Obituary of James W. Davis

James W. Davis (JD) of West Nyack passed away on July 6, 2019 at the age of 61 surrounded by his loved ones.  He had a passion for life and right up until the end maintained his positive outlook while battling with dignity the Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) he was diagnosed with 3 years ago.

He was born February 17, 1958 to Betty and Paul W. Davis in Ithaca, NY.


He met his Wife, Wendy in college at Denison University, Granville, Ohio. They married in 1986 and together they raised two amazing sons , Scott and Kyle.  


Jim was in the gift and party sales line of business but his love was coaching in the Clarkstown Soccer Sports Club for 9 years and the West Nyack Little League.  

Some of his greatest joy came from golfing, caddying regularly at Mt. Kisco Country Club, fishing and playing on the Rockland Rugby team for years but after a broken femur and a fractured clavicle Wendy said "enough is enough!!"


In addition to his wife, Wendy, Jim is survived by his oldest son, Scott and fiance Abby, son Kyle and wife Mollie, his brother Michael, father Paul W. Davis and  stepmother Priscilla and his devoted loving aide, Wideline.  

His mother, Betty and sister Kristen both preceded him in death.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  His infectious sense of humor and wit was definitely inherited by both of his sons. 


Relatives and friends are invited on Saturday July 20, 2019 from 2-4 PM at the Joseph Sorce Funeral Home in West Nyack for a memorial and celebration of JD's life.
