Leonard A. Davis
Leonard Allen Davis went to be with his Lord on the morning of August 23, 2015 at Saddle Ridge Therapy. Leonard was born on October 10, 1939 to the union of Hester and Ruth (Baker) Davis in Thermopolis, Wyoming. He grew up in the country doing hard work and in his fun time he and his brother, Keith rode horses and explored the hills. He learned to be fiercely self reliant and that carried all the way through life.After graduating from high school he came over to the Parkman, Wyoming area and did ranching and haying for several people including Woodson Moss. He met May Robinson there who was working as a nanny. They married and to them was born one child, Rose. He later decided to learn a trade so he packed up his little family and went to the Universal Trade School in Omaha, Nebraska. He and May were later divorced. In 1982 he met and married Diane Sullivan Heezen and she brought three daughters, Catherine, Brenda, and Amanda as well as cats and dogs into that union. He adored them and welcomed them as his own. A man with a big heart, there was room for everybody, even the pets. The appliance and air conditioning he learned in Omaha was his life long work and he did that for nearly 50 years, retiring due to ill health in October 2014.He worked for Montgomery Ward, Bob Edwards at City Electric but eventually decided to freelance and that served him well over the years. He was know for his high degree of integrity and had many returning customers who trusted him. His humor and kindness took him through many of the storms of life and he would always have great insight - a trait that will be sorely missed.He loved the old stories that the old timers would tell or of his years on ranches and it always brightened him up to think of the shenanigans. Leonard was preceeded in death by his beloved daughter, Rose, his parents, two brothers, Ray, and Jim and his first wife, May. He is survived by his wife, a brother, Keith, of Lander, sister, Esther of Thermopolis, and a sister Lois, of Casper, three daughters, Catherine (Perry) Roberts of Billings, Brenda Heezen (Jess) of Antioch, California, and Amanda(Gregg) Motonaga of Soldotna, Alaska.
