I am sorry for the loss of this loved one. He wore the symbol of honesty and integrity to the highest level. A man of service to his country, community, church, friends and his family. I always enjoyed working with on projects, both in Eden and at the beach. My sympathy and prayers are extended to the family during these tough times and the days ahead.

Jimmy Davidson is fondly remember by the seven children of Garrett and Fay Neal. He was always friendly and smiling and a great support to us when Daddy died. When we were small children, we were always thrilled to ride in the back of his pickup truck through downtown Leaksville. I am sad to learn of his death and pray God's comfort and love for his family. Mary Fay Neal Cagle

I remember going to Mr. Davidson's store on Washington Street as a small child. I was usually with my grandparents, Charlie and Lillian Duke, as they were regular customers. They thought so highly of Mr. Davidson; he went the extra mile for them, always giving them excellent customer service. My condolences to the family. Jennie Smart Fulton

I had always known Jimmy but when I was his Guardian for the Flight of Honor to Washington DC we became real good friends, and especially each year as we Honored the WWII Veterans on Memorial Day each. Year. Jimmy was a special friend and a very kind and compassionate person. He will be missed. Norma Jean Joel Corum

Moving from the North to Eden, Jewel and Jimmy immediately befriended us and made us feel right at home in our new environment. Jimmy was always so gracious and invited me to become involved with Kiwanis - where we became good friends and while our stay in Eden was short we often think of Jimmy (and Jewel) and miss them dearly. The world needs more Jimmy Davidsons and he serves as an example we should all endeavor to emulate. A wonderful man - thank you Jimmy for all your life-lessons. Tom & Debbie Merritt, Toledo, Ohio.
