John F. (Jack) Davis, 62, of Greeley, Colo., passed away August 14, 2010 after a long battle with cancer under care by hospice.

He was born in Meeker, Colo., on Jan. 23, 1948, to Herbert Lester Davis and Iris Florane Lovelace. The family lived in a log cabin on Jack’s granddad’s homestead for a little over three years. When he was three, a brother Edwin L. Davis was born and they moved to Portland, Ore., because Jack’s Dad had been called up for the Korean Conflict.

The family lived in Portland, Ore., for six years until moving back to Colorado when Jack was about 9 years old. He graduated from Meeker High School in 1966. Later that year, he joined the Army Security Agency as an analyst. He left the Army in 1969 and worked in farming and construction until the early 1970s when he moved to Greeley, Colo.

In Greeley, Colo., Jack started and ran a successful lawn care company called Davis Lawn Care for more than 20 years. In 1976, he met the love of his life, Charlotte G. LeBlanc. He finally persuaded her to marry him on July 4, 1978. All of the really great things in his life have come from Char, including two children. Cassandra Iris (Cassie) was born on July 18, 1980, and Justin Tyler on Sept. 8, 1985. The family moved to Nunn, Colo., in 1991, where they renovated and lived in the old school house there until 2007.

Jack finally graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 1995. In 1998, he graduated from the University of Wyoming College of Law; the same year Cassie graduated from Highland High School and Char received her master’s degree from UNC.

He practiced law in Weld County and was a member of the Weld County Bar Association until he became too ill to continue his practice in 2008. One of his greatest honors in life was to be a member of that bar association and to practice law in Colorado. In 2004, he was presented with the A. Andrew Borg Award for his volunteer Pro Bono services in support of Weld County Legal Services.
