Michael Elwood Davison, Sr. of Byron, GA, formerly Robertsville, MO, departed this life in Byron on January 21, 2019, having reached the age of fifty-five years, eleven months and nineteen days. Michael was born in Eureka, MO, on February 2, 1963, son of Donald Elwood Davison and Betty Marie Davison nee Allen. As a young man, he was blessed to have one son. On December 22, 1997, he was united in marriage to Debra Ann Bush and they were blessed to have twenty-one years together.

Michael is survived by his wife, Debra Davison of Byron, GA; by his son, Michael E. Davison, Jr. of Colorado Springs, CO; by his brother, Mark Davison and wife, Angela, of Robertsville, MO; by one uncle, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, cousins and many friends.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Betty Davison, and by one sister, Brenda Lowry.

Michael was a Christian and past attendee of Rose Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Villa Ridge, MO. On June 27, 1988, Michael enlisted in the United States Air Force and was honorably discharged on November 21, 1988, due to health issues. During his working years, he was a foreman in the construction industry and member of the United Brotherhood of Laborers and the International Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners. He loved the outdoors and was proud to have worked on large commercial projects, helping to build high rise buildings and apartment complexes in Denver, CO. He loved to go fishing and do other outdoor activities. His passion and favorite pastime was working on hot rod cars and he was especially fond of his 1969 Camaro. Nothing made him happier than the time spent with his family and many wonderful memories were created.

A devoted and loving husband, father, brother, brother-in-law, nephew, uncle, great-uncle, cousin and friend, he will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved him.
