Roland Davis


Roland E. Davis, 67, of Taylors Island passed away peacefully Thursday, October 23, 2014 at the home of his caregiver in Cambridge.
Born in Baltimore on January 18, 1947, he was a son of the late Katherine Elizabeth Grewe and William Charles Davis.
As a young boy growing up in Baltimore, Roland was always fascinated with the railroads. After school he would ride his bike down to the tracks to watch the trains. Roland went to work with CSX as soon as he was old enough and was a Trackman for over 40 years.
Roland enjoyed the outdoors. He found his second home on Taylors Island. Roland and his mother moved to the area from Baltimore. The sunset across the tranquil water and the peacefulness of the country was like heaven to Roland.
Surviving is his son Edward and wife Sheri of Texas; a brother Charles and wife Gail of Florida; grandchildren Kimberly Davis and Ryan Davis; caregiver and special friend Denise Fletcher of Cambridge.
Preceding him in death besides his parents was his wife Donna and son John Richard Davis.
A graveside funeral service will be held Friday, October 31, 2014 at the Bethlehem Brick Church Cemetery, Taylors Island beginning 1:00 p.m. Interment will follow.

So very sorry to get this news. Roland and I are cousins (our mom's are sisters) It makes it even more bittersweet that we were trying to locate Roland last summer for a family reunion and couldn't reach him. Though we haven't been in touch since his mom passed he was always in our hearts. Our deepest sympathy to his family.

We are so sad to hear of the passing of our cousin Roland. We all have so many sweet memories of growing up together and the wonderful times spent in our large Grewe family. I hope that he knew how hard we were trying to contact him this summer to include him in our Grewe Family Reunion. Roland you were or never will forgotten. Rest in Peace.

My dad Toady and Roland's mom Betty were brother and sister. I tried, without success, to contact Roland and Charles earlier this year about the Grewe Family Reunion. My condolences to Roland's family. I would love to hear from any member of his family, especially Charles.
