Obituary for Donald Davis

Donald  Davis
Donald Galen Davis, 83, passed from this life June 3, 2018. Funeral services will be at 10:00am on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the United Methodist Church in Yale, OK. with the Reverend Richard Ayers officiating. Interment will follow in the Ingalls Cemetery. Strode Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
Donald was born in Stillwater, OK. on October 15, 1934 to Harold P. and Edna (Hartman) Davis. Donald graduated from Ripley High School and went on to receive his Bachelor Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Oklahoma State University. On September 23, 1962, Donald and Jeanie Muegge were united in marriage in Lamont, OK. They later divorced.
Donald was a Petroleum Engineer who was the VP of Big Chief Drilling Company until 1976 when he resigned his position to establish El Dorado Drilling and all subsidiaries. He then retired to his childhood home and ranch in Ingalls, OK. where he ran cattle, a bulldozer business and took much joy in farming the “Davis Land.”
He was a member of Mehan Union Church and the United Methodist Church of Yale; the OSU Alumni Association and President’s Club; the NRA; he was a former VP of AAODC for the Pacific Beach Coast Region; and an avid OSU fan. He enjoyed supporting all sports through contributions and event sponsorships. He was a loyal friend with a contagious laugh and smile. He was also a great story teller and left everyone better than he found them.
Donald was preceded in death by his parents; twin brother Pete Davis; sisters Lila Hart and Sheila Dean.
Donald is survived by his daughters Shannon Davis and Kelly Davis-Tennison; grandchildren Taylor Davis, Morgan Brant, Sheriden Davis and Avery Brant; sister Carol Robinson and best friend since childhood Rosie Dorsey.
