Ronnie Davis, Jr. Obituary

"The smallest act of kindness is love we leave behind."

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Ronnie Davis Jr, beloved husband of Nancy Alderete-Davis, who entered eternal life on Wednesday September 28th at the age of 53.

Ronnie was born on July 9th, 1970 in Lumberton North Carolina to Ronnie and Nancy Davis. 

Ronnie had a lifelong love of learning. He attended Hoke High School and North Carolina State University, receiving his associates degree in livestock and poultry science, followed by a degree in business management from Ashworth College in Norcross Georgia, graduating with honors in both programs.  In 2018 he earned his Master of Arts in Ministry from Piedmont International University, graduating Suma cum Laude.

Ronnie’s patriotism ran strong and in 2005 Ronnie felt the call to serve his country, joining the United States Army as a combat medic. He was assigned to the MP unit in Raleigh North Caolina.  

Ronnie built a successful business in the construction industry but his real passion was teaching.  He took pride in his school and his students; his dedication to learning and opening young minds to their possibilities earned him the love and respect from all who had the pleasure of working with him.

Nancy was the love of Ronnie’s life; they were married on December 28th 2005 in Fayetteville and together they built a life filled with faith, joy and the simple pleasure of being together.  

Ronnie had a knack for building, restoring and fixing things.  He loved to garden and was an avid music lover, preferring Mozart and Vivaldi as his driving companions.   Ancient history and World War II documentaries were two favorite hobbies, in addition to his love for British television shows, but his favorite pastime was restoring the home he and Nancy shared.

He will be remembered for his gentle and compassionate spirit and his love of rescuing shelter dogs that became four-legged children.  Ronnie believed you should always share your bed with at least 2 dogs!

Ronnie is survived by his parents and his brother Mark.  His legacy lives on in his students, who will live life to the fullest because Mr. Ronnie was their teacher.

A memorial service and celebration of Ronnie’s life will be held on October 3rd at 4pm at Crumpler Funeral Home, 131 Harris Ave, Raeford, NC

Memorial donations may be made in Ronnie’s name to the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society to honor his memory.
