Paul John Davis,III, beloved local florist, died unexpectedly at his home on Monday, November 15, 2021. John was born on November 10, 1966 in Savannah, Georgia. A lifetime member of Calvary Baptist Temple, John spent his youth centered around his family, his church and Calvary Day School. John learned his love of flowers as a teenager and shortly after graduating from high school in 1985, John opened John Davis Florist in 1988. John’s great sense of humor and love of his family and friends helped him create a successful business at 2430 Abercorn, where people from all walks of life would drop by the shop just to see John. Savannah locals called him immediately when they needed support during milestone moments - a wedding, birth of a new baby, funeral or Jewish holiday. John always knew the light hearted thing to say to give comfort and helped spread joy with his flowers. His true home was at his shop where he could create a flower arrangement and talk to you about your family without skipping a beat. Named Savannah’s best florist for over 15 consecutive years, John created his unique arrangements for international dignitaries, Olympians, several Georgia governors and has organized weddings, special events and funerals in 10 foreign countries. John’s ability to make everyone laugh - even if he was poking fun at you - made him one of Savannah’s most beloved business owners. John had a deep love for animals and helped raise thousands of dollars for local pet charities. He loved Calvary football and Calvary girl’s basketball games, his hundreds of friends at Spanky’s and Tubby’s Thunderbolt, and his shop family. Thank you to the hundreds of people who have had the privilege of helping John deliver Valentine’s flowers, help set up for a wedding, or deliver flowers to the sick. His laugh and hugs will be missed but his love of this community and the people he touched will be forever remembered. As John would say, “Buy Flowers.”
John was preceded in death by his father, Paul John Davis, Jr.
John is survived by his wife, Jennifer Abshire Davis; his stepchildren Phillip and Reilly Abshire; his mother, Jacquelyn Graham Davis; his sisters Paula Branson and Pam Rody (James), niece Jacquelyn Rody, nephew Paul Rody, nephew Ryan Simons (Caitlyn); along with many more family members and more friends than anyone could ever name.
A Memorial Service will be held Thursday, November 18, 2021, 10:00 am, at Calvary Baptist Temple, 4625 Waters Avenue, Savannah, Georgia 31405.
Private burial will be in Dorchester Cemetery in Midway, GA.
Remembrances can be made to Calvary Day School.
A register book will be available, daily until 5:00 p.m., at Fox & Weeks, Hodgson Chapel or here on our website.

- Miria Center, Savannah, Georgia
Oh, my heavens! I am absolutely lost for words because I am still in disbelief of this sad news. Jennifer and Jackie, my heart breaks for each of you! May God wrap His powerful arms around you and Bless you with His strong Mighty Powers. The last time I was in the shop was to order flowers for my sister. Before I knew it, everyone was in the room giving me ideas and we got off the subject of flowers and just sat and talked forever. Finally, I told John I trusted him with my order and whatever he decided would be perfect…and it was. Love and Prayers to you!
- Faye Anderson , Pooler , Georgia
John is gone much too soon. He was a very nice person. He did the flowers for 2 daughters weddings and was a pleasure to work with. I loved his Facebook posts in which he never punctuated and always ended with “buy flowers”. Condolences to his family.
- Elaine Blau Becker, Savannah , GA
John stole the heart of Savannah with flower power. Coming from Oregon, where nearly everyone has a rose bush, I feel the love of the E. coast family. The whole community grieves with Jennifer and family. We know John will be resurrected, but we miss him right now. Lazarus’s sisters were weeping, and so did Jesus. But, not for long. When Jesus said COME OUT, he did, then tears of joy were flowing. Jesus will call, and John will answer, Job 14:14. Holy Spirit energizes us to stay busy comforting others, so the time passes swiftly. When John is awakened from “sleep” ,he will wonder why all the fuss. We want to be there in paradise to greet him. 1 John 2:17 says, the one who does the will of God remains forever. JW.org, “Enjoy Life Forever”. Warm Christian Love, Sandy Wirfs

