Charles R. Davis
May 08, 1960 ~ October 24, 2021
Charles R. Davis, 61, affectionately known as Randy, passed away peacefully on October 24, 2021, in Jupiter, Florida. He was wonderfully cared for at Home Suite Home operated by Dave Whelihan and staff. Thank you to Father Aidan Lacy of St Patrick’s Catholic Church, and Chaplain Todd of Trustbridge Hospice, for your generous time, prayers, and support towards Randy.
Randy was born in Lynchburg, VA on May 8, 1960.
He is survived by his brother Michael J Davis, DDS, and wife Cheryl Davis, niece Maura and nephew Keeley, sister Gloria Spruell and husband Jim Spruell, niece Savannah, nephew Dakota and sister Laura Davis, and was predeceased by his father Robert J. Davis, Jr., and mother Jeanette L. Davis.
Randy enjoyed working as a highly skilled mechanic and mentor on his job at European Motorwerks in Jupiter, FL. His supervisor, Manny, recognized his excellent problem-solving mechanical skills and gave him the opportunity to restore a rare Porsche. It is truly a showpiece for all Porsche aficionados!
All who knew Randy while living in Lynchburg, knew of his love of mechanics by the countless hours he spent in our driveway taking out the engines in his VW Beetle on blocks while blasting Boston tunes. We also had a ping-pong table in the basement that became his parts area. Amazing all those parts found their way back into the engine with precision! He was very proud of his navy blue convertible Super Beetle with an upgraded Hurst shifter. All this intricate work must have forged a huge amount of patience because he taught his younger sister Laura to drive that Beetle in the hills of Lynchburg, VA. Never did he show a hint of exasperation!!
While living in Jupiter, Florida, for the past 23 years, he was known for living in the moment. He found a wonderful friend-filled establishment called the Square Grouper Tiki Bar on Jupiter Inlet. By the stories told, it resembled a scene from “Cheers.” Randy was well known there by his smile and contagious laugh. A very happy place for him. He was loved and will be missed by many.
Thank you, Barbara Dwyer and your father, Howard Dwyer, for being constant friends in his last 10 years even to the end of his life. Barbara, you were his light and go-to person during a very difficult time. Thank you Brian O’Neill for being Randy’s long-term friend since he moved to the Palm Beach area. We are so grateful for you and your mother Diane’s kindness in contacting Father Lacy, who supported Randy tremendously. Thank you Primo for also being his close friend to the end and making my brother laugh in his hospital bed as though there were no terminal diagnosis. I’m sure there are many more who impacted/befriended Randy and if you are reading this and are one of the many, my gratitude to you as well.
Celebration of Life services will be performed at The Square Grouper in January 2022. Date to be determined and announced on Facebook.
