Robert M. Davis, 91, passed away on January 21, 2017. He was born on Feb. 22, 1925. Bob proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy. He was a Coach and an Athletic Director for Tecumseh High School where he was a mentor to many of his students. He was a member of Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame and Springfield/Clark County Baseball Hall of Fame. Bob had many accomplishments but his greatest was his love for his family.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 68 years, Dorthalee "Copie" Davis; son Luke A. Davis; sister and brother-in-law Darlene "Sis" and Roger Cooper; and son-in-law Randy Black.

Bob is survived by his daughter Shirley Black; sons Leslie (Nancy) Davis, Woody (Linda) Davis and Casey (Robyn) Davis; eight grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
A celebration of Bob's life will take place at the Bob Davis Field at Tecumseh High School on July 8, 2017.
