Obituary for David Davidson

David Hartley Davidson, 84, died peacefully at home on Nov. 26th. He was born to Ida Eliza and Alonzo Hart Davidson on July 18, 1933, and grew up in Jay, FL. His step-father, Dan Holland, helped raise him after his father's death.

On Sept. 30, 1959, Hartley married the love of his life, Peggy, and they were happily married for 56 years until her death in 2015.

A professional musician and songwriter, he moved to Houston in the 1960s and enjoyed regional success with his band, the Impellas. He later worked for Tenneco Realty, from which he retired. Following retirement, he spent much of his time playing music with friends and spending time with friends at the Sugar Land Senior Center.

He is survived by daughters Toni Lassiter (husband Jimmie) of Jay; and Vikki Smedley (husband Mark) of Houston. Other survivors include his sister Ouida Coffey and brother Aaron Holland, both of Florida; four grandchildren: Jeremy Smedley, Jim Lassiter (wife Sandy), Jeanna Barrow (husband Frederick), Barry Lassiter (fiancé Jessica); seven great grandchildren: Kayla Barrow (husband Andrew), Samuel David Lassiter (wife Katie), Benjamin Aaron Lassiter, Rebecca Danielle Lassiter, Kendall Barrow, Grant Barrow, Makenna Barrow; and three great great grandchildren: Hartley Jo Barrow, Henzley Jean Barrow and Jonas Dwight Barrow.

He will be remembered for his sense of humor, intelligence, talent, generosity, and most of all, for his love of family, friends, and music.

* Thank you Mark Smedley for welcoming my Dad into our house for the last 2-1/2 years and making him feel at home. Love, Vikki

** A special note of thanks to Dave’s caregiver Paula Hammond from the family - With loving thanks for the joyful companionship you brought to him over the last almost 3 years and the relief to us that he was safely cared for when we were away from home.
Thanks also to those that filled in caring for my Dad: Gail, Jessica, Scott and Jan.
