Raymond Anthony Davis Jr.
Raymond Anthony Davis Jr. of Apex, NC passed away peacefully on April 8th at Transitions Life Care in Raleigh, NC after a long battle with cancer.
He was born in Bronx NY on December 1, 1944 to Raymond and Mary Davis. He received his M.S. in Electrical Engineering at Polytechnic Institute, New York, NY and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at Manhattan College in New York, NY.
He had multinational skills and extensively traveled all over the world: the USA, Europe, Caribbean, Asia, Brazil and Australia. He was knowledgeable in German, Spanish and French and studied Latin and Russian. Ray was an extremely intelligent man who although enjoying his ‘retirement’ still tutored friends and former colleagues in multiple subjects ranging from Algebra to Calculus.
Ray loved to laugh and enjoyed playing numerous practical jokes on his family and friends. He was a master of Photoshop and no one was safe from his antics. He enjoyed movies, oh so many movies, from history to horror movies, bowling, but mostly traveling.
He is survived by his loving mother Mary Davis of Cortlandt Manor, NY; two daughters Eva Marie (Scott) Compolattaro and Robin (Dan) Isidro both of Stamford, CT; a grandson Frank Compolattaro currently serving in the USMC and three granddaughters Jamie, Alyssa and Lori-Ann Compolattaro of Stamford, CT; sisters Kathy (Joe) Moker of New Milford, CT; Marianne (Jeff) Bischoff of Cortlandt Manor, NY; brothers Ronald Davis of Beacon, NY and Gerard Davis of Harrisburg, PA; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his father, Raymond A. Davis Sr and a grandson Nicholas Compolattaro.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday April 19, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Leo’s Parish, 24 Roxbury Road, Stamford. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Transitions LifeCare at http://www.transitionslifecare.org
