Obituary of Bryant Eugene Davis

Bryant Eugene Davis was born in San Diego, California on May 1st, 1973 and passed away in Bellingham, Washington on April 28th, 2019. He loved cooking, playing guitar, making music, writing poetry, and spending time with family and friends. He began his first career as a chef but spent the last 20 years as a tremendously passionate realtor and won multiple prestigious awards with RE/MAX. He loved meeting new people and turning them into great friends. He loved to help people and make their dreams come true. Bryant’s character was funny, empathetic, crass, kind-hearted, giving, hard-working, loving, sarcastic, deep, and witty. Four years ago, his “brother” Dragan Skrobonja passed, and Bryant really desired their good friend Aaron Holmes who wrote in Dragan’s obituary to write a few words for himself which are below:

 

BRYANT’S SONG

"Business brain

Hustled with his heart

Would tuck you in his bed with the shirt off his back

A chef with passion that mirrored his life

Spiced with laughter

The sweat off his brow served with a crooked smile

And ears like a landing pad for

Your troubles and concerns

You would hunger for nothing in his presence

All he ever wanted in return was you time and your smile.”

 

His wife Emily would like to share his most recent love poem to her,

“I love your desire

I love the way you make me feel

You’re my hero & that’s a fact

Even when things were blue

You’ve been my inspiration,

Battled ready trust

I’ll sing from my heart

you’ve changed me!

In all the ways that are

For me, you’re my desire

Your presence has a ripple

The inspiration that fuels

This color paints away from grey

Please keep up the fight

You’re doing right

For yourself and all of us that care

You’re beautiful

Your smile is poetry

You’re my muse

And I’m the luckiest man I know.”

Bryant was well loved and respected by many in the Pacific Northwest. He was one of the most passionate people you could ever know. Bryant is survived by his wife, Emily Davis; daughters Sierra and Taya Davis and their mother Tami Davis; father Eugene Davis and his wife Nadine; and six siblings: Darren, Lori, Kristi, Kari, Tyler, and Kyle and their families. He is also survived by a multitude of close friends and family. He is preceded in death by his mother Katherine (Smith) Davis.
