Charles (Chuck) Anthony Davis, was born on April 10, 1964, to Earle and Joy (Lydon) Davis in Ogallala, Nebraska. Chuck graduated from Guthrie Center High School in 1982 where he participated in football, wrestling, track, and chorus.

In his early years, Chuck enjoyed his time on the Davis family farm near Guthrie Center. After graduating high school Chuck attended Palmer College of Chiropractic and graduated in 1992 with honors.

His career as a chiropractor led him to Clarion, Iowa where he purchased Clarion Chiropractic Clinic and served Clarion and surrounding communities for over 25 years. Chuck’s chiropractic work was a source of joy, and he developed lasting relationships with many patients. He loved his patients and was known as Doc Davis to many. Chuck enjoyed volunteering as the team doctor for Clarion Goldfield high school athletes for many years and gave free care to any active athlete.

Chuck and Mary (Caslavka) Davis were married May 2, 1987 in Iowa City, Iowa.  Chuck found a lot of joy in watching his five children grow up. He loved his family deeply. He enjoyed supporting them through their sports, dance, and many other school and church activities. He never missed an opportunity to cheer them on. Chuck, along with his wife Mary celebrated their kids through many milestones. From high school and college graduations, to seeing them start families of their own. One of Chuck’s most important and loved roles was “Grandpa”. As Grandpa, he adored his three grandchildren more than anything and would show you pictures any chance he got.

Chuck will always be remembered for his big smile and his ability to make every stranger a friend.  He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to joke around.  He was passionate about helping people.

Chuck was an active member of St. John’s Catholic Church for many years and volunteered for various committees and activities in the church. He was deeply faithful and loved delivering cross necklaces to his caregivers so that they would know the love of Jesus.

Chuck was preceded in death by his loving parents, Joy and Earle Davis and his grandparents, Tom and Ila Lydon and Glen and Mary Davis and his uncles, Paul Lydon and Noel Johnson.

Chuck is survived by his wife of 36 years, Mary and their five children: Anthony (Megan) Davis, Nathan (Maggie) Davis, Claire Davis, Brendan Davis, and Isaac Davis; his three grandchildren, Alder, Madison, and Prim; his siblings, Brian (Jean) Davis, Jodi (John) Russell, and Mike (Sonia) Davis; and his many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

We will miss his sense of humor and his contagious laugh that filled a room. We will simply miss our dad, husband, grandpa, and brother.
