EDWARD DANIEL DAVIS, JR.
Edward Daniel Davis, Jr. 74 of Uniontown, PA., passed away peacefully February 7, 2021 at JW Ruby Memorial Hospital, Morgantown, WV.
Ed was born in Uniontown, PA on February 11, 1946, the son of the late Edward Daniel and Agnes (Miller) Davis. He graduated from Jefferson Morgan High School in 1964. After graduation he served in the US Army during the Vietnam War, where he was awarded several Military honors including National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, 2 Overseas Bars, and 2 Purple Hearts.
After the War, Ed attended Penn State University and moved to DuBois, PA where he was a Deputy Game Warden for the Pennsylvania Game Commission. He later retired as a Postal Supervisor for the DuBois Postal Service in 2002.
Ed certainly lived his life to the fullest. His life revolved around his love for his family, friends, and the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and boating in his spare time. He golfed and bowled in several local leagues, and his achievement of bowling three perfect games is recorded at the Professional Bowlers Hall of Fame. He was also an active member of the Italo American Club, Pals Club, and Am Vets.

He was preceded in death by his twin brother, Robert Nolan Davis.
