Joseph "Joe" Davis

August 26, 1943 — August 25, 2022

Joseph “Joe” P. Davis, of Vienna, Ohio, entered into the celestial lodge above on Thursday, August 25, 2022, while a patient in Sharon Regional Hospital following a period of declining health. He was 78.

Joseph was born in New Castle, Pennsylvania on August 26, 1943, a son to Richard C. & Maxine (DeLillo) Davis.

He graduated from Neshannock High School in 1961 and furthered his education by attending Youngstown College. He would later receive a degree in Human Resources from Geneva College.

He proudly served in the United States Army and Army Reserves from 1966-1971. He was honorably discharged from his duties with the rank of Specialist E-5.

The majority of his working career was spent as a district salesman in the power equipment industry, where he retired from Power Equipment Distributors in 2008. Some may remember him also as a Sales Representative for the A&H Buehrle Company, where he sold Polaris Snowmobiles.

He was a member of the Copper Penny Lodge #778, F&AM, Vienna; 32 Degree Mason of the Ancient Accepted Order of Scottish Rite, Valley of Youngstown; Charter Member & former Secretary of the Ohio State Snowmobile Association; Mahoning Valley Snow Seekers Snowmobile Club, and Marienville Trail Riders Snowmobile Club.

Along with snowmobiling, he had a great passion for drag racing and spending time with his family & friends at the drag strip. Most of all, he loved being with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Survivors include: son, Kevin Davis & his wife Cyndi, of Hermitage, Pennsylvania; daughter, Shea Davis, of Vienna; granddaughters, Winter & Danika Davis; sister, Sherry Schaas, of Castle Shannon, Pennsylvania; and very dear friend, Royce Audia.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and wife, Jean A. (Scocchera) Davis, whom he married August 21, 1965, she passed on July 31, 2013.
