née Bell) Davis; his sons, Jason (Fabiola Escaray) Davis of Madrid, Spain and Brandon (Alexis Fogel) Davis of Oakland, CA; his granddaughters, Camila and Isabella; his brother-in-law, Mike Reynolds; his nieces, Jodee and Andrea; and his nephew, Jeremy.
He was preceded in death by his father, Ken Davis; and his sister, Patricia Reynolds.
Michael dedicated 33 years of employment at the United States Post Office before retiring in 2017. He was an active and proud member of the deaf community, having attended the Illinois School for the Deaf from 1961-1974. Michael met his wife at Waubonsee Community College and after quickly falling in love, planted roots in Lake County.
Michael and his wife were avid bowling, cornhole, ladders, and card players. They loved traveling the world together, visiting their boys and beautiful granddaughters, and spending time with their wonderful network of friends. Despite his wife’s love for the Cubs, he was a die-hard St. Louis Cardinals fan. Michael was blessed with many furry companions (Kia, Abe, and most recently Popcorn), and enjoyed brisk – but not too cold – walks with them in the snow.
Above all, Michael was a selflessly dedicated husband and father who will be dearly missed by the many who he touched through community, laughter, and games.
