Nick Davis was "a soft and gentle guy"
Nicholas Allen Davis, 33, of Roscoe, IL, was born in River Falls, WI on March 20, 1989 to Kelly Davis and Shannon Davis. Nick's creativity was obvious. He enjoyed art and music of all types, especially rock and rap. His family says Nick was "a soft and gentle guy" who would do anything to help someone out, even if it was just to make them laugh.
Nick passed away on July 28, 2022 in Rockford, IL.
Nick had great relationships with all his family members, with whom he was very close, but his family says "his heart belonged to his two daughters. Nick was extremely loved and will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him."
After his death, his sister Haley wrote on Facebook that she used to think Nick "went out of his way to make things hard for himself, but as I got older I realized that it was the challenge that he liked. There was no telling him no. If he wanted to do it, he would do it. He was wild, fearless, kind, timid, goofy and eccentric."
Nick is survived by his daughters, Kailie and Angel; his parents, Kelly Davis and Shannon Davis; his sister, Haley (Andrew Beckmeier) Davis; his maternal grandparents, Rodney and Jackie Moody; his paternal grandmother, Donna Davis; his uncles, Kevin Davis, Kyle Davis, Kris Davis, and Chris Moody; his aunt, Kimberly Murphy; and numerous cousins.
A memorial gathering will be held from 11 a.m.– 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 6, 2022 at Sunset Funeral Home, 8800 N. Alpine Rd., Machesney Park, IL 61115.
