James Dillon Edwards Davis, fondly known as “Dillon,” age 23, had his life tragically taken on March 31, 2019, in Kingstree, SC. Dillon was the beloved son of Lewis Nexsen Davis, Sr. (Nick) and Brandon S. Davis (Brandy) and a devoted brother to Lewis Nexsen Davis, Jr. and Eliza Sheridan Davis. He was born on February 6, 1996, in Florence, SC.
Dillon attended both public and private schools in Pawleys Island and Williamsburg Academy in Kingstree, SC, from which he graduated. He played both Junior Varsity and Varsity football for Williamsburg Academy and was well known for his athleticism and speed on the football field. Dillon was instrumental in helping the WA Stallions win the 2013 SCISA state championship with his 88-yard touchdown run which his coach called ‘’the greatest play in the history of WA football.” Aside from his prowess on the football field, Dillon was known for his easy going, laid back demeanor and kind and caring nature. He loved his family, his pets and classic rock.
He will be terribly missed by his parents and two siblings as well as his grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. J. Richard (Gerrie) Sinners of Murrells Inlet, SC; aunts and uncles, Mr. & Mrs. Michael (Dana) Kinsey of Garden City, SC, Dr. IE Davis Ill of Lexington, SC, Dr. and Mrs. Barry R. (Benita) Davis of Greenville, SC; and his cousins, Katie Kinsey of Garden City and Harper, Karyston and Elin Davis of Greenville, SC; and his beloved pets. He was predeceased by his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. IE (Clarice) Davis Jr. of Georgetown, SC.
