Kindle "Bud" Davis died February 23, 2013 after a series of illnesses. He was born October 25, 1926, in Cotton Springs Community, Tishimingo County, Mississippi to Jessie Maulden Davis and Hubert Roscoe Davis. He has an identical twin brother, Windle "Buster" Davis, still living, now of Fulton, MS. He is survived by one son, Gary Kindle; a grandson and family, Andrea and Chris Blaylock, Kendall Joy and Sienna Rose; one sister, Faye Davis Mock (Arlis). He was preceded in death by his wife, Juanita Joy Brown Davis; his daughter and biggest fan, Anita Devon Davis Blaylock; brothers, Roy, Travis, Hollis, and Floyd; and sister, Bertie Davis Brown. Mr. Davis was a respected businessman and 51 year car dealer. During his last 37 years at Bud Davis Cadillac, the dealership won many awards, including 27 years as "Master Dealer" and 7 years as "Top 100 General Motors Dealers," one of its highest awards. He started his career coaching high school basketball in Tishimingo and Kossuth, Mississippi. His last two teams at Itawamba Community College won Mississippi junior college championships. This team was named the Itawamba Community College "Team of the Century" in 2000. Mr. Davis was a "leader of men" and prided himself on his love of family and friends. His customers were the #1 priority in his working life. He was devoted to his faith and to White Station Church of Christ. Always active in the communities where he lived, he was named "businessman of the year" in several communities. Charities were a huge part of his life with his latest favorites being Itawamba Community College and the Porter-Leath Children's Charities in Memphis. At his fundraiser for Porter-Leath, he loved interacting with the children and offering his "lessons for life." A lifetime joy was playing golf with his buddies.
