Roy Eugene Davis
Roy Eugene Davis was born March 9, 1931 to Dewitt Talmage and Eva Lee Davis in Leavittsburg, Ohio, and passed peacefully on March 27, 2019, after a short illness.
Mr. Davis was ordained a minister in 1951 to teach meditation practices. After two years in the U.S. Army Medical Corps at Fort Riley, Kansas, he began his mission as an independent teacher. He founded Center for Spiritual Awareness in 1972 in Lakemont, Ga. For 68 years he taught in more than 100 cities in North America and in Japan, Brazil, Europe, West Africa, and India. Mr. Davis wrote more than 50 books and several are in 11 languages and 10 countries. He was also the publisher of Truth Journal magazine and monthly lessons for CSA members around the world.
Including his parents, he was predeceased by his siblings Paul, Pauline, and Phyllis, and is survived by sister Mary Ann Davis of Maryland; niece Ada Simons of Foley, Missouri; nephew Amos (Laurel) Fegley of Girard, Ohio; and children Jeannette Wulff of Middlesex, Vermont, and Clark (Molly) Wulff, of Keene, New Hampshire. He is also survived by his loving wife, Willie Davis, stepdaughters Lisa Pardue (Gustavo Munoz) and their children Ava and Aaron; and Rebecca (Shawn) McKay of Tiger, Ga., and their children Austin, Haley, and Cole, all of Tiger, Ga. His compassionate and generous spirit is an inspiration and he will be missed by his students around the world, and especially by longtime co-workers Kathleen Low, Ron Lindahn, Rob Callaway, Rodney Amig, and friend and supporter, Clifford Rosen.
