Herbert Delan Davis

Herbert D. Davis, 81, passed away at home on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, surrounded by his family. Herbert was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia and returned to Savannah in 1972 with his wife Margaret to live and raise their two children. 

Herbert was an Ironworker/Welder for the majority of his life after his service in the Airforce. He was a self-taught computer technician and used his computer knowledge to repair his family and friend’s computers numerous times, as it became a hobby of his. Herbert received awards in 2002 from the Department of the Army for his technical services and from DynCorp Technical Services for his dedication and service in support of “Enduring Freedom” while deployed to USARCENT-Kuwait for his computer expertise. 

He was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret (Strickland); two sons, Eric and Glynn Davis; his parents, Samuel and Margaret (Smith) Davis; as well as bothers, Paul and Thomas Davis. Surviving are his two sisters, Virginia Davis and Elizabeth (Ann) DuBose; sister-in-law, Martha Davis as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Graveside service will be held Monday, April 18, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. in the Greenwich Cemetery. 

The family suggest In lieu of flowers, any remembrances may be made in his memory to the United Way of the Coastal Empire, or a charity of your choice.



What a fascinating technical career which we all benefit from these zoom years. We are all indebted to the computer geniuses to make our lives enjoyable during the lock-down Covid years. We will tell Herbert how much we deeply appreciated his contribution to Society. He will be thrilled to see his family in paradise. John 5:28,29 He “rests”, but his works speak for him. We will all be thrilled to see Herbert when he awakens in paradise. Jesus will call and he will answer. Job 14:14 Isaiah 26:19 speaks of the joy when our family returns from the dust. We have eternity in our hearts and will experience perfect life in the paradise originally intended. May we all trust Christ’s heavenly Kingdom government to resurrect our dear ones. “Enjoy Life Forever” Love and Prayers, Sandy Wirfs

I’ll always remember Herbert’s positive and pleasant demeanor. It reminded me of Uncle Sam. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” — Revelation 21:3-4 (Son of Rebecca Pauline Davis Hutson)

I only knew Herbert as a face book friend for several years but enjoyed his wit and humor immensely. I could tell he was genuine and a loyal friend to all who knew him. Often wondered where he obtained his vast wisdom, as I had no idea he was 81 years young! his witty comments seemed to be from someone much younger. Very sharp and informed! You will be missed my friend RIP Herbert

My sympathy, love and care for you all as you grieve the passing of Herbert. May God give you comfort during this time. (Daughter of Rebecca Davis Hutson and Thomas Hutson).
