It is with shattered hearts that we announce that our precious son, Matthew Davis (“Matt-Matt”), 28, unexpectedly went to be with Jesus early Saturday morning, August 14, 2021.
Matthew was born May 14, 1993, and was a blessing to all who knew him. Anyone who met Matthew knew what a beacon of joy he was. He touched so many lives with his smile and his song.
Matthew will be missed every single day by his parents, Christian and Amy Davis; his sister, Hannah Davis; his brother, Cai Davis; his sister, Mackenzie Davis; his maternal grandparents, Andrew and Brenda Willette, Jr.; and all of his loving aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends.
We know that Matthew is now in Heaven with his paternal grandparents, Guy and Jane Davis; his great-grandparents, Ralph and Lois Little, Sr. and Andrew and Polly Willette, Sr.; as well as his Uncle Ralph Little, Jr. (“Uncle Bo”).
Matthew enjoyed spending his time with his family, snuggling, going on car rides, listening to music (especially Classic Rock and Christmas), singing, and visiting the beach. One of Matthew’s favorite things was attending Surf Camp for individuals with autism each summer. He was most content either floating on the ocean or sitting in the surf while enjoying the scenery.
The family will be working to build a foundation in Matthew’s honor, to help continue supporting things Matthew would want to help. Please join Matthew’s group page on Facebook in order to share memories and watch for updates: https://www.facebook.com/groups/628601434772712
A memorial service will be held at Southview Baptist Church, 4089 Elk Road, Hope Mills, NC 28348 on Saturday, August 28 at 2 PM. Family and friends are invited to visit with Matthew’s family beforehand, beginning at 1 PM.