John always had an instant smile for all of us who talked with him...and he helped me wonderfully with my father's funeral ten years ago... A beautiful soul now with God , in heaven.... He will be remembered by everyone who ever met him by his kindness, his humor, his goodness. May the family know how sorry I am to read of this unexpected loss. My sincere and heartfelt concern for all of you. Mildred Yarborough

Only knowing John for the recent past 7 years or so he made a huge impact on me in great spiritual ways. His pithy sense of humor, unwavering individualism, and uplifting attitude born of his great love of life truly gave me faith in humanity. HIs memory will live on in my heart and soul. Deepest condolences to Jennifer and his family. May you all find peace soon in beloved memories of John.
- Paula Fogarty, Savannah, Georgia
Sending lots of love and prayers to my family in Savannah, to Jennifer and all those so close to John. I am still in such disbelief that someone so full of life could just be gone so quick. Just like my great grandparents, his grandparents, he had a huge giving heart and knew no stranger and those are two admirable qualities and ones that have always inspired me. The world truly lost someone special and sadly at a time when we more people like him.

You always made everyone feel so loved. The flowers my family ordered for different occasions were always arranged perfectly by you. My Heather had such beautiful flowers at her wedding thanks to you. It was always a joke between us when I called you to decorate my home for the holidays. Your response was, “You mean for this year?” You never rushed a conversation with me always allowing me to know that you cared. Truly you will be missed. Loved you big!

I was so lucky to have met John Davis. I don’t think I have ever met anyone that exudes a love for life like he did. No matter what he always had a smile, a joke and a laugh that you could hear even when he wasn’t around. He always made people feel so special and valued. The most genuine, kind hearted person I have ever met. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. He will be so sorely missed. Thank you John Davis, in heaven, for all the joy and brightness you gave all of us.

If you weren’t laughing when you were around John, you weren’t really living. He was the LIFE of every room and situation he was in.

Jennifer, my heart aches for you. Savannah has lost another legend. John will not be forgotten!

- Monica McGoldrick, SAVANNAH, GA
I'm so sorry for your loss. It's a huge loss for Savannah as a whole and just everyone who ever got the privilege of standing next to John and hearing that hearty laugh of his and being surrounded by his big heart. John did the flowers at my daughter's wedding (Amie Schulz) when she married Wesley Dasher. That was the first time I met John. And heard of his dog birthday parties and would run into him on occassion always to feel like he remembered me and he'd just fall so naturally into conversation. I'm sad to know he's gone too soon from this side of heaven. Our loss. Heaven on the other hand....WOW...talk about a big celebration full of such joy.
- Suzie Schulz, Savannah, GA
I graduated from Calvary with John back in 1985 and also grew up in Kensington Park. I was new to Calvary in high school and John was always pleasant and friendly to me. I moved to Atlanta some years ago but still kept up with him at a distance through Facebook. His inherent good cheer and grace always shone through. I send my prayers and condolences to his extended family and friend. I wish you peace.
- Charles R. Bridgers, Atlanta, GA
John was a wonderful person who was loved by many people. It was always a pleasure to be around him. He will be greatly missed. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I was stunned to hear of John's passing and agree with so many others here that the world has lost a true treasure! I met John over 25 years ago when my mom and I consulted with him to do my wedding flowers. My mom and he hit it off immediately and talked like old friends for what seemed like hours.

Condolences to John’s family! I have known John since high school days at Calvary. He was always helpful with flowers under pressure and other occasions. He was an awesome person. I couldn’t just stop in the store to buy flowers…had to spend an hour catching up. He would tease me and I would tease him right back! He has left a hole in my life! May good memories get the family through this time. Love and Hugs Tracy Deemer Chance

Loved John from the first time I walked into the shop when we moved to Savannah. He did both daughters weddings with most beautiful flowers that lasted for forever. He was sweet, funny, talented and an amazing human being. Could not believe it when I was told he had passed away by my cousin Joey Rosen, John’s dear friend. Can still see the beautiful bouquet he sent my cousin Marilyn Cranman to make journey easier. May you Rest In Peace Dear John. Thanks for lovely memories.
- Harriet Simmons, Atlanta, GA
My heart goes out to the family for this great loss! I met John many years ago selling teddy bears and he just love it when I came to visit.
